In every place I’ve lived, from my parents’ house to my college dorm to my city apartments, there has been some version of string lights. I’m not an overhead lighting kinda gal, so I need all the atmospheric light options possible.

Whether they’re wrapped around a balcony, hung from ceilings, or used to light a backyard, we’ve rounded up a few strands to keep your space looking great.
