In a London home, wall shelves filled with wrapped boxes and paper chains subtly glow from behind, thanks to a string of white holiday lights running their length. Keeping the shelves clean and well lit makes them feel more like a special display. Your turn: Upload photos of your fresh ideas for holiday lights in the Comments. We’d love to see how you’re making your home glow.See more holiday decorating ideas on Houzz
