Bringing the lantern inside...

Posted August 12, 2010 by Christina

I love the look of lanterns inside.  It just seems like a great contrast to so many interiors these days, making things not too fancy.  They are showing up everywhere - the dining room, the entryway,
the bedroom and the family room.  What do you think?  Would you do it?  Have you done it?

These are some of my current favorites...

Now why didn’t I think of that. You are so right. Lanterns used to lurk around entrance and hallways, but now they are hanging over the dining room table. Hooray for the lanterns. It is time they were liberated!

I love bringing outdoor elements in. Have had a lantern on my nesting list for a while, but have just been lazy in deciding which one. Thanks for re-inspiring me!

I love lanterns and you have truly showed us a wonderful range here. So many to choose from and the pictures are all so inviting.

Hoping you are well. Sorry for my absence. Things have been a bit tricky for a while due to my daughter’s asthma. Glad to be back.

Have a lovely weekend.
