Playful Paper Lanterns

July 22, 2019

Nothing says "summer" like a paper lantern.  Around for centuries, these whimsical orbs can quickly and inexpensively dress up a room for a special summer feeling.  Let's get inspired by taking a look at some rooms around the house.


Oh, baby!

A dominate globe brings in the summer.

Imagine this lantern glowing during a late evening meal.


Lanterns make a fun focal point in a Scandinavian bedroom.


Paper lanterns work in all styles of rooms.



Look how a few orbs energize a blah hallway.


Guess there's such a thing as too many lanterns . . .

Every summer, we used to put these paper lanterns in our entryway.  Fun for summer as they make everyone smile!  As you might imagine, paper lanterns come in a zillion colors, sizes, shapes and prints.  A good resource is where white round paper lanterns with crisscross ribbing are affordable (24" for $3 and 36" for $20).  Don't forget an $8 light kit which will light up a large lantern with a soft evening glow resembling a magical moon.  Here's to dreamy summertime living.
