TWEAKS+inspiration : Summery Playful Paper Lanterns

In case you missed it, I'm publishing this post once more, Happy Sunday!

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 made 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.
