Pottery Barn always offer a huge collection of lanterns and lights in styles that are romantic, art deco, rustic and casual to suit every design you can dream of. Galvanized, aluminum and cast-iron lanterns add an industrial and rustic look to any home, making these particularly great for use outside. Polished silver, brass and bronze all lend a subtle shine to your room and can be used as part of contemporary or casual designs. Add a touch of light reflection by using votive candles inside your lanterns. The flame reflects through the glass of the votive and lantern for soft, romantic light that dances brilliantly.
When choosing a lantern, you want to first decide what room you want to place it in. Lanterns work great in entryways and hallways to brighten up dark spaces and welcome guests with a gorgeous glow. Stagger several up the stairway to illuminate the path both indoors or outdoors on the back patio. Lanterns can also accessorize an accent table or fill large corners and floor space with a combination of lanterns and bins and baskets that add organization to your space. Choose lanterns in varying heights and woven baskets to create texture and dimension in your room. Colored baskets add a punch of color that brightens up the room while canvas bins add casual storage that blends perfectly with refined lanterns in weathered and white finishes. You can also set them strategically around the room or backyard for a casual appeal.
The beautiful thing about lanterns is that even the simplest styles can be dressed up by adding decorative objects. If your decor is beach inspired, add seashells, soft sand, corals or glass balls to create an airy retreat that transports you to your favorite beaches. Add a touch of glamour with roses or invoke the essence of fragrant springtime with lavender and daisies. You can even turn your lantern into a seasonal and holiday decor hit by adding autumn leaves and Christmas inspired holly to create romantic atmosphere that is perfect for encouraging engaging conversation.
