For the Home: Tips for Styling Lanterns In Your Home

Lanterns are extremely versatile and stylish pieces to add to your home decor. With so many options for how and where to display them, it's no wonder that so many interior designers and decorators frequently use them in their designs. And with so many choices of where and how to display them, there's also the choice of what types of lanterns work best for your home. Lanterns come in a variety of styles, sizes, shapes, materials, and colors. Here's a few tips on how to choose what lanterns to use in your home and how to style them so you can add your personal touch.

  • Consider the style of your home. Lanterns come in a variety of styles, so choose one that will complement the overall look of your home. For example, if you have a traditional home, you might choose a lantern with a classic design. If you have a more modern home, you might choose a lantern with a sleek, minimalist design.

  • Think about the size of the lantern. The size of the lantern will affect how it looks in your space. If you have a small space, you'll want to choose a smaller lantern. If you have a larger space, you can choose a larger lantern.

  • Choose the right location for the lantern. Lanterns can be used in a variety of places in your home. They can be used on tables, shelves, or even the floor. If you're using a lantern on a table, you'll want to make sure that it's the right height so that it doesn't block your view.

  • Add some greenery. Adding some greenery to your lantern will make it look more inviting. You can use real or faux greenery. If you're using real greenery, make sure to keep it watered.

  • Use candles. Candles are a great way to add some ambiance to your lantern. You can use pillar candles, votives, or tea lights. If you're using candles, make sure to use a lantern that is flame-safe.

  • Get creative with your styling. There are no rules when it comes to styling lanterns. You can get creative and experiment with different looks. For example, you could put a lantern in a basket or on a tray. You could also hang a lantern from the ceiling.

  • Make It Your Own. If you have a lantern with a glass or metal frame, you can use it to display photos, seashells, or other small objects. If you have a lantern with a fabric or paper shade, you can change the shade to match the season or your mood. You can also use lanterns to create a focal point in a room. For example, you could put a large lantern in the center of a coffee table or on a bookshelf.
