I adore lanterns too...They give such a great look...I adore your selection...Especially the last one. So stunning!Kisses and enjoy your day my lovely :)
I am loving the square lanterns! And...I think I'm ok with waiting to SATC =) I did go to the theatre last year but it was because we put cosmos in our water bottles ;)
i mean...'last year' as in whenever the last time SATC came out. i'm bad at timelines :)
I love lanterns repeated down a hallway. Great images!
great quote! love that last square lantern the best!
I love lanterns with candles for al fresco dining, for hallways as you featured, for kitchens above islands and for speacial nooks (in our playroom my son's nook has one waiting the completion of the rest of the project....which I'll show once done) Great post!
I love the ones that people put outside, very My Fair Lady!http://itscohen.blogspot.com/

Yes! The 6th photo is my favorite!
Me either- definitely adding them to our kitchen or my office in our new home :)My friend just got some beauties at Pottery Barn...
Love the lanterns in the second to last image - what a great touch with the coffered ceiling! Gorgeous!
Oh I love all these images! I think lanterns are a neat touch to a room
Timeless and classic.... in any setting! Love the pictures, the dreams they inspire and the quote!Happy Thursday, Z! xx P&H
Oh it seems the day of lanterns today! A few hours ago I saw also a post about lanterns on Nest Egg blog!I love the lanterns! Simetimes we really should hang a lantern instead of a chandelier.xxGreet
The rooms AND the lanterns are all beautiful
I love lanterns, I have two that I have on top of my cabinets in the kitchen and I would love more! They also make great centerpieces :)
Oh my, I love the first set and the last big one...thank you for looking beyond the chandelier...even though it's pretty too :)

Hey there. Thanks for the comment on my blog. I appreciate it. Great post here. I enjoy checking out your blog. Hope you've had a wonderful week. Enjoy the upcoming weekend.
i really like the one in the fourth picture
I want to hang a huge one over my breakfast table... I have so many projects outstanding!
Okay the oversized dining room one is definitely my fave. Big fan of lanterns. Is one in every room too much?! ;)
I'm loving lanterns and the bigger the better! : )
I lanterns lined up down hallways. I think it's one of the best places for them!!Great picks!
oh my goodess zushie, that first one had me gasping. it is perfection!
SO GOOD. You are soo, soo good! We are planning a renovation for a bigger, better mudroom, laundry, etc...I love the one of the 2 oversize lanterns in what appears to be a mudroom. That will be going in "the file"!
ooooohhhhh, that bedroom. that second to last image, that bedroom! that is a WOWIE room for me. LOVE that. WANT that room. good find!! all of them though, great images. i too dig lanterns. :)
I wish I had higher ceilings!
Hi! I've given you an award! (you have so many already, it might be boring, sorry!)
Lanterns add such fun character. Love that top hall photo. Love the lanterns, benches and that photo wall is great!
These pictures are all so inspiring. Who would have thought that lanterns could be so fabulous? I really love how large the last one is over that dining room table. I can’t even describe the feeling it gives off; but I do love it : ) have a fabulous day my lady! XO
can there be too many lanterns, really?makes me think of paul revere. :)
My excuse for having way too many lanterns is that I live in a subdivision called "Lantern Bay"!Love Love Love Lanterns!!!!!!!Great post with beautiful images and one fabulous quote :)xo
Gorgeous post! I ♥ lanterns, they feel outdoorsy but in a beachy, cute way.
I love lanterns! They remind me of romance and The Little Prince. I always take so many pictures of them when I see them on vacation. I would love to have a house filled with lanterns. It would be so magical.
Yes,all the rooms look great with the lanterns,i wish to have one installed in my backyard~happy day:)
Oh lanterns you add so much to a place! Happy Thursday sweetie!
Those are gorgeous - they totally set the mood!
Oh me too....did you see the room that nate berkus did on the today show today... LANTERN.... so cool!xx

I have honestly never thought about using lanterns for interior decorating but love the look! Kind of a fresh take on the chandelier.xxoo Josiehttp://winksmilestyle.blogspot.com
Lanterns add such a different ambience to ordinary lamps. Right now it's so warm + I'm longing for the perfect outdoor space with a lovely to enjoy warm breezy evenings...
I'm lantern obsessed too! Great photos.
Love lanterns inside and out!! Great images, Happy weekend!! Kathysue
i like the idea of the multiple lanterns down the hallway in pic 1
I have a lantern I bought at a flea market in St. Tropez in my courtyard -- I cut out all of the wiring and just use a candle -- it is so beautiful!!
Great inspiration! I love the first lantern the best. When I get a house I am totally changing it up a bit with lanterns!
I love lanterns - these are some great finds!
They're all so pretty and interesting, but the last one is stunning! What an awesome way to add character to a room. xoValerie
I love lanterns--especially Moroccan ones!
I love these! It's so funny, we had a lantern like this in our foyer when I was little, I never paid much attention to it, but now it's super-chic! That is pretty much the story of my life, lol!
I think you just inspired me to replace our horrid dining room light fixture with a cute lantern! Love all of these.
I'm loving these lanterns... now, I want to change our chandeliers to lanterns. xoxo
the lights i put on the outside of my house are 'lanterns' - i love the "feel" about them too!!!*Kisses*Erika ~Tiptoe Butterfly~
That's such a good quote; it's from The House of Mirth, right? Love that book. And love these pictures with lanterns - what a great alternative to chandeliers!
oooh those are quite lovely indeed! i thought you were going to be talking about the paper ones, ha! my son has one in his room and i want to do magenta ones at my wedding. but these are really beautiful; i'm updating all of the lighting in my condo soon and i'll definitely consider one!
me too dude.
the bigger the better. I want change my light out to an oversize lantern in my little breakfast nook! These are lovely.
WOW, all of these spaces are amazing! Lanterns are so charming, and I just love them.:) marcie
That first hallway is stunning! :)

Lanterns in the bedroom! Would have never thought of that ans I love it! Have a pretty night! Kristin
What a wonderful line up! I wonder a little how good they are over a dining table, but they are surely wonderful to look at! I love them in hallways, so gorgeous!XXVictoria
the lanterns need to be oversized, bigger looks better.pve
They look wonderful. Now I want to bring the outside in.
My absolute favorite lanterns have that gorgeous natural patina from years of enjoyment. Lovely pictures.
Oh, I hear you over here in Seattle! I especially like the large, simple square ones. No, wait - can that be true???! I thought I was all for round objects! You are changing my taste and style, girlie! And it is all for the better!A warm hug. Mon.
i don't have a single lantern! and your lovely post is making me want to run out and get a dozen!!!
I especially like lanterns out on the balcony with candles during the summer! They are soo dreamy!Hope you have a lovely weekend:) Hazel
The lanterns are all lovely, but I'm especially lost in admiration of the unusual floor-lamp in the 6th image. Oh to have one of those.
