It’s no secret that we love lanterns in the summer. Our latest collection speaks for itself! Glowing lanterns create the perfect ambiance indoors and outdoors, adding summer’s warmth to each room in the home.

Take a look at some of our favorite ways to use lanterns both indoors and out to see how you can add a dose of summer style to your house.

Add light to your living room. Replace a couple of your table lamps with large, metal lanterns filled with flameless candles. They’ll add the same ambient light to your living room with an entirely different look.

Style your bedroom. We love how these two ceramic lanterns add color and warmth to a bedroom dresser vignette. The tray of coral completes the scene perfectly!

Accent the outdoors. Lanterns are great outdoor accents. Use flameless candles to add light to your patio or pathway on warm summer nights.

Hang them from the rafters. Try something traditional and hang lanterns from rope or ribbon. Hanging them at alternating heights will create a slightly more modern touch.

Dress up a coffee table. A simple coffee table vignette with a lantern or two is all you need in an outdoor living room.

Light up at dinnertime. Small, candlelit lanterns on tabletops make indoor or outdoor dining look romantic and feel special.

… Or don’t light them at all! We love filling lanterns with favorite decorative objects. Use shells and coral in the summer, and ornaments and faux snow in the winter!
