Decor Inspiration: Outdoor Lanterns...

Hi everyone!
Hope you are all enjoying your Thursday! I 've had a lovely relaxing morning sitting in the sun , drinking coffee and browsing interior magazines! Well we do have to make the most of it when it appears here!! As I was reading I came across some lovely images of outdoor lanterns and I love how much ambience they can add to a summer setting. Here are some gorgeous inspiration photos I found on Pinterest...




I have a couple of lanterns already but I must add some more styles to my collection... Here are a few of my current favourites..


Bamboo style @ French Connection Home



 Porthole Lantern @ M&S


Marrakesh Lanterns @ Littlewoods

Now I'm off out to catch a few more rays and as I haven't done any baking this week I may fit in a recipe tomorrow for the weekend .

Hope you all enjoy your evening:)

  1. I purchased the large version of the porthole lanterns in marks and Spencer's I would recommend them I love the round shape. I look forward to using them outside rather than inside on my return.

  2. They are lovely, aren't they, and would be so nice for dinner outside. Like you I've dropped everything to make the most of the sun just now!

  12. How funny - I was just thinking about maybe getting out our lanterns (we are hoping to have a barbecue tomorrow!) I have some cream Moroccan ones which we didn't even use last year as the summer was so disappointing. I love your selection - the French Connection one is lovely - unusual. Have a great, hopefully warm weekend!

  13. I love lanterns too--the 2nd picture is so peaceful! I have several lanterns but hardly ever use them--they're more for decorating. Love your finds--they're so unique!
