If you haven’t experimented with decorating with light, it is time to give it a try. You can change the entire mood of a room or area of your home with just the simple application of light.
A dull and boring area can be brought to life with just the use of some brighter lighting. You can make a room that seems cold instantly warm up by softening the lighting in the room. If conversations are lacking around the room during your next gathering, try softening the light and watch as people start loosening up from the cozy atmosphere.
If you have strong overhead lighting, forego using it at all and opt for several smaller soft lights. Putting lanterns around a room will lend a homey feel a room and add soft lighting that will generate a decidedly cozy feel. You don’t have to use a metal industrial lantern like the one in case of emergencies you keep in your car trunk, you can opt for a beautifully designed scroll worked table lantern that will add to your decor rather than detract from it.
You can also use lanterns outdoors in areas you don’t have lighting to softly light the paths to your home for guests that are coming over. They look great lined up along patios, pools, gardens, walk ways, driveways, and anywhere you’d enjoy seeing the soft glow of light. They are constructed from environmentally friendly recycled wrought iron. The finish on these lanterns is powder-coated for year round weather resistance and rust prevention. The removable glass is wind and waterproof. There are no messy lamp oils to deal with, just pop in a simple candle and you’re ready to go. The heavy base ensures no tipping. The soft lighting will help you create the perfect ambiance for any holiday occasion.
