Lanterns might have found their origin in the serene Japanese homes and lavish palaces centuries ago but they as much a part of modern day lighting across the world today as your typical pendants and chandeliers.
Not a fan of the black and white look? Do not worry too much as you can still work with the black chandelier in a modern living room or kitchen filled with bright colors. The dark chandelier in the vivacious room anchors the setting and acts more as a neutral addition rather than a dramatic centerpiece.
DIY Paper Lanterns from Serendipity Soiree are one of our absolute favorites when it comes to gorgeous lantern designs. They seem ornate yet understated and fit into a wide variety of styles and themes. If you feel that they are a touch too ‘cute’ then try out the elegant Illuminated Yarn Lanterns which feel a bit more airy.
Combing a series of string lights or even multiple individual lights to create a collection of lanterns is undoubtedly the best way to illuminate the porch rear garden front yard or even contemporary deck this festive season.

When it comes to wrapping décor with string lights the Holiday season brings an endless array of possibilities. Get creative and have fun!
