I have wanted one ever since I saw a photo in a mag with one dangling in between 2 vanity mirrors. Oooh! Maybe I could hang one over my bathtub! OK, that is totally going to be in the works although there is a pot light up there, and then there is the whole code business. Code schmode.
Anyway, I have a client with a totally mod U shaped house that encloses an outside courtyard with a pool in the middle, I love it. And all around that U is a hallway with every room off the hallway. So the hallway is a big part of the house and leads you through the house and connects everything. It needs to have some pizazz. I am thinking these star lanterns to lead your eye through the hallway, but she is unsure. I will bring this pic and we shall hang something up there to resemble a lantern to see if we can get an idea what it might look like. She’ll come around, or I will come up with something else. The wheels have just begun turning.;)
Here is a great source for those lanterns from Domino magazine:
