The Perfect Lantern

When I build a home or when I walk through a home, the first thing I look at are the light fixtures!  I guess you could call me a light fixture snob.  Light fixtures finish off a home, and if you leave no money at the end of a project for your light fixtures...big mistake!!!

So if you're building or re-modeling a home, I recommend playing up your light fixtures as much as your budget will allow!  I promise you'll never regret.

While I was building my last house I came across the website "Authentic Provence."  Here they have the most beautiful lanterns I have ever seen and I wanted to share them with you.

These lanterns add so much to this kitchen.  Lanterns are so versatile...they go with everything!  Check out "Authentic Provence,"  you'll have so much fun!!!


  1. Desireé,
    You are like me! I always look at the lighting when I enter a house! And not only at the inside but even on the outside!
