Perpetuate the light: using lanterns around your home this autumn

October 2, 2019 0 By Nordic House

As the light changes, it’s time to think about how you can use lanterns around your home this autumn for a romantic and nurturing effect.

Often, when it comes to autumn, we think about “losing” the light. And perhaps it can feel that way. We say goodbye to the sunshine the way it lights our evenings.

But rather than see a loss, we prefer to look at it as an opportunity to enjoy different hues and tones around the home.

Instead of sunlight drifting in through the window, we can place candles and lanterns around our home, providing romance, cosiness, and natural light to live by.

A symbolic shift

There’s something particularly symbolic about having lanterns outdoors in the summer, and bringing them inside where they’re needed for autumn. Having absorbed all the sunlight of the summer, we’re now able to light our homes and ourselves from within.

Because they’re so easy to move around as needed, lanterns are a wonderful year-round feature for your home and garden. They can be gathered together, or stand alone.
