5 Favorite Entry Way Lanterns

One of the easiest ways to customize your home is by changing out the builder-grade, outdated light fixtures for new, upgraded lights. I’ve upgraded 2, count ’em, two lights since we moved in more than 3 years ago. It’s time to change up some more lighting in this house, don’t cha think??

A little over a week ago, I posted this photo to my Facebook page and asked for opinions on which one was the favorite.

B and D were the clear favorites and that exercise helped me solidify that I do want a lantern look in my foyer.

One of my Facebook friends asked me an important question, though. She said she couldn’t pick one without seeing my space and what I have in there. Good point.

So, I decided to play around with photoshop and see what some of my favorite lanterns would look like in my entry way.

But before we do that, here’s the light that came with the house. It’s a swirly white bowl light, or something like that. 🙂 Eek!

I mean, somebody out there may like it, but it’s not for me. And it collects bugs. Yuck! (Don’t mind the shininess on the door. I took it a couple of years ago right after I painted the door and it wasn’t quite dry yet.)

I took the two lanterns I had in the original compilation, and then added 3 more than I really like.

I have a favorite, I think. But it really helped me to see them in the room.

Once I started thinking about it, I realized the Springfield Lantern was probably too shiny for the space. It was actually my favorite before I thought about the rest of the room.

I fell in love with Delaney Pendant. It’s square, which balances out all of the circles in the space. But the curves at the top mimic the door and the mirror. I’m pretty sure it’s the front runner at this point. I love it!

Sooo, which one do you love? Why?

  3. I know this post is over two years old, and you’ve most likely already made your choice, but the Piedmont lantern from Ballard Designs in navy would be stunning with your navy front door.

  4. I love the one you chose. Thanks for sharing these lights with us and fabulous idea to put it in PhotoShop to help make the decision! I have lights that need to be changed too…just need to pull the trigger. Enjoy your weekend.

    1. I still need to pull the trigger! We live in a fairly tight budget around here, and I just used my birthday $$ to buy a new console table, so the light will have to wait a little while longer. But soon!

  5. Love the old traditional looking lamps, they look good in any style of house. Great post, thanks for sharing.
