should you be looking for some affordable lighting options that make a huge impact you might just consider the paper lantern, and in my opinion the bigger the better! the japanese-inspired paper lantern has been around forever and can really light up a room in more ways than just their lovely, luminous glow. if you take a look at many of these rooms, you’ll see how dramatic their look is, and at a relatively low investment. these origami-inspired lanterns, for instance, are under twenty bucks! add this Gold Electrical Cord Swag Kit (also under $20) and you’ve got a pretty dynamic look for very little money. after all, it’s only a paper moon.

  1. Today’s post really got to me. The gratitude for your new back yard is the mantra. We also just moved – from a small bay area apartment with no yard to a Los Angeles bungalow with a backyard and trees. Our GRATITUDE is immense for this patch of open space and wild sky.
