Current Obession: Chinese Silk Lanterns

Ever since I reposted images from Sophie Duruflé‘s Parisian apartment, I can’t stop obsessing over Chinese silk lanterns. So far, my online searches for antique lanterns have led me nowhere, with most of them already snatched up on marketplaces like Etsy. I did, however, come across Holy Kitch, an Australian based shop, that sells a variety of hand painted silk lanterns in colors like green, pink, orange and white. So beautiful, right? I can’t wait to hang these in Coco’s bedroom. And the hunt for antique lanterns, to incorporate into the bunch, continues . . .

  9. Hangers with nice colors that adorn the room with paintings and pentaannya also made remarkable. Thank you for your spare time because it had posted it.

    Did you ever find your gauze lanterns? There are two places that sell them in all sizes and colors. I’ve bought mine from both places. Pleased with my purchases.
