One of my favorite design elements in a home is charming outdoor lighting. I’ve added an outdoor lantern to the porch of almost every house we have owned in the past. So far in this house we haven’t changed any outdoor lighting, but these delightful ideas are inspiring me!
I know we just took a sudden jump inside after checking out some exteriors :), but don’t forget you can use outdoor lighting inside too! Many of the lights in my home are actually labeled as outdoor lighting, including my dining room light! See the source list for all of my lighting here!
