Make a statement at your front door with a lantern on a chain or flush mounted. It’s a lovely way to welcome you home and to invite your guests into your home. Choose something in a metal to blend with your door frames perhaps, or your metal door furniture. Why not consider the inside of your home when making this selection, looking at the décor in the hall perhaps and taking inspiration from there, giving a clue to the style that awaits inside.
Insider Tip! ALL external lighting needs maintenance, rub the metal twice a year to clean off any incipient bloom of corrosion. WD40 and similar brands work really well for this. Beeswax and Danish oil too.
