In Traditional Homes magazine's holiday issue 2009, a French inspired Christmas was featured. The photographer was Michael Partenio. Joni Webb of COTE DE TEXAS has now got me hooked on lanterns of all types and kinds! We see them outside flanking the front door.
Then in the library you can see the lantern relected in the mirror.
There in front of the French doors right outside the library is another beautiful lanturn.
If you look in the background you will see a lanturn sconce in the family room. And another to die for lanturn over island in the kitchen!
Below on the back porch, that acts as an outdoor family room, you can see a huge candle lanturn overhead.
Note the steep pitched roof and the lanturns on the outside of the home.
