Global Style Inspiration: Moroccan Lantern Decor

June 14, 2010

When I was a kid, I would watch I Dream of Jeannie re-runs in the summer just for the short, 10-second glimpses of Jeannie's magic lantern living room. Hot pink cushions, purple sheers and bejeweled urns littered her modern genie pad and I was smitten. It's been at least 15 years since I have seen an episode, but that hasn't stopped me from dreaming up some lantern living spaces of my own.

Oversized, punched-metal Moroccan lanterns are unequivocal statement pieces in any room. I love how a lantern was added to this somewhat traditional/country British kitchen by Richard Smith.

I'm liking this modern globe-shaped lantern above a tiny, traditional tea tray.

living etc.

Pretty much every room in Ellen Pompeo's home is brilliant.

Paired with a mix of ikat throw pillows and a traditional Moroccan wedding coverlet on the wall. BTW, I highly suggest window shopping the selection of Moroccan goodies on My Marrakesh.
