When it comes to curb appeal, outdoor lighting is a great way to give your home’s façade a face lift. We love the way a lantern in an unusual shape or color can set your home apart from every other home on the block. We rounded up a few of our favorites.

It sounded like a fun challenge though, and it was the type of project we hadn’t tackled before, so we threw our hats in the ring! When we were assigned the front yard, we were really excited and anxious all at the same time. Last year, we were knee-deep in a huge kitchen renovation, and the year before, we were just moving in. This year is the first year we’ll have ever decorated the front yard for Christmas.
