When it comes to interior decor, lighting plays a crucial role in setting the mood and ambience of a room. Among the many options available, fabric lanterns have gained popularity for their ability to add a touch of elegance and warmth to any space. However, selecting the right size of fabric lantern for your room can be a bit of a challenge. Fear not, as we're here to guide you through the process of choosing the perfect fabric lantern sizes to illuminate your living space with style and functionality.
01. Once you have chosen your desired size we recommend creating a cardboard template.
02. Trace out the diameter of the lantern (don't be afraid to patchwork materials lying around your home) things that work well would be cardboard or pattern paper. Anything that is able to hold a decent form whilst you suspend it within the desired space. Our recommendation is to always make two or more sizes.
03. The next part of this process is a two-man job. Once your template has been made, one person will hold it in place and the other will step back to visualise in order to confirm proportion, height & placement. We suggest holding it in the exact position that you intend for it to live in, that way your final decision will be accurate.
04. Play with proportion. By experimenting with varying sizes, you can create really interesting interiors, so keep an open mind when creating your templates and make a few size variations just to be safe!
Sibella’s Top Tip: One of her favourite ways to display the Dampier is to attach it flush to the ceiling, as in her home - most of the ceilings only go up about 2.4m. So if you’re in a similar situation, feel free to adopt this technique
There are many things to consider when planning out your lantern installation.
It is important to ask yourself...
The height of your ceiling can be important to consider when choosing fabric lantern sizes, however, we don’t always recommend sticking to tradition.
It’s often said that for smaller rooms with standard ceiling heights, 2.4 - 3m, opt for lanterns that are smaller in size. This can be true, however, we believe in breaking these rules as larger sizes create more visual interest and become the statement piece of your room.
When considering taller ceilings, (3m and above) you can comfortably accommodate larger lanterns that create a grander visual impact without feeling cramped.
In this instance, we recommend having two or more! Layer multiple lanterns across the room, creating a rich and detailed space that allows for varied flows of light to run through the room. Creating a more playful & whimsical atmosphere.

We whizzed down the back streets of Seminyak and the smaller the streets became the deeper we time travel into a Bali of a time gone-by...
This year, my dear friend and photographer; William Meppem and I captured the essence of this perfect boathouse, located in Newport, Sydney. The ideal spot to drop your anchor this holiday season.
I have dreamt of a boathouse escape for many years and all of my dreams have come true in a recent visit to a space that captures it all, The Salty Dog. This miniature house provides all of the nuances of boat building within its own minute space. Situated amongst the quintessential Sydney landscape of emerald green water and unique sandstone structures - surrounded by angophora gums.
With the extension of the dinghy & direct entrance to the water, this house evolves into an explorative landscape that extends beyond its petite footprint. If I were to create the ideal boathouse... This would be it.
