All your outdoor space needs is one of these chic lanterns to help keep you going all night.
It’s very, very hot and while sleeping and functioning might be near enough impossible, the balmy climes lend themselves perfectly to mellow evenings which work perfectly with an Aperol (with a cohort of funky-shaped cubes of ice) and some form of outdoor space.
If you’re lucky enough to have your own patch of grass, courtyard or concrete, then what you might need in order to prolong the beauty of these dreamy al fresco evenings is an outdoor lantern, which you can either string along some form of foliage or, in case you’re not much of a plant parent, a standalone lantern instead.
The point is to illuminate the space that you have so you can continue to read or chat, or whatever you like to do after hours. These are some of our favourite outdoor lanterns to light up your space.
