When I spotted this sculptural display in fashion designer Vanessa Bruno's Paris apartment, I was inspired to rush over to Ikea and buy up some rice-paper lanterns.

Bruno's apartment features the perfect balance of a very French masculin/feminin style with a mix of high and low elements. Replicate the low-cost look by hanging up a set four lanterns.

N.B.: We considered whether it would be possible to add lighting to the lanterns, but we couldn't locate a cord with four bulbs spaced at the right intervals; do let us know if you have any ideas.
