Hiding Paper Lantern Cords

Good Questions

Q: I want to hang paper lanterns in the corner of a room, like in this lovely picture I found at House of Turquoise. However, I'd also like to use the lanterns for lighting. Any ideas on how to neatly hide 3-5 cords on the ceiling and against the wall? Is it a lost cause??? Thanks!

Editor: I think it goes without saying that your cords should be painted the same color as your ceiling, but beyond that I'm at a loss. Readers, what great ideas do you have?
