Warm up the mood in your living environment by adding candles to your décor. They’re perfect for the cold winter months and continue to add beauty all year long.
Candles add soft light to a room and create a sense of serenity. Best of all, they add atmosphere and romance. Candles come in most any shape, size and color – from small votive candles to large, tall candles that can sit on the floor and become a focal point of a room.
Candles add interest to almost any room and can be displayed in many places in a room, including on:
- Dining tables
- Coffee tables and end tables
- Bathroom counters and around the bathtub
- Dressers and bureaus in the bedroom
- Window sills
- The inside of your fireplace in summer
Candles look especially nice when mixed with flowers, books, lanterns, or seashells to create an artistic vignette. It’s fun to update candles for holidays, too. Think about using candles in pairs or even larger groups, with candles of differing sizes and shapes.
Always make safety a priority when you decorate with candles. Make sure, candles are at a distance from anything that could be flammable and that they sit on a heat-resistant surface. And be vigilant about putting them out before you leave the house or go to bed.
