We’ve come a long way in terms of innovation and technology, but it’s more than good to turn to the past if it means improving our homes, and as a result, our lives. Before my talk turns philosophical, I’m just going to say one word: candles.
With the electricity taking over, candles have gone from utilitarian to overlooked, but thankfully, with certain home and lifestyle trends as in the example with the Danish hygge, things have started taking a pleasant turn candle-wise.
What makes candles so special? First things first, visit a candle online shop specialises in, and you’re going to be amazed by the candle holders you’re going to come across, so let’s just say they have a decorative role in the interior.
A variety of styles of candle holders, a variety of candles, you can have fun styling up your home with different pairs of them, or mixing and matching modern, like brass candle holder, with traditional in the form of candle advent calendar, to get eclectic look.
Apart from the decorative flair, candles bring about that sense of cosiness with them that immediately makes a room feel warm and welcoming. Want to have a romantic dinner with your loved one? Let it be candle-lit. Even if you don’t like entertaining often, every now and then treat your family to and friends to some candle-lit meals.
The living room can become more homey with the simple addition of candles that fit in with the interior in colour. Want to get some time for yourself, pampering? Treat yourself to a candle-lit bath. Even if you don’t enjoy that, you can still count on them to infuse the bathroom interior with their magic, keeping them by towels, or by the mirror on a bath tray.
Let’s not forget the wide range of candle online shop offers can be scented too, and it’s this type that does so much for the ambiance, same way plants do. Pair them with flowers or use them on their own, candles can help you get rid of indoor odours instantly, like those in the mouldy kitchen for example.
Reading a book in your reading nook beside a candle? Who would have thought reading could get any better! Oh yes, candles make the ideal addition in the bedroom also, as the room meant for utmost relaxation and romance; scented candles equals sensuality!
Last but not least, the entry. You can count on a grand entrance when being greeted by the lovely sight and refreshing smell of candles.
