As the weather gets cooler, I like to make my home cozier. Candles are a simple and beautiful way to bring in a little warmth.
Mercury glass is one of my favorite ways to brighten a room. Group them together in different shapes and sizes, and add a tea light for crystalline elegance!
And, you can never go wrong by just keeping things simple. These Vance Kitira candles come in all different sizes; when put together, they create a simple, elegant arrangement.
A few of our favorite scented candles
Of course, the visual beauty of candles is only half the charm. Scent can play a big role in the feeling of a room, and the mood of the people in it. It can bring back fond memories, or calm you after a stressful day. For me, a great scent can make all the difference in the atmosphere of a room. We wanted to share our personal favorites:
Annette chose Marseilles Fig by Lafco. Sweet, yet warm and subtle, a great scent for any time of year. Robbie also chose a Lafco scent, Feu de Bois. Great for a cold night, this woody, smokey scent makes you feel like cuddling by the fire.
Rick couldn’t choose just one! Here is a sampling of his favorites: Bergamot Tabacco and Burl Wood by Archipelago, Grand Hotel de Paris Linen Water by Zodax, and Spike Lavender by Lafco.
My favorite changes almost daily, but I am currently in love with Rosemary Eucalyptus by Lafco. It smells fresh, herbal, and sweetly invigorating. It is a smell that is joyful and happy, and full of memories.
