One beautiful advantage to the fall days getting shorter is the warm glow of candles in our homes. They give off a soft light and shimmer and make our homes and us look especially becoming! Come on in and see how I use candles in my fall decor!
On Decorating Tips And Tricks we are talking about HOW TO ORGANIZE YOUR PANTRY. If you have a kitchen then you will want to listen in. We have tips and tricks for having the most organized pantry or kitchen cupboards on your block!!!
Now let’s talk about candles, candlesticks, lanterns and more!
This year I put away the mercury glass and the silver and opted for organic wooden candlesticks and white chunky candles. This theme carried out through my living room, dining room, breakfast nook and family room.
I mismatched candlesticks but they all were wooden and a bit on the chunky side. I’m not into a matchy-matchy look and like mixing things, like candlesticks, up a bit. However, I do like my candles to be all the same color..more or less.
A big tray on the breakfast room table holds two candlesticks.
I love their turned shafts and interesting shapes.
Candles look wonderful grouped together. My favorite place to group them is on the dining room table! Even the centerpiece is really a lantern. It holds a little pedestal urn filled with fall brambles.
I used chippy white painted candlesticks and lightly stained wooden candlesticks as a part of this grouping. Even though the candlesticks are slender their height is dramatic. And their rustic look is a great juxtaposition to my more formal dining room.
I found these candlesticks at a local shop.
It’s important to create a pleasing visual pattern when grouping candles. Different heights and textures work together to do just that.
The round lanterns at the ends of the table repeat the metal roof of the middle lantern and have a lovely intricate pattern.
I chose a medium round lantern and put it on a pedestal and a larger one to sit on the table.
These candlesticks were so reasonably priced I got duplicate sets of each and added some to the family room mantel. The same candlesticks look totally different because of the way they were styled.
Lanterns are another favorite way to bring a soft glow to a fall night…
This lantern sits by my front door all year long. I just change the decor in the bottom of it.
Unconventional “lanterns” look so pretty paired together!
Candles and vignette go together!
How about you? Do you love the glow of candles in your fall home? I hope this has inspired you to get out your candlesticks, lanterns, and candles and light up the fall night!
