Melbourne hasn’t really had a good run of summer this year – it’s now December and we’ve barely had a day over 30 degrees!
Lighting up some candles during gloomy evenings definitely added a touch of northern Christmas festivities last week… even if sunset wasn’t until 8.30pm each night!
I’ve never really been a big candle lover but with the starkness of our home’s colours, I figured candles would give some needed ambience particularly during winter. You can mix and match different sizes and types of candle as a setting or just display them singularly depending on the space.
This week, I’m particularly loving my new candle holders from work – made from natural American oak and designed for both long candles and tealights, they sit very high on my ‘proud of’ lists for this year. They are a testament to the belief that beautiful things take time!
