If you are looking to create a magical setting in your home, there is no better way than using candles. Whether it’s for a special dinner party, romantic evening or to provide yourself with some relaxation time, lighting a candle works wonders.
In the past, candles were used to provide light. Nowadays they are used much more to create ambience. There is nothing better than the flickering light of a candle to completely change the mood in a room. Think cosy, atmospheric and dreamy and a softness that no other light can replicate. Guest will immediately feel welcomed, knowing that you have made a special effort to prepare a setting for them.
Scented candles add another dimension to the area being lit. They provide a wonderful way of adding a gentle fragrance to your home. Unlike the chemically-based air fresheners that pump unpleasant substances into the air, the best candles use a range of tantalising naturally-based perfumes to flood the senses. If you like the idea of recreating memories of days gone by and the aroma of grandma’s kitchen, then Lemon Drizzle Cake and Apple Crumble from this range will suit perfectly.
And don’t think that candles can only be used once the sun goes down. Light them up at any time of day, in shady nooks or on carefully placed side tables. Place in front of a mirror and you get double the glow plus the opportunity to watch as the tiny flame flickers and jumps as the air around it moves.
Use inside and out
If you want to add colour to your flame, place your candles in coloured glass pots. Alternatively, you can purchase coloured candles to match your room. In the bathroom, they create a spa-like setting, in the dining room, a special restaurant vibe and in the garden a truly magical fairy tale atmosphere. Use them outdoors to illuminate your prettiest flowers and hang from trees in string-tied glass jars to give a Midsummer Night’s Dream feel, so much so that you will be expecting fairies to peep from behind the bushes.
Create a truly magical setting
When you buy quality candles, they can conjure up any type of magical setting that comes to mind. All it takes from you is plenty of imagination and a little bit of time spent placing them in suitable locations. The stunning candles from Juliette At Home not only look wonderful when placed in your own home environment but also make fantastic gifts. Hand-poured, they are created using a mix of natural wax and fine fragrances. The end result is a candle that lights up the room in so many ways. You have the wonderful aroma of the perfume, the gentle glow from the burning of the natural wax and the pretty ceramic jar adding a touch of vintage chic to your chosen location. Spread the aroma throughout each room by using candles of the same perfume.
So turn down the lights, choose your favourite candles and transform your home into a truly magical setting.
