There's nothing quite like candlelight to set a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere. Around the home candles lend a beautifully relaxed air to every room and set the scene for many different activities. Dinnertime and socialising can be made even more enjoyable, even magical, with the fire of a candle offering an illumination to the event.
And the latest forms of technology are also able to contribute to the power of the candle. Take a look at the Sara LED Mini Candles (above) for strong evidence of a brand new take on candlelight. Providing a battery powered candle complete with realistic flame flicker, the candles make an excellent centrepiece around the home.
Here at Homecolours we love the appearance of candles at home and the light and feeling they produce. Here are some selections from top flight design houses all enraptured by the power of the candle.
Pantone are undoubtedly experts whe it comes to colour coding, and they're no slouches when it comes to candle design as well! The above Scented Candle Medium Mars combines the power of the flame with a delicate scent of grapefruit and rosemary fragrance. Pantone have created a whole range of the candles with different scents and in different sizes. They all have a fantastic style and production in common, and are ideal for lighting up an inspiring flame.
The above Flick Flack Tea Light & Candlestick Holder by Leonardo is a modern way to bring the old romance of candlelight to the home. The design provides a unique method of holding a tea light or candle by simply turning it upside down. The holders have been produced using high quality glass and are just the thing to create a charming and relaxed feeling around the home. The holder is available in a variety of colours so you can create the perfect match for the room.
Another fragrant candle is offered by Maria Buytaert with the Fragranced Blossoming Candle 27cm Narcissus. The rosy pink coloured candle produces a pleasing mimosa and jasmine scent, with subtle tones of bergamot and tuberose adding to the overall effect. Hand crafted and with a burning time of up to 150 hours, the candle is ideal for making a strong impression, both to the nose and the eye.
