Lately, I’ve been obsessed with the details of a room. You know — all the little things that turn it from a house into a home. Without them, we’d be faced with blank tabletops, empty dressers and no sense of personality. As I move from room to room throughout my home, I’m happy to say we see these little touches of personality everywhere. But in the dining room, it is the same “personality” my husband I have had since we got married nearly 7 years ago. The same boring candlesticks and candles we’ve been using for as long as I can remember. You can see them used here on our Thanksgiving table. I think it’s time for an upgrade.
These Solano Candle Holders are fun and funky, and the black-brown color will easily fit into any decor or color scheme we might choose in the next 7 years. I can also imagine them mixed and matched with the candle holders we already have for a really eclectic display, maybe inside a tray or sitting inside an ornate mirror. The varying heights also give them depth, unlike the four we have now, which are all the same height.
They are a little pricey, but it really doesn’t seem like a lot to pay for something we can likely use for years to come. And if paired with a nice bowl similarly made of recycled materials, we’d have the makings of a beautiful tablescape — and a place to put our fruit 🙂 I’m torn between the recycled wire bowl, which has a silvery finish with a hint of gold, and the recycled metal paddle bowls, which resemble a bird’s nest. I’m definitely leaning toward the latter, particularly because it is available in several sizes, so I could mix and match.
