I have to admit, my favorite room in the house is the kitchen. The kitchen is the focal point of my home due to its obvious proximity to food and its ability to bring everyone together. However, the living room comes in as a close second. The space has the opportunity to be warm and friendly for all sorts of gatherings. Luckily, I know two items that make both rooms feel more cozy and inviting by just being there. Can you guess what they are? Believe it or not, you may already have them in your space! They are a match made in heaven, two peas in a pod and just all around pretty – a beautiful candle and an oversized matchbox to compliment it.
Styling your home doesn’t have to be a chore and I love how large candles exert an effortless elegance even when they are not lit. Whether it is sitting on the kitchen island or placed on a coffee table tray, it really does not get much better than this. I’ve discovered that etúHOME has an unbelievable amount of candle scents and four of them come in their large candle size. The larger candles are in a small glass bowl that complement any décor. Even better, the candles omit their exquisite fragrance without lighting them, just as you are walking by. This is the main reason why I am obsessed with keeping them in the kitchen and living room – the two rooms my guests are most likely to be in when visiting.
My number one advice for decorating with candles, is that they have to be paired with a stylish best friend, an oversized matchbox. It’s amazing how the duo looks, adding dimension and practicality to your space. I love matchboxes that are colorful and fun. Whether they match my style, or even if they hang around to add a slight contrast to my decor, matches are a great accessory to have on hand. I really am a full advocate for candles, matches and a stack of books on a coffee table to complete the look. If you’re anything like me and believe that minimalist style is key, the simplistic décor is a must. While etúHOME has four large candles, they also offer four oversized matchboxes in various colors. So whether you’re wanting to add a candle and match duo to your space or you need the perfect housewarming gift for a friend, I highly recommend checking their collection out on your own!
