Candles could be the most underrated items in the world of home decor. Not only do they create a certain ambiance when lit (THINK:  romantic, relaxing, refreshing), their scents, if desired, can evoke passion, a sense of calm or high energy. The same with using color in candles.

While white candles will always be readily available at all price points and will remain the standard because of their ease of placement within your home and their obvious versatility, there is something to be said about bringing them into full effect with the addition of color.

Use a variety of colors and shapes to match your dining area’s contemporary or vintage design as a centerpiece on your dinner table or perhaps have a light fixture made from glistening, metallic or vivid, brightly contrasting color wax.

Reimagine your bathroom as a private sanctuary for your rare moments of peace away from the hecticness of life by replacing your neutral colored candles with soothing colors like rosy blush pink, sky blue or mint green.

Cluster them in ombre shades using a variety of heights. Select scents that are incredibly appealing and evoke emotion. Or go unscented. Get some stylish candle holders if you can't find candles in the colors that you desire. No matter where or how you decide to use candles, consider them in colors that give you an uplift or soothe your senses. They’ll create a warmer, more welcoming environment not only for those who you allow to visit your abode but for you and your family too!
