When it comes to the perfect accessory for any room, you can’t go wrong with candles. They give off beautiful atmospheric candlelight and ambience, and make ideal gifts for any occasion – housewarmings, birthdays, anniversaries and more.
To appeal to more than just the sense of sight, the best type are scented candles, since they also bring sumptuous fragrance to your home. The aroma you choose is, of course, a deeply personal preference as fragrance has such an emotional component to it. But certain scents do evoke certain atmospheres, so go according to what feel you want to encourage in a room. For a sense of romance, rose, peony, and jasmine work well. Wanting something more homely? Go with pumpkin spice, pine or bergamot. If an uplifting mood is what you’re after, scented candles with citrus scents are the way to go. Woody scents, such as cedarwood or rosewood, will give off a sense of rustic comfort.
Then there are the accessories. For example, the classic candle holder comes in so many varieties today, you’re spoilt for choice. Votives work well for short candles. They’re not large, but are longer than the short tea-light holders, so there’s generally a longer burn time on the candles. Their larger size also means they make more of an impact and often have pretty designs on the sides. These designs can reflect the aesthetic of your luxury furniture in Dubai.
Another great gift idea is a candle snuffer, to extinguish a candle`s wick quickly so that the wick doesn`t develop that ugly black ball on the top that — when you next light it — smokes up the whole room.
Holding an outdoor party? Suitable options include hurricane lamps and lanterns, for an effect evocative of times gone by. What’s great about them is that they work inside and outside. Got a patio or outdoor dining area? Add some to enjoy magical evenings out in the fresh air.
