Candles, and plants offer multiple benifts as accessories to a room. Candles always add a feeling of brightness, warmth and color, especially if they are placed in colorful holders, or stained glass that reflects the colors. With plants and other organic natural materials, they also add color or become a design element, but even more so, they can really soften an area that is surrounded by hard cold materials such as wood, stone or granite. All accessories in the Park family home were provided by Ikea for a special promotional episode of HGTV's Cousins on Call.
