This tropical bedroom features a quaint sitting area in one corner. Two white slip-covered chairs sit in front of a built-in shelf, which holds several decorative storage baskets, candles and fresh flowers.
Architectural salvage can make for excellent tabletop decor. Here, a baluster crafted from an old Victorian staircase is given new life as a traditional candleholder. To outfit it for holding candles, a small wooden plaque is used as the footer and a pillar candle plate is added to the top.
Furnished with a comfortable sectional sofa and matching ottoman upholstered in neutral fabric, this covered patio is perfect for outdoor soirees. For evening entertaining, two sconces and candles with rattan holders provide illumination.
This classic transitional kitchen features a marble-topped square island, above which hangs an ornate black metal chandelier holding pillar candles. Green subway tile offsets the kitchen's crisp white cabinetry, creating a timless look.
Terrariums can hold succulent, sedums and other plants, as well as candles and mini sculptures. These Pierre terrariums from HomArt are made of leaded glass. The one on the bottom right is a dodecahedron-shaped terrarium.
Striped walls lend drama to this dining room featuring a glass-topped table and mirrored sideboard. A large framed mirror on the wall reflects long white drapes on the opposite wall and an ornate chandelier completes the look.
A charming nook sits just outside this transitional kitchen and is the perfect spot for the blue-gray buffet that matches the kitchen island. The kitchen's modern cabinets and glass pendant light pair well with the more traditional buffet and distressed mirror.
Oval terrariums hold greenery or small tealight candles. They have a bubble-like effect, whether displayed individually or as a group above a kitchen sink, or on the patio or in the garden. The terrariums are from HomArt.
Shower shelves provide decoration and storage in the shower. These stainless steel shelves are fit into a shower designed by Lori Carroll in Tucson, Ariz. They hold necessities like shampoo, conditioner and sponges on the inside of the shower and decor like candles on the outside.
This sophisticated master bedroom located in Paris is fit for royalty. Gold details throughout the room enrich the Victorian style and add shine to the neutral wall color and patterned wood flooring. Lining the furniture against the walls maximizes the available space and keeps the room feeling grandiose and open.
Practical shelving can also be stylish. Whether they hold essential toiletries or decorative candles that give the room a cozy glow, bathroom shelves are too often relegated to style afterthoughts. Incorporate shelving into your bathroom design, and you’ll find a needed shelf can also be nifty.
A bright white mantel displays a variety of green accessories, adding color to the space. An interesting ceramic vase houses white flowers while green glass candlesticks hold green taper candles. A vintage fabric screen decorates the adjacent wall.
