Travertine-style porcelain tile and clean white surfaces define this spa-like master bathroom. Here, the four-drawer scalloped chest -- a stunning storage unit for undergarments -- is topped with a collection of faux mercury-glass candlesticks. Nearby, a 2-foot-deep soaking tub offers a spa-style bathing experience. A picture window connects the space to the natural wooded outdoors of the property.
The large, open design of this rustic great room showcases beautiful wood details. Wrought-iron chandeliers with candlesticks hang above the long, wooden bar with ample cabinet storage. A row of barstools follows the curve of the bar, and a huge sofa creates separation in the room for the living area. A large stone fireplace surround brings a rough texture to the room.
Contemporary with some midcentury modern influence, this condo living room uses a neutral backdrop to allow the furnishings to be the statement of the space. A navy blue velvet sofa with a trio of different throw pillows becomes the focal point in the room, and two rugs layer together to ground the round coffee table decorated with pink flowers and candlesticks.
In the bedroom, designers blended the homeowner's collections with a more contemporary color palette. The headboard of this bed is made from two antique Chinese doors which are complemented by the tall antique candlestick and the Chinese statue that is featured in front of the window. These elements, combined with neutral walls and tan curtains give the space a light, yet still elegant feeling.
This eclectic neutral dining room features white and gold patterned chairs with gold burnished wood trim, surrounding a walnut table with a colorful arrangement of natural elements and stylish candlesticks. A unique brass chandelier draws the eye to the focal point of the room, while antique-finished mirrors pair with a white and gold buffet table and vintage accessories to add visual interest to the opposite wall.
What better way to celebrate summer than an outdoor fiesta? This table is dressed up with orange burlap layered over a red tablecloth for a bold, colorful touch. A large sombrero sits on a tall candlestick and acts as the table's centerpiece. The sombrero is filled with cupcakes topped with miniature Mexican flags for a festive look.
Hot glue the saucers to the candlesticks to make your mini stands. (To remove the hot glue, simply pull the pieces apart after use or use a product such as Goo Gone.) Secure frames to the mini stands using a dot of hot glue or glue dots.
Built-in bookcases often require a large amount of items to fill the shelves and could eat up a part of your budget. Instead, Atlanta designer Devon Garner collected the homeowner's existing hardback books and removed their covers. "We reuse those instead of going out and buying old books. I just repurpose a lot of stuff into bookcases," she says. She's also taken brass candlesticks and painted them gray.
This patterned chair against the fireplace is the perfect cozy spot to read or chill. The mask on the far right wall is from Tanzania, the wooden statue is from Ghana and the Picasso poster on the mantel is vintage. The brass candlesticks were a thrift store find.
This eclectic teal dining room from the HGTV Smart Home 2013 features an artistic vibe, pairing together a formal dining room table, industrial chandelier and wall-to-wall dark brown china closet with glass front cabinets. Bright blue glass candlesticks are used as a centerpiece, while a sheer curtain is used to divide the dining and living spaces.
A beautiful buffet fits perfectly in this nook. A black frame allows the gold drawers and cabinets to shine and highlights the lovely shape of the piece. White wainscoting is topped with gray wall paint with a textured look on the back wall. A decorative black framed mirror is mounted on the wall, and unique silver branch-like candlesticks top the buffet.
With antique French and English touches, traditional design is a picture of elegance in a room nicknamed “The Classic Corner” by designer Patricia McLean for a Home for the Holidays house in Atlanta. A French gilt mirror is surrounded by antique botanical prints by Abraham Munting and Dutch landscapes with gilt rope frames. The French gilded candlesticks were wired as table lamps to give height to the cream-painted chest.
A thin black pencil-like floral pattern wall embellishment adds design and style to this white bookshelf. The design is heavy enough to make an impact, but understated enough to not disrupt the quaint, artistic display on the shelving. In addition to books, candlesticks, a glass collage mirror and sculpture art bring some color to the space.
Outdoor dining is typically a casual affair—but it doesn’t have to be. Surprise and delight your guests by setting an outdoor table with all the hallmarks of an indoor dinner party: masses of candlesticks, beautiful florals, and your favorite crystal. Encourage lingering over after-dinner coffee by adding soft cushions to the seats, and providing throws for added warmth on chilly evenings.
To create a classic, inviting look in the entryway to this home, Joanna added black and white tile flooring to her design. To update that look and connect this space to the rest of the first floor, she carried the gray trim and wainscoting into this space. New, traditional light fixtures help to light the space, and a rustic hallway table adds a place to display candlesticks and fresh flowers, adding additional pieces of a classic touch.
In the dining room, Chip and Joanna, hosts of HGTV's Fixer Upper, brought in a new, modern chandelier, dining table and chairs. To update the space, they replaced the old wallpaper with beige paint, creating continuity between this space and the rest of the house. Above the buffet, an old window frame has had its panes replaced with mirrors to add light and color in the space, while silver candlesticks and green topiaries add a French Country touch.
Red, white and pink aren't just reserved for Valentine's Day dinners. To create this romantic centerpiece, arrange pink roses and white daisies, and surround them with homegrown creeping Jenny in a rustic urn. For a touch of intimacy and elegance, add silver candlesticks on either side of the arrangement. Design by Susan Herin of Between Naps on the Porch
