Eclectic Living Room with Fireplace and Cocktail Table
Even when reusing existing items, such as this cocktail table and antique rug, you can decorate the table in a way that modernizes the look. As this table shows, look for a pair of heavy leaded glass candleholders, which designers Lance Jackson and David Ecton with Parker Kennedy Living say you can find affordably priced at local vintage stores or on websites such as Etsy.com. Then add in a piece of cut glass (this one is high-end turquoise, but you can find others on a lower end) to contrast with the glass candlestick holders. The books were already in their homeowner's collection.
Don't settle for any old candles in your Christmas centerpiece. It's only a little extra effort to dress up some mismatched candlesticks with gold leaf. The gilded treatment ties the candlesticks together so the table looks warm and unified.
On HGTV's Flipping the Block, Amanda Marks and her boyfriend Curtis Goldin transformed the master bedroom using shabby chic furniture and accessories – including a sea glass vase and distressed candlesticks.
This dining room keeps its feel open and clean with furnishings and a light fixture that have graceful but simple lines. For warmth and softness, a trio of slim golden candlesticks and a round large mirror do the trick nicely.
An American country oak sideboard holds a collection of antique brass candlesticks, bowls and hand bells. A pair of Victorian tole lanterns, blue and white striped wallpaper and a Colonial painting add sophisticated country style to the space.
