In an effort to live with more intention, I’m starting a new series on the blog. My hope is to inspire and educate, in a way that feels approachable. We’re calling this little series, living simple. I’ll be sharing everything from mindful purchases to grounding routines, along with anecdotes on being intentional with your time and energy. Think: sustainable decor, feel-good items, and anything else under the repertoire of living consciously. These excerpts are intended for your well-being and for the longevity of the planet, too.
I’ve recently become enamored with candlestick holders. They’re timeless, practical, and make for beautiful tablescapes. They’re both simple and vintage in decor, providing either a focal point or subtle backdrop (especially during these colder months). Depending on your style, there are so many designs to choose from. A few of my favorites: this from Urban Outfitters, this from Threve Mercantile, and this from Crate&Barrel. Our candlestick holder lives on the corner of our wooden kitchen island, a handmade piece I found on Etsy. On rotation, I use a beeswax or soy-based candlestick. You can read more about why, here.
Part of living simple means to declutter — to make meaningful purchases and keep purposeful items in your home. A candlestick holder, in many ways, is both a meaningful purchase and a purposeful item. It brings light, style, and peace to any space.
