There's something so calming about candles. As soon as you strike a match and light the wick, your space is instantly transformed into a sanctuary of serenity. The warm, mesmerizing flame comforts you while the soothing aroma fills your personal haven with a captivating fragrance. Beyond the amazing effect candles have on our mood, they also serve as key decorative accents that can totally change the feeling of a room. Adding a jar candle to your favorite reading nook creates a relaxed look, while adding taper or pillar candles to a dining room can make it appear more sophisticated and formal.
And a quick announcement for all candle lovers: candle care and accessories are just as important as the candles themselves. For example, wick cutters make for a cleaner burn and glass votives allow the light to fully illuminate the space. So if you're like us and have something of a candle obsession (and, let's be honest, who doesn't, right?), here are 10 essential pieces of accouterment to feed your decorative addiction.
