Candles: Decorating Your Home with Candles
Packed with innovative and stylish ideas, Candles offers a wealth of practical ways to enhance your home with candlelight - from twinkling tea-lights scattered along the mantelpiece to large, cream pillar candles placed on every surface in your bedroom. Sculptural blocks of wax arranged in an unused fireplace are a simple substitute for a real fire, and floating candles in a bowl of water - complete with beach pebbles, exotic flower heads or rose petals - make a beautiful, contemporary table centrepiece. The mood-enhancing properties of aromatherapy candles and their ability to work on the mind - relaxing, calming or stimulating - have long been recognized, and these are an integral part of Candles. Light a candle scented with ylang ylang and sandalwood to help you relax at the end of a hard day; or infuse the hallway with a combination of warming spicy aromas, such as orange, vanilla and cinnamon, to create a welcoming environment; alternatively, rose, lavender and jasmine make a heady, sensuous blend that is ideal for the boudoir. 'Outdoors', Paula Woods takes you on a journey around the home, offering creative styling ideas for every room. With atmospheric photographs, a chapter on candlemaking and over 20 easy-to-achieve projects by top designer Petra Boase. Candles will inspire you to bring your home alive with candlelight.
