You know I’ve been coveting colored candles lately… they feel like a fun upgrade and interesting way to add personality to any vignette. I decided to round up some sculptural, colorful, and unique candles for this month’s Best of Etsy post! The majority of these candles feel like pieces of art, and there’s nothing I love more than burning a candle- even during the summer months. Something about the ambiance, fragrance, and flickering flame is so special… it feels like an easy way to elevate the everyday- it’s a ritual I’ll never quit at home. If you’re ready to upgrade a couple of your candles or are looking to fill some candleholders, click through for some serious Etsy eye candy!
Let’s dive right in with the roundup! It was fun to discover some new Etsy shops and artists. Shop my finds by clicking directly on each candle below…
My personal top picks include the following: #3 (timeless colored tapers), #6 (I love the fluted look), #7 (the beautiful twist), #12 (classic beeswax), and #18 (a fun shape). If you’re having trouble getting your taper candles to stay straight or feel secure in your candleholder, definitely grab a tin of this candle helper. It’s my go-to for candle styling!
Candles are an easy and inexpensive way to highlight an area or vignette in your home… the entryway, a tablescape set for entertaining, a bar, a mantel, etc. They’re one of those home accessories that seem to work well in any room in the house. It’s fun to see designers, artists, and interior enthusiasts having more fun with them lately!
I’ve also loved seeing interesting textural candles lately- the twisted, ribbed, and fluted options are a visual treat. I’m definitely going to grab some of those for the holidays this year. We carry The Floral Society brand, pictured above, in our Tuesday Made shop! You’ll have to let me know what colors or shapes you’re most attracted to, and I’ll look at ordering some.
I especially love seasonal candles or specific colors for special occasions or holidays. Remember my living room all decked out for the holidays last year? The pink candles on my limestone mantel were a definite favorite and an easy continuation of my holiday decor palette.
Wasn’t that roundup fun? I’d love to hear your favorites. Have you ever tried styling sculptural or colored candles in your home? I actually just added a couple colored tapered candles to the Tuesday Made shop! Be sure to check back tomorrow for a bonus Friday Noteworthy post. I’ve got updates, good reads, and links to share before I leave on vacation. What should I search for next month on Etsy? I’m toying with monogrammed decor, towels, or barley twist furniture. Do any of those sound intriguing to you?
