...Transit umbra, lux permanet...
With the shorter days being an inevitable the one thing that cheers me up after a long day is coming home to the warmth and setting a cosy scene by lighting some candles to bring some bright into the gloomier evenings. Next have a fantastic range of beautiful home décor sets and have something for everyone; from fragranced patchouli candles adding an elegant waft to any room, to spiced candle jars which always remind me that the festive season is near and those Christmas markets, they even have vintage styled lanterns that are to die for!..
Medium Cream Ceramic Lantern £12 from Next
So pretty and understated this lantern holder has a beautiful heart shaped opening and is great to store those bigger pillar candles that need that extra safety support whilst looking ultra shabby chic cute!
Wild Orchid and Plum Fragranced Votives £10 from Next
These dainty yet perfectly sized candles smell of classic autumn/winter fragrances that consists of plum, berry, orchid blossoms and notes of amber and sandalwood that create that perfect British autumn/winter feel…they each have an individual pattern which makes them look perfect styled alone (for multiple separate usages) or within the set itself.
Festive Spice Fragranced Candle Jar £8 from Next
I love this Candle Jar, not only can it be lit to release the seasonal smell of juicy oranges and festive spices but when not in use it can sit nicely on your dresser/vanity table and act as an intricate trinket jar feature. Plus once all the candle wax is melted you can store whatever you want within this beautiful metallic red jar; but you will have to wait a while, as it alleges to burn up to 60hours! Now that is what I call lasting power.
Set of 3 Gold Tea-light Holders £10 from Next
Cannot think of anything more glamours to harbour tea-lights in, with the slightly stained golden glass and embellishments on the front of the holder you are guaranteed to add some extra sparkle to your evening. Perfect for aligning around a frosty window.
