Have you noticed that the addition of just one thing in your home can set off a domino effect of change? With the addition of a new dresser, this meant some rearranging of furniture. A dresser that had formally been in the bedroom was moved out in a hallway. This hallway is a challenging space as it has no windows so there is no source of natural light. Any sort of decor attempt tends to get lost in the gloom. Whatever is placed there needs to be able to shine in the dark. As well, I do prefer a sense of uncluttered calm. I have to say that the blank canvas that was the dresser top was a little unnerving. So much space! So much choice! What to do? Luckily I had recently thrifted four Festivo candle holders which had been on my wish list for a while. So on one corner, they went.
To thrift four of these candleholders at once was a wonderful experience. It was the first time I had ever held one in my hands. They are wonderfully heavy and the textured surface gives the glass a surprisingly tactile feel. Even though I loved the simplicity of the grouping of twinkly glass candleholders and the subtle way they echoed the crystal knobs of the dresser, I thought that it all looked a little too spartan. Then this weekend, I thrifted a little white ceramic lamp.
It is always evening in that hallway and, when turned on, this little fellow gives the space a sense of intimacy.
