Two things I’m good at: lighting things on fire and finding pretty trinkets and baubles. Highly appropriate then, that I should stumble across these beautiful candle holders. I’ve been fancying them everywhere in the house. The all white bathroom… the bedside tables… on the deck this summer… how many is too many?
I’ll admit, historically, I’ve been adverse to tea light holders. When I think of tea lights, I am whisked back in time to that first basement apartment in the summer of 1997. The roommate who played Sarah McLachlan and Portishead songs all the time, the dot matrix printer (which was archaic even then) that ruined all my university papers, the ubiquitous ugly tea light holders… not good memories. And yet, here I find myself falling in love with Louise Roe’s copper tea light holders. It’s like I have a new lease on life!
I love modern designs made in classic, old world materials. The way I decorate my home, the clothes in my closet, everything is a juxtaposition between the old and the new. I love vintage, and yet I’m so attracted to the sleek and new. These candle holders satisfy both of those leanings. For those of you who prefer a cooler tone, they have a gunmetal version too. Simply gorgeous!
