There's nothing more classic than a collection of white taper candles scattered down a dining table, and there's something undeniably alluring about a modern and moody black candle or 17. But as 4pm sunsets and a bevy of evening-centric holidays announce the arrival of prime candlelight season, we've been spotting a new hue flickering across our Instagram feeds, Pinterest pages, and even in our own inspiring home tours.
Seeing as we're all about a non-traditional color story for holiday decorating, why not give these fresh hues a go on your table as French illustrator Celine Cholett did in the richly paneled dining area of her country home, or grouped in an impactful display that also shows off a mix-n-match collection of candlesticks like interiors guru Eddie Ross?
Buzzy English designer and Instagram Stories featuree Luke Edward Hall popped a tropical pair into an otherwise classical scene, for a playful, and highly Instagrammable vignette.
In her Nashville bungalow, stylist and all-around creative, Ruthie Lindsey carried a thoroughly modern hue from the dining room to her master bedroom vanity. This iteration even feels quite a bit like the blue that Pinterest can't get enough of.
Could you give up your fall-ish tones this Thursday and the upcoming onslaught of red and green for a bold, blue vision?
