How to prepare for the darker autumn winter nights and create a cosy warm home

As the long, lazy days of summer gradually give way to the crisp and enchanting embrace of autumn, there's a palpable shift in the air. The sunlight takes on a warm, golden hue, leaves begin to trade their lush greens for fiery reds and oranges, and the days gradually grow shorter. As nature's rhythm transitions into a quieter and more introspective melody, it's the perfect time to embrace the beauty of the changing seasons. 

One way to create a warm and inviting ambiance that resonates with the autumnal spirit by incorporating candle holders into your decor. In this post, we'll explore the magic of shorter days and how candle holders can become the perfect companions to enhance your autumn experience, as well as the different types of candle holders such as Hurricanes, which are larger vase-like candle holders that we stock at

The Magic of Shorter Days: Autumn brings with it a unique charm as the days grow shorter and the nights longer. The dwindling daylight offers a gentle reminder to slow down and relish in life's simple pleasures. It's during this time that we find solace in the warmth of our homes, surrounded by loved ones and the comforts of a cosy environment. As the sun dips below the horizon earlier each day, it encourages us to turn inward, reflect, and find moments of tranquillity amidst the changing world around us.

Candle Holders: Capturing the Essence of Autumn: Candle holders are more than just functional pieces of decor; they're vessels of light and warmth that hold the power to transform any space. During autumn, when the evenings grow darker sooner, candle holders take on a new significance. They become our companions in creating an atmosphere of intimacy and nostalgia, reminiscent of crackling fires and whispered stories. Our favourite type of candle holder is the Hurricane, which is a larger vase that can hold large candle designs as well as lift your interior space with a beautiful unique centrepiece that makes an interior space more cosy. 

Choosing the Right Candle Holders: When selecting candle holders for the autumn season, consider designs that resonate with the natural beauty of this time of year. Rustic wooden candle holders, metallic pieces with intricate leaf patterns, or even vintage glass holders can perfectly capture the essence of autumn. The flickering candlelight against the backdrop of these holders creates a mesmerising play of shadows, lending depth and character to your living spaces.

Creating a Cosy Ambiance: Placing candle holders strategically around your home can instantly infuse it with a cosy and inviting ambiance. Arrange them on your dining table for intimate dinners, line them along your window sills to cast gentle glows into the night, or create a focal point on your mantelpiece to draw the eye. By mixing and matching different sizes and styles, you can create a unique tableau that resonates with your personal style and enhances the autumnal charm.

Embracing Hygge: The Danish concept of "hygge" captures the essence of finding comfort and contentment in life's simplest pleasures. Candle holders and the warm, soft light they emit align perfectly with this philosophy. Embrace hygge this autumn by adorning your space with candle holders and indulging in moments of tranquillity, whether it's reading a book, sipping a cup of tea, or sharing stories with loved ones.
