Wall Candle Holders

Fall is around the corner and the air is getting crisper and the days shorter. Candles are nice any time of year, but I especially like them in the fall and winter, a little bit of cozy comfort in all that darkness and coldness. And they’re perfect when you have company over too. Not only does a dinner party solely lit by candles feel intimate and warm, candle light is also very flattering to everybody’s appearance. Who doesn’t like that?

I have about 2 million tabletop candle holders (a slight exaggeration) so in order to fit more candles in every room, I am now looking to fit some into my other wall decor. Since I prefer minimalistic design in plain colors, I am looking in Sweden (again!).

Scandinavia, by the way, is a great source for anything that has to do with candles, because everybody uses them everywhere there all winter long – in staircases leading up to shops, in ALL restaurants and cafes, on the streets – everywhere. Stockholm is actually quite a magical place in December when it gets dark around 3pm and everybody lights their candles (I imagine Copenhagen, Helsinki and Oslo are as well, but I now Stockholm is first hand).

Here are a few recent wall candle holder finds (I had a long week, so it’s mostly eye candy):

So simple and so cute, this metal heart with two crystals looks like something you could make yourself (if you’re a handy person).

This stainless steel candle holder has a really pretty oriental pattern and I love the simplicity of it.

A tad more ornate, this adorable and fun little zinc mini-castle is from Danish Udense

I seem to be drawn to metal wall candle holders… here is yet another one, this time in rusty sheet metal

And finally, three super simple designs in metal and glass for tea lights. Imagine how cute a whole bunch of these would look on the wall, either in a row or grouped together in a random pattern. Adorable.
