Bishop Design's Senior Interior Designer, Francesca Patti, has over 15 years of design experience. She has worked in destinations like Italy, China, and most recently, Dubai. Here she tells us her secrets for making the most of your home through candles.
Mood and well-being
Scented candles are simple yet powerful accessories. Placing them in your bathroom during a soothing bath can create a spa-like experience right in your own home. You can also position them on a coffee table next to your sofa while enjoying a glass of wine, helping you disconnect from the stresses of your daily routine. While they make beautiful design pieces, they also help us create moments for ourself.
Elevating your aesthetic
Choosing the right candle is a powerful tool for enhancing your space’s aesthetic. Not only do you infuse pleasant fragrances and soothing lighting into a room, but you also add a touch of elegance and sophistication. Consider candles with designs, colours, and scents that infuse your personal style with your living environment. This attention to detail can elevate your space to a whole new level of visual and sensory appeal.
To make the most of them, carefully consider where and how you position your candles. Key areas that are the most open allow the scent to disperse throughout your living space, for example, you can position candles in your kitchen to infuse the heart of your home with a welcoming aroma. Place them in the hallway to create an inviting entryway for guests, and adorn your main sitting room to set a cosy and inviting atmosphere for relaxation. By strategically placing candles in your living space and incorporating them into your daily routines, you can harness their effects to create your desired mood, reduce stress, and create serene and enjoyable atmosphere at home.
