One thing you will find all over my home is vignettes of things that I hold sacred. I call these my Sacred Spaces or Altars, as many others call them. These are spaces that I change often, either with the season, the month, or sometimes just an emotion or particular period I am going through. The spaces reflect pieces of myself as I create them as a reflection of what I am feeling at the moment.
These are spaces that I return to often as I work through inner parts of myself. I am very self reflective and am continually on a path of self discovery and growth through spirit. These spaces welcome and cultivate that.
I almost always have a candle or two when I create these spaces. I love the intimacy candlelight holds. When I saw these little unique candle holders I knew they would be perfect. I love watching the way light reflects off of surfaces, and this green ceramic candle holder is very cool for that. Reminds me of the cosmos. I also love the beautiful shade of green that it is. The designer Veny Lydiawati says she wanted to create “a lighting atmosphere that not only creates a beautiful ambiance, but that is also comfortable to people’s touch and enlightens their life”, and she has done just that.
I also fell in love with these wooden leaf motif tea light holders. I love wood, leaves and unique candle holders, so they were quite a match. They came as a set, so I used one for tea lights and one for crystals. I always enjoy finding ways to use decor for more than its original intended use.
Speaking of beautiful wooden candle holders, I just fell in love with these new paisley shaped ones. To me home decor is so much more than just decor. I fill my spaces with things that have meaning, personal momentos, and things that bring my inner state to a more peaceful place. Having these handmade candle holders illuminate my sacred spaces definitely warms my heart.
