Oprah Was Right - Lighting IS Everything!

Sunday, October 21, 2012

Lighting IS everything.  I did a post on pink bathrooms recently, and you wonderful loyal readers, who couldn't think of anything else nice to say about pink, said "Everyone looks good in pink."  LOVE IT!!  Well, those comments made me think of candlelight because everyone looks good in it ... isn't it funny how blog posts come to be?  So here are some of my favorite candlelit rooms:

south shore decorating, decorating, interior decorating, interior design, design, interiors, best interior decorators, best interior designers, interior design ma, interior decorating ma, best design blogs, best interior design blogs, top decorating blogs, Stacy curran, living Rooms, dining rooms, family rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, childrens rooms, girls room, boys rooms, finished basements, room photos, bathrooms, master bedroom, black and white room, blue room, green rooms, white rooms

Martha Stewart and her team tick me off with their effortless creativity amaze me.  Look how cute the candles in the open shells are (below)!  I love this idea, and just may have to go to the beach to look for some big, perfectly formed, completely intact shells.  

And when I don't find any, I'll have to head on over to Michael's for them :)

Holy moly...this is gorgeous!  I was thinking this could be recreated in my own yard after a heavy rain when everything is wet and glistening.  Ok, it'll never happen, but it COULD:

In. Love.....

Again, I have no idea who has time for this...maybe it's for a movie or a magazine.... but what a gorgeous photo! I wonder if someone had to swim out and collect them all:

I wanted to include this one because I love how it is tied with twine....so simple and elegant:

I love this post. I think I'll need to light some candles at dinner, even though we're just having chicken soup.

Stacy, I love candles and my budget is always blown by the end of each month, especially this time of the year. I love the multi-votives zig-zagging down tables, so simple and so beautiful. xx's

I love the ambience candles create. Whenever I'm home I always have a candle burning. I can't wait to use the fireplace when it gets a little cooler outside.

Gorgeous post!!! I love candlelight and agree nothing makes one glow quite like the soft lighting that candlelight offers. Every single picture is breathtaking!

Beautiful images, Stacy! It reminds me that I need to add candlelight more often to my home, not just at holidays or when company is coming. Thanks for the inspiration.
