Radhika Arora, Product Developer & Stylist at Rad Living, one of our favourite candle brands on LBB, knows about decorating your home with candles. Aside from making a room smell incredible, a candle has become an essential decorative element for many homes. With so many different scents and styles, there are endless possibilities to blend the candles in almost every aesthetic. Also, the most interesting thing about them is the certain softness and vibe they bring into any space. Adding candles to every room of the house can create an entirely refreshing experience as different scents are in play as one enters each room. Here are eight ways you can decorate your home with candles.
Radhika Arora Of Rad Living Tells Us How To Decorate Your Home With Candles
Citrusy Candles In The Kitchen
When decorating the kitchen with candles, it is always good to match them with the colour scheme of your kitchen. We advise you to go with neutral hued candles because they can blend easily with your interiors. Also, make sure the candles are smaller in size to be scattered throughout the kitchen. Scents that work best for the kitchen are lemon, orange or anything citrus that keeps the energy fresh throughout.

Decorating Your Living Room
Decorating your living room with multiple small or big candles is a great way to bring in contrasting colours and fill your room with scents that are pleasing to the senses. They make for a stunning decoration element and are infused with ever so beautiful fragrances. You can also set them up on a coffee table with some flowers and a stack of your favourite books or magazines.

Centrepiece Candles For Your Dining Table
The most common way of using candles is to make them the centrepiece of your dining table. They are warm and welcoming and provide wonderful lighting for dinners. They can also act as the perfect accent pieces for your space. You can use any of Rad Living's pillar candles, put them over a candle stand and make a beautiful setting for your dinner table.

Candles In The Bedroom
Candles and bedrooms both are not only meant for relaxation but also for romance and passion, which makes the candle an essential part of your bedroom. Place it on your bedside table or create a little corner in your bedroom to set the mood. Radhika's personal recommendations are the Netflix and Chill candle from the Truth Bomb collection or the Heer candle. You can also choose pillar candles for your bedroom as they have a good cold scent throw and will keep your room smelling fresh all day long.
Floral Scented Candles For The Bathroom
There’s nothing more relaxing than taking a long hot/cold shower with a fresh and floral scented candle lit in your bathroom. Place a candle on a shelf or near the bathroom sink along some plants to give your bathroom a spa-like feel. Radhika recommends Rad Living's Bathroom Singers candle or FLY #14 candle.

At The Vanity Table
It is essential to calm your senses before you start your makeup so that you don’t panic over having a perfect winged eyeliner and placing a candle on your vanity table can do just that. Check out the ‘Makeup Hoarders’ candle or if you are a fan of being a little extra then the candles from the Aphrodite’s Wish collection would be the best.
Scented Candles When You Have Guests Over
For a LIT night, scented candles can be a great way to set up the bar, especially if you have guests coming over! They add a very subtle yet fun element to the bar corner or the bar area! Radhika's personal favourites would be sparkling mandarin scented FLY #4 or maybe a “Chandni’ candle to bring some bling to your bar.
Candles For Your Work Desk
Having a candle on your work desk can help increase your focus and productivity. The scents from the candle will keep you energised all day long and make sure that you don’t fall asleep between your meetings or while studying. Container candles and pillar candles can both work but it depends on where you’re placing your candle setup. Check out the cappuccino-scented Work From Home candle.
