ILLUME Holiday Giveaway!
Recently I received an early Christmas gift. A package of goodies from my favorite place for home fragrances, ILLUME. I've you've ever walked into an Anthropologie store and wondered why it smells so amazing, it's all thanks to Illume and their wonderful candles. In beautiful scents like sage, vanilla, and cedarwood, Illume has plenty of fragrances that will help you get your home ready for the holidays. Here are some tips on how to use ILLUME candles in your holiday decor as well as a wonderful giveaway to help you get started!
ILLUME Tip: Fragrance is one of the key elements in accessorizing a home, and a unique strategy for instantly setting a mood.
I love to light my Woodfire Holloway Ceramic cande to set the mood for the holidays. It's in a beautiful ceramic container that looks amazing on the mantel, and has an earthy scent with traces of cedarwood and warm vanilla.
ILLUME Tip: Combined with accent pillows, rugs, artwork and a throw, fragrance enriches the ambiance of a room, adds personality and creates interest.
Something as simple as a candle can be a beautiful decorative piece in your decor. I really love this Juniper Jade Paint Tin Candle. It features a soy candle in a colorful tin that can fit into your room's color palette.
ILLUME Tip: Candles are the icing on the cake and should look as beautiful as they smell.
Candles in metallics like this Twilight Vanilla Fireside Candle are great for creating a luxe look, and a memorable smell for the season.
