I received the cutest striped candlesticks from Hattan Home a few weeks ago. Not only were they packaged so festively, but they are even cuter in person than I anticipated. I selected the wasabi green + mint because I knew those were colors I'm focusing on adding to our downstairs. These striped tapers are a fun update on the traditional, pretty much right up my alley.
I had so much fun styling with them! I added them to the family room, living room, and dining room. I think they look good everywhere but I'm guessing they'll stay in the dining room for a while. If Wells ever goes back to school (really another snow day today) I might even try them out in the kitchen. Because they are gorgeous!
A mantle or buffet feels the most traditional use for candlesticks with taper candles. I like the fresh feel the stripes give to an other wise traditional area. And it sneaks in some color without being all in your face, which y'all know I like.
