I’m a firm believer in a candle’s ability to transform the ambience of a room. They make any space glow invitingly, and, at least for me, are always a gentler way to scent a space.
I’m always lighting them, but I have always felt that a beautiful candle deserves a beautiful way to present matches! Well, then I saw this match holder and striker (yes, you swipe a match across the riveted gold edge and it light – so chic!)(it was a ihavetohavethisbeautifulthing moment).
I first spotted it in gold, but then I found it in my favorite color: green. And, with the matching matches (haha), it’s such a unique and striking way to offer up an everyday object that’s often overlooked…
But I almost feel like it’s a little too pretty to use, so maybe I hide a less elegant packet of matches behind it for actual use, save these for guests?!
