Rustic Candle Holder

30 Minutes
I'm not sure there's a name for my home decorating style. If you look at my Pinterest account, you'll see that I love all kinds of different styles. I love the homey feel of the "farmhouse" style, the colors and eclectic styles of "boho", and the warm of "rustic" styles. We are totally a form AND function home - you'll find we don't live in an uber chic modern home of sleek appliances and moody hues. My decorating philosophy is "if I like it, I use it"!

I've tried to incorporate more light outside on our porches and in our landscaping. We installed low voltage landscape lighting and added string lights around our patio. When the heat and humidity let up here in Houston and we are able to dine on our patio we also put out lanterns and candles to make a relaxing space to spend time in the evenings. I wanted to add some wall scones that make our space feel even more inviting.
