Back in December folks were ohhing and ahhing over Aerin Lauder’s home in the December issue of (the much missed) House and Garden. I seem to remember a bit of discussion about the choice of blue candles in the dining room. Hmmm…..blue. I’m usually an all white girl when it comes to candles, but could see that, for the image at least, white would not be right.
Courtesy of Grace Ormande Wedding Style, the slate grey tapers preferred by Gambrel. I have to say, I can see the appeal. I am drawn to the crispness of the white, but the grey is more subtle. It does not become the focal point. Graceful and lovely, it does the job without screaming for attention. I need to listen to Jennifer; this color deserves a second look.
