 I was inspired by this photo from Veranda Interiors which shows tall shiny silver candle pillars flanking each side of the stove/cooktop. I admired the look for some time and I recently saw something similar at Home Goods but I was bummed out when they only had one candle pillar available.
 
It has been a few weeks and I resigned myself to starting the search for the perfect candle pillars all over again. I went to Home Goods yesterday and saw they actually got more of the same candle pillars I fell in love with in. I measured the pillars and went home to measure my space to make sure it would work and went back today to pick them up.
 
As soon as I got home I began to clean the kitchen and wipe down the counter in preparation for my new kitchen accessories.
 
I think they are just what I needed. They add interest and somehow actually make the stainless, white cabinets, and especially my aqua accessories pop more. I think the shiny silver causes your eyes to bounce from the pillars themselves to the stainless to the shiny bowl and my Kitchen Aid creating movement.
 
I got them at Home Goods for $19.99 each. It is a little more than what I would normally like to pay, but they are tall and very beautiful. Once in a while I come across something that I can't live without and these were it! What do you think?

I think they look beautiful, and just think of all the hours you spend in your kitchen, you will enjoy them. Sometimes we just have to splurge and treat ourself.

About Me
I am a Southern California wife and mother of one. I am a simple person that enjoys home decor, baking, and spending time with my family. You can also find me on YouTube - House of Aqua: http://www.youtube.com/user/HouseOfAqua/videos?sort=dd&flow=list&page=1&view=0
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making a variety of ice cream, cookies, cakes, and candies. In recent years I have branched out by making new dinner recipes and found that I enjoy the challenge.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a daughter that loves to help me bake. We spend Christmas Eve in the kitchen making special cookies for Santa together.
My cooking triumphs
I consider tempering chocolate and making caramels a triumph. You either get it right or your wrong!
My cooking tragedies
I failed several times at trying to make fondant centers for truffles. I decided to put my candymaking book away for a while!
