What Houzz contributors are saying:
Light your entranceThere were numerous scenes in Victoria where the monarch is seen walking along lavishly candlelit hallways. What a job it must have been to keep all those elaborate wall-mounted candleholders and candelabras shiny and wax-free – but, oh, wasn’t it worth it? The warmth and cosiness candlelight brings is pretty magical.There is, however, a safer modern equivalent (weren’t you just poised for a royal fire storyline, watching all that flaming wax in close proximity to so many drapes and curtains?). How about lining your hallway or stairs with candles reassuringly encased inside hurricane lamps, like these. After dark, this would make for a wonderfully welcoming sight for dinner guests.
