When the seasons change to spring and summer, I like to transition our house from warm and cozy to light and airy, tucking away heavy throws and decluttering like a madwoman. Yet, there’s something so tranquil, no matter the time of year, about the soft glow from the fireplace in the evening. We have our chimney swept and checked every year, so I take advantage of the clean slate to take out the andirons and log grate, and swap for a simple, wrought iron candelabra for pillar candles. The best case scenario is windows open, summer thunderstorm and glowing candlelight. Bliss.
