Dining Room: Use All the Candlesticks

When it comes to candlesticks, Sherry Petersik of the home blog Young House Love suggests taking a "more is more" approach. Instead of decorating your dining room table with just two or three candlesticks, put six, eight or even 10 down the center of a table for a dramatic effect. Place the candlesticks (they can be matching or all different) equidistantly along the length of the table for a balanced look.
