kaarsKoker: Dutch for "Candle Sleeve"

A recent email led me to kaarsKoker, a new company that produces a wide variety of candle sleeves for $12-$25 a pair. What a great way to transform a wall sconce or chandelier. I went to check out the site and found these:

Blue Fretwork Sleeve

Blue Green Marble Sleeve

Gold Silver Cone Sleeve

Solid Yellow Sleeve

Red Gold Clover Sleeve

A clever idea to add a little more detail to a room, and we all know God is in the details. Head on over here to check out all of the options! There are many more, including skulls, polka dots, stripes, and some very "David Hicks" patterns.

That's where I went wrong....I'd heard the "Devil is in the Details". But....I love the finishing touches on anything. These could be fun for entertaining depending on price. Charming as always...and thank you for the source. Ginny

Hi Pamela! I thought some of these were pretty nice!

Hi Ginny! Hahaha! You may be right...could very well be the Devil! And the gal that emailed me thought the same thing about changing them out for events. They even have a seasonal or holiday section on the website.

I have to say, those scare me a little. Katie- how did your daughter's room turn out? I'm dying to see it. I'm a pink girl, too!

katiedid said...

Hello gorgeous yourself!
Haha! Perfect for the teen girls room!

katiedid said...

Hi VV! I bet your fabulous place would be a perfect place for a pair of these!

Hi Brilliant...I thought so too. Some of them are really quite handsome!

Hi Jennifer!
I could see you with a pair of marbelized paper sleeves. Some look like paper from expensive book linings I think!

katiedid said...

Hello anon!
Haha! I think they can get a little over the top, but I really liked some of them.

And my daughter's room is definiteley coming along! I will be posting as soon as I get the dresser I ordered, and her mirror. BUT! I will try and get an "update post" done very soon. We have finished the painting and put together her IKEA bed (THAT was quite a project!) And her Bungalow 5 nightstands are in. So we are getting there! Still have draperies to hang (maybe this weekend.) Stay tuned! :)

love the skull and cross bones, dim the lights shall we!
another lightbulb just went off, why didn't I think of that.

Fantastic. I just covered some in a black and cream toile wallpaper on a store chandelier. Not nearly as interesting as those on this website. Great headsup!

This was a brilliant post! You know what else I wish I could find? Candle sleeves that look like real candles, with the drips and everything but well done. I once owned a vintage chandelier which had 1930s candle sleeves that looked EXACTLY like dripping candles.
