AN INTERIOR designer shared what she believed to be an underrated home decor tip.
She said she would never display new candles in the home without a burnt tip.
Brigette Muller (@hummusbirrd) shared the advice with over 240,000 TikTok followers.
“Do not display candles in your home if they’ve never been lit,” she said.
“My friend Bonnie, if she sees that you have a candle that hasn’t been lit, she will take the liberty of lighting that candle and blowing it out,” she said.
She brought her viewers to a brand new tapered candle: “It looks chic right but there’s something off about it,” she said.
She lit the candle and blew it out: “Boom, see how much better that looks?” she asked.
“I don’t care if you never light it again, as long as it has a black tip and a little bit of a melted top, that’s all you need.”
People took to the comments to share their thoughts on the tip.
“It’s called candle wicking! Things meant for a purpose but used as decoration can make a space feel uncomfortable,” said one commenter.
