Rustic Lodge - Candles and Diffusers

Just about everybody knows it’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness, and that is something the originators of Rustic Lodge style most certainly knew. Given the fact that rural America was effectively off the grid until FDR’s New Deal made wide reaching public utilities a reality, candles and oil lamps were a way of life for thousands. Even after the power was turned on, the simple beauty, charm and reliability of candle light continued to illuminate many a ranch, lake house and cabin. Large open spaces out on the range or nestled next to large bodies of water can mean breezy and even windy nights for inhabitants of Rustic Lodge style homes, making candle accessories like hurricane lanterns essential items. While times have changed and electric lights are always available with a generator on hand, candlelight still reigns supreme for creating a warm atmosphere.
