It's no secret that Zara Home consistently delivers some of our favourite homeware collections each and every season, but this summer-ready candle collection with Heimat Atlántica might just be our favourite yet. 

Whether you're one to keep up with this year's interior design trends or not, adding fun and seasonal accessories to your home is a great way of refreshing a space without changing everything. And what better way to make your living room look expensive than adding some stunning ornate candle holders? 

The collection, which launched just last month at Zara Home has been received extremely well on the brand's social accounts and we can definitely see why. 

This week's must-have: Zara Home X Heimat Atlantica Candles

Debuting the magnificent candle holders on their Instagram, Zara Home say, "This candleholder capsule collection in collaboration with @heimat_atlantica highlights traditional techniques. Zara Home’s aromatic candles with green, floral and fruity touches rediscover a unique piece in a limited edition." 

Not only are these some of the best-scented candles, but they're also handcrafted by the iconic Mediterranean brand Heimat Atlantica which is world-renowned for its signature basket bags that showcase hand-weaving from the Atlantic coasts of Portugal and Spain. 

The collection, which consists of three slightly differently designed wicker candle holders, is reed basketry made from Portuguese looms with leather that's tanned in Spain which makes the creation process a unique hallmark. 

Whilst this may seem like a steep price to pay for a scented candle, there is no denying the quality craftsmanship and signature design these pieces have. And the best thing? When you've burnt the candle which comes with the holder, a candle which costs £19.99 alone, you can simply purchase a refill candle and continue to admire your hand-woven holder.

If you're looking for ways to make your home smell good, large candles like these 620g scented candles in the collection are absolutely perfect. Each design has a different scent, the handled brown and cream weave is basilicum, the lidded candle is white jasmine and the third is lemon bergamot scented. 

Why not transform your home into a Med-inspired oasis with both the scents and aesthetics of a wondrous summer abroad in Europe? We definitely will be doing so to add a touch of luxe to our outdoor living room ideas while entertaining this summer.
