I'm not just a regular light, I'm a sconce light!
I love accent lighting. My builder and his team know when I say "I have an idea" that 90% of the time it's a sconce light. I find it is a generally budget friendly way to add a HUGE impact to nearly any space. And let's be honest, there is always a budget. I may not be able to do the $30 a foot tile that I want, but I can usually find a high impact accent light for $100-200 to add a "wow".
In our own home office, we wanted to have multiple light sources depending upon what we're working on. The overhead fixture alone can offer enough light to fill the room, but the sconce lights add a more appropriate soft light while working on the computer at night... and as a bonus, they just look really damn cool.
I love this sconce and the impact it makes in the center of these mirrors. This is the Meurice Sconce by Johnathan Adler-- you should see the dining fixture of this collection... it's TO DIE FOR! This sconce light has 10 (TEN!!) bulbs so can easily stand on it's own to light up the space. This bathroom is also a winner in mixing metals, textures and styles. I'm totally in love!
Another great place to add sconce lights for unique appeal is on the side of a fireplace. Here is a project we recently completed that features the Library Sconce from Restoration Hardware. The high arc arms are even more pretty in person and they make for an excellent mood light.
Here a more traditional take on a sconce in place of a lamp next to the bed. I love the whole vibe and use of the chair as a bedside table. So good! And that wallpaper, right? So subtle, but an amazing pattern. It makes me want to wallpaper my whole home.
Here's another stunner designed by Brittany of The Vintage Rug Shop. It features the Cedar and Moss Vista Sconce. Our personal home is filled with Cedar and Moss lights. They are unique and gorgeous! The packaging (which I'm always a sucker for) is great and they come with a pair of white gloves for install. Such a great touch! They are customizable in multiple metals and sizes. Also, can be please talk about that vanity, the mirror, the tile... all of it!?
