There are places in the home that just need a bit of light, usually in a hall or a stairwell. Sconces are perfect for these spaces because they give you enough light without being too bright or intrusive in a small area. But why go with a dull everyday look? Small halls and landings are boring enough without having a plain Jane sconce hanging there, too. I love to perk up these spaces with pieces of art that just happen to also light the way!
In the bathroom above, I had these brass sconces hand made for the room. I love how long they are and that they have an acrylic sphere at the bottom - they add so much to the space! Bathrooms are great rooms for sconces because they bring better light to your face, making it easier to see yourself for makeup applications.
