Since I did a Sconces Part I, I feel a need to follow up with a Part II!
As I mentioned in Sconces Part I, I have recently developed a love for sconces. I think that they add a special touch to a room, and are one of the details that make an interior exceptional. For a long time, I begged Joni from Cote de Texas to do a sconce post, as she uses them frequently in her designs. In response, she did an amazing post a few weeks ago. Her post really covered the design aspect of sconces; I am going to add a few pictures of inspirational sconces that are in my tear sheet file.
Fine Art Lamps Sconce, from the Portobello Road Collection. This one was featured in the sconce article in House Beautiful.
Although these are not sconces that I would use, I love the effect in this room. The sconces are by Moth Design (thanks for the tip, anonymous!). They add a great color and style component, and I appreciate that the color is repeated in the throw and pillow. I am not sure who to credit this picture to; my notes say 'WDR'.
Isn't this a beautiful scene? Sconces on either side of a window may seem redundant, as they are not really needed for their light, but they are very architecturally pleasing. Design by Whiteney Stewart.
Interestingly enough, not very many of the rooms featured in my inspiration files (on my computer) have sconces. If I had it my way, every room in my house would have a sconce!
Do you have a favorite? My favorite is still the Gossip Girl Sconce.......
