Lighting professionals counsel thinking in layers of light to make a room functional and attractive: ambient, or overall, light; task-light for reading and manual chores; decorative light to highlight areas of the room, pictures or other accessories; and accent light, which can bring drama and focus to an architectural feature or small area of the room. Use sconces for decorative and accent light; even a large chandelier, they point out, may provide good table-light while leaving parts of the room shadowy or dark.
The trick to adding glamour to a bathroom space is simple: pair a modern wall mirror that suits the style of your home with a set of contemporary sconces flanking the mirror and you’ll achieve a fresh and fabulous look. Great bath lighting makes all the difference.
If you want the wow factor, seek out a mirror and sconces in contrasting but eye-catching shapes, both linear and curvaceous. It’s an easy way to have a modern bathroom with designer style, mix a stunning statement mirror with a pair of chic sconces in a style that both makes you happy and complements your home.
All you do is attach them to the wall, much as you would hang a photo or art piece, and plug them in. That’s it! You can dress the hanging cord up with a cord cover for a fancier look, but there’s no electrical work needed.
Our bedroom has a pair of the Hudson Valley Roslyn adjustable arm wall sconces in bronze. They can rotate 180 degrees from side to side and the shades can be adjusted upward or downwards.
Using a pair of sconces fairly close together, on both sides of a mirror or a mantel, can add a touch of formality to your room. You can reinforce this symmetry with a second pair of sconces on the opposite wall. Center a single sconce over a serving or decorative side table on which candlesticks, vases and other accessories are arranged symmetrically. Place sconces on either side of a window to balance out the loss of daylight. Create a table vignette under a dramatically shaded sconce; let the pool of light illuminate flowers too tall for the table, a painted ceramic bowl or pitcher or an antique china tureen, whose colors were the key to the room`s color scheme.
I’ll admit to this example being a bit of a cheat. It’s clearly a pendant light that has been harnessed into duty very cleverly as a sconce, by virtue of the metal arm attaching it to the wall, in this utilitarian bedroom and adjacent workspace. The mixture of rustic and industrial elements in this space creates a terrifically appealing look, and the lighting is an important component of that. Note that there’s also an industrial work lamp next to the computer.
