ggrd Wall Sconces May 01st, 2018 - 14:39:52
In another small bathroom whose walls are faced with traditional tile, the vanity has a pretty ivory and yellow skirt. The mirror is the front of a medicine chest and is acid etched with sheaves of wheat at the top. The wall sconce beside it is made of chrome with a milk glass, bell shaped shade over a single 100 watt bulb.
Using these pieces in the family room is a great idea as well. They can be used, not only for decoration and a bit of light, but also as a shelf to hold that special photo. If you find one that doubles as a small shelf it works well to double up on them and place them on the wall on either side of a large picture with two smaller pictures sitting on the shelves. It gives a feel of balance and organization while showing off those special photos. At the same time it gives a feel of home to the room.
These lighting fixtures are usually wall mounted just about the midpoint of a wall. You can go higher or lower, but remember that a poorly placed wall sconce is glaringly noticeable and may not achieve the desired lighting effect. You want a light that will be soft, so place it at a level that won`t glare in your eyes.
It was always in my immediate reach. I was just unaware how lighting can change your mood and make your entire self relax. By placing wall sconce lighting in certain areas around my vanity and a hypnotic sconce on the wall overlooking my bath, this room has developed into a spa like atmosphere. It gives off a halo or shadow that surrounds me with a comforting and pleasing feeling. These special effects have given me the energy that is well deserved and needed at the end of the day.
