ggrd Wall Sconces April 16th, 2018 - 12:47:32
In another bathroom, a similar mirror has been hung above a traditional porcelain topped vanity with a built in, three mount sink with polished brass spigot and handles. This mirror also has an ornate frame but the wood, carved into knots of fruit and acanthus leaves, is painted ivory. The wall sconces have escutcheons painted the same color as the mirror frame, and the incandescent bulbs have silk shades edged with tiny white pompoms and braid.
Wall sconces have been used for centuries but nowadays you can find styles to suit any decor. You can also choose from many types, including candle, electric bulb and electric candle sconces. All provide a soft glow that creates a warm environment. Once you have decided which style suits you, you have to consider placement.
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.
A tiny, very modernistic bathroom has a long vanity with two sinks whose top is made of what looks like plexiglas. Above it hangs a simple, frameless round mirror. The wall sconces are actually on the adjacent wall and look like two portholes, one placed right above the other. In a large bathroom, a gorgeous vanity has beautiful, teak wood drawers and cabinets beneath and a top made out of gray and white Botticino classico marble. Two mirrors, also framed in teak, are mounted above two sinks. Between the two mirrors is a wall sconce that drips with crystal chains, balls and almonds like a tiny, three armed chandelier.
