One design element that changes a room immediately is lighting. It takes a room from boring to beautiful. It creates the perfect mood and transforms any style of space.

One type of lighting that I can’t get enough of is the sconce. It’s practical, accessible and so stylish. You can use sconces in pretty much any room. They make great reading lights, mood lights and spotlights. For bedrooms, you can hang them directly above your side of the bed or above your side table.

Here’s another example of using a sconce on the side of a bed. And this gold sconce looks fabulous on the light grey wall.

For a fun design element, use sconces to line the wall. At night you will have a spectacular light element that will create a beautiful showing.

There are so many wall sconce designs to choose from. You can pair a modern sconce with a more traditional space or you can pair a more classic, traditional sconce with a modern space. Either way, I promise that you will love the outcome!

Are you a fan of using sconces in your space?
