Bedroom Sconces….

….And just like that, it’s September! Can you believe it? This Labor Day weekend I have been lucky enough to have a very relaxing weekend at home.  To be quite honest, it was exactly the weekend I needed.  Now I am all refreshed, organized and ready to tackle another week of great projects (and I get to finish up the week in Charleston… happy happy girl!)!!

One lighting design element that I love to use is Sconces located next to a bed rather than using table lamps.  No matter what the style, there is something charming, sophisticated, yet slightly casual about the concept.  I think it is a great way to really give a bedroom personality and an overall inviting feel.

Adding hardwired sconces is something that you need to plan for in order to have the electrical in the correct location.  In some instances, an electrician can pull wires from an existing source, if you are adding them to a finished space, but its  best to verify with an electrician prior to buying your fixtures.  There are also several plug-in styles available now as well, so if you can’t hard wire then you are not totally out of luck!
