Add a Candle Sconce for Fall

Last week I shared some fall decor ideas for this year.  One of them was a candle sconce, which I am really loving this year!  They are fairly inexpensive, compared to electric wall sconces, and add a beautiful texture and shine to a room. I scoured the internet for some gorgeous new and vintage finds…there really is something for every style!  Here are 20 of my favorites!

Here are some real-life examples of where and how to use candle sconces inside a home! (Just click on the picture to go to the source)


An entry is a great place to hang a pair of candle sconces…such a cozy way to greet guests when it gets dark so early.

The fireplace is a great place for candle sconces, when you are looking for a more affordable solution to electric sconces, with the same amount of beauty.


A pair of sconces can help create beautiful symmetry in a formal room.


Even bathrooms can use sconces!

21 Black Wall Sconces

One of my favorite little details in the Room of the Week is the pair of lamps at each side of the bed.

While it’s not the most economical or practical solution to have that many lamps in a bedroom it is a fun artistic idea, especially when the lamps are so sculptural.  I love the way the black wall lamps look a little more modern and the table lamps are more traditional.  Those black wall sconces are like a little exclamation point in the room helping to make the bed the focal point of the room.

And, right now little black sconces are everywhere.  Here are 21 black wall sconces to suit almost any style!

The Arc Lamp

Continuing with our mid-century theme this week I wanted to focus first on lighting today!  So many iconic lighting fixtures were designed during 1940s through the 1960s, and one of my favorites is the Arco lamp.  Its shape and material construction make it a timeless design that can fit in a variety of styles.

But, if this particular mid-century lamp isn’t your thing, I guarantee there is an arc lamp out there for you.  This versatile shape has been reproduced to suit every style, room size and budget.  Here are 10 of my favorites!
