9 Bedside Sconces to Brighten up your Nighttime Reading

9 Bedside Sconces to Brighten up your Nighttime Reading — on @Savvyhome

I’ve always had a thing for wall sconces, especially in the bedroom where nightstand space can be limited and optimal reading light is crucial to maintaining healthy eyesight (thanks for the constant reminder mom). Whether your full bed is smacked in between two walls in your NYC rental or your California king is sprawling across acres of bedside bliss, here are 9 sconces for all budgets that will brighten up your bedroom.

9 Bedside Sconces to Brighten up your Nighttime Reading — on @SavvyHome

When looking for sconces, consider options that are proportional to your wall size. You don’t want a tiny sconce to get lost on a large wall—and conversely, you don’t want a 70″ long Serge Mouille sconce to overpower your tiny space.

If you live in a rental, choose a sconce that can simply be plugged in so you won’t need an electrician to come in and re-wire your walls. That way you can splurge on a pair of dreamy Ralph Lauren swing arms and easily take them with you when you leave.

For ultimate comfort, choose a sconce with a light switch, like the Serena & Lily Flynn Sconce  or Aerin’s Charlton Wall Light—that’s unless you have remote controlled light switches or a clapper of course.

 “Most of the time I prefer to use neutral-based larger pieces, I feel like it helps to keep a calming vibe throughout the house” —Amber Lewis

Amber Lewis did it again. Her latest project involved a nursery for a growing family, a master bathroom remodel and as always, a lot of vintage exotic textiles fearlessly mixed together. Lewis says she can layer many eclectic textiles as long as the larger pieces are kept neutral. It helps the house feel collected but not over decorated. The main showstopper is the bathroom, finished with handmade moroccan tiles, white marble accents, sconces from Schoolhouse Electric, a black lacquered double vanity and a vintage Persian rug, which also ties in nicely with the breezy nursery.

Amber’s signature look: industrial lighting, built-in bookcases, bamboo roman shades,white upholstered pieces in mid-century shapes, breakfast nooks, lots of natural textures, indigo batik textiles mixed with vintage chinese embroidery, persian rugs and African mud cloth textiles. The result: a low-maintenance family friendly home with a distinctive boho flair.

Fashion to Kitchen: A Tailored Look with Global Accents

Fashion to Kitchen: A Tailored Look with Global Accents: Olivia Palermo London Fashion Week Fall 2014 — Mona Hajj Interiors Kitchen on @SavvyHome

 

Pinterest is great. I love when I’m scrolling through my feed and I stumble upon two images next to each other that just fit perfectly. That’s exactly what happened when I spotted this kitchen by Mona Hajj next to Olivia Palermo at London Fashion Week (side note, I’m completely obsessed with her Dior So Real sunglasses — I might need to get my hands on a pair soon). Upon further investigation I realized that I had been pinning quite a few images in shades of raspberry and duck egg. I love how fresh the two colors feel together. I could totally see this color combination in a light-filled apartment with a mix of modern elements and traditional and global accents.
