LIGHT UP YOUR BATHROOM'S LIFE

LIGHTING . . . . . 

the finishing touch
the jewelry of the room.
Here are a few that I think qualify 
as that very element!
They are beautiful, substantial  [not spindly],
gleaming, gorgeous fixtures - like a lovely polished bracelet -
the perfect finishing touch to any room
and the perfect element to update a tired bathroom
without spending a fortune

(I should probably explain here that these are the
end result of a search for a client for the perfect bathroom lighting)
I've provided links so you can purchase them online.
[AF Lighting] Candice Olson - Margo sconce (here)
(also comes with black/chocolate shade)
First - in no particular order of preference - Canadian designer Candice Olson's Margo sconce
which I love because it has substance, a mirrored finish and a little bling.....

Next, Restoration Hardware's Campaign collection.  Look at the chunkiness of the base - it has heft and it looks like a million bucks - for not a million bucks
and it looks great against a gray wall doesn't it?
[Restoration Hardware] - Campaign sconce (here) $99

[Restoration Hardware] - Campaign vanity light  here  $169

I love the chunky squareness of this fixture
[Hudson Valley Lighting] - Lakeland sconce $159 here

[Hudson Valley Lighting] - Lakeland vanity light  $320 here

Another squarish fixture - this one with a flared glass shade
I love the backplate on this.
[Murray Feiss] American Foursquare sconce $111 here

[Murray Feiss] American Foursquare vanity light $299  here

This one has a little more bling.  It's elegant and feminine. I love the drum shade.  

[Savoy House] Rosendal sconce $131  here
The vanity light has glass drum shades.
[Savoy House] Rosendal vanity light $222 here


This next fixture is one that we chose for my client.  It is so beautiful in the room - this photo does not do it justice.  The shades are frosted glass and it has just enough bling.  It is also quite heavy and well made


[Quoizel] Hollister vanity light $220  here
(sconce also available)


Murray Feiss's Canterbury fixture has substance with a vintage feel.  Its a favorite of mine and
one I have used many times.  It is beautiful in chrome.

[Murray Feiss] Canterbury vanity light $141 here
Another gleaming chrome fixture from Quoizel
(picture this on a cool gray wall
or a grayed down blue one - heavenly)
[Quoizel] Quinton vanity light $135 here

The black drum shades on this pewter-look vanity light
lend both elegance and drama to a room.
I love that it has a mix of both traditional and contemporary styles
a perfect fixture to freshen up the style in your room a little
[Savoy House] Monte la Ville $284 here

Have you noticed the 'nature' trend?  Twigs and birds, bark and leaves are not just for fabrics and wallpaper.  I love the way nature is elevated to art in this sconce - the dramatic length of it - the drum shade
its pretty spectacular - don't you think?  And while a bath may be beautified by it, I can also picture it in a great room, or a living room, or flanking a fireplace.


[Troy Lighting] Adirondack collection sconce $178 here
From the same collection, but with a much more contemporary vibe, this beautiful sconce
is a substantial 25 inches tall and 12 inches wide.  I can think of so many places this would look wonderful!

[Troy Lighting] Adirondack collection flourescent sconce $300  here

Many of these fixtures are available in other finishes, but I think these look their best in the silver.



The fixture in my powder room is 10 years old and a little dated 
I think its time for a change
Oh, how will I ever choose!
