Our Bedroom Sconces

18

In yesterday's post, I mentioned that we recently got some wall sconces for our bedroom. Today, I want to show you how they look! I was glad that a couple of you said #3 was your favorite option, because it’s the one that we chose. My favorite too--you guys have good taste! ;) I had worried a little bit about how the cord would look, since we couldn't actually hardwire the lamps into the wall (#renterproblems), but the sconces came with a stylish cord cover that matches the brass finish of the lamps… and I actually think it looks pretty cool!

The main reason we decided to get sconces instead of bedside lamps is that we wanted to free up some space on our nightstands. But once we got them installed, we realized there was another major benefit: our bed has these “wings” that blocked a lot of the light from our old bedside lamps. That problem was totally solved by mounting the sconces above the bed! Lots more light, lots more space, and I love they way they look.

Also, for some reason I never realized before that Lamps Plus carries more than just lighting (I guess that's why there's that "plus")! They actually have a lot of great furniture and home decor pieces, including these ghost chairs, a style I've been eyeing for years. So I had to get those as well--I have one at my dressing table now!

That's our bedroom in it's current state! We've come a long way from the before pics that I shared back in August. I have a few more finishing touches planned, but other than that, I feel like our bedroom is basically done.

Now, what room of the house should I tackle next? Just kidding...kind of...

Thank you to Lamps Plus for partnering with me on this post!

    You will love them! I think if you are a reader..(in bed)...These are the best for light and ease. It all looks beautiful!

      I do read in bed, and I’ve already noticed how much better it is!!

    Ugh SO good. Perfect match with that headboard (still can't convince boyfriend on it >: ( ) and I'm very partial to ghost chairs. Yet another thing added to the list for why we are twins. IN LOVE with these gorgeous updates!

      Haha, thank you Amy!! It took me four years to convince Ben that a bed frame was necessary, so I feel ya. I actually kept saying I was going to DIY one, and then when we found such a good deal on this one I think he was relieved NOT to have to help me with another big DIY project...so you could always try that method ;) So glad you love our updates! That means a lot :)

    I definitely think the hard coverings add something, too! Now, can you come to Kansas City and give our bedroom a makeover? ;)
    • Posted by Aileen on Friday, February 27th, 2015

      Yay! Thanks, Jess. That would be totally fun...I still sometimes think I should try to do interior design as a career (it's obviously a big hobby of mine). Who knows?!?

    Love the look of your new wall sconces - the cord covers are a GENIUS way to cover up those dangling wires!!
    • Posted by Aileen on Monday, March 2nd, 2015

      Thanks, Gloria! I just saw your post about what to do with wires, and I have to say, some of those ideas are WAY more genius! I'm so impressed by people's creativity and ability to turn something ugly into art.

    I Aileen, your next post won't work for comments. I love all the photos there, and the yellow napkins are my favorite :). this is just FYI
    • Posted by Aileen on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

      Oh, thanks Debbie! Shoot, I don’t know why that happened. It’s fixed now!

    Where is your desk/dressing table from? I am looking for one for a new apartment!

    Love your blog!
