Having concrete ceilings at #BKaptstory definitely was overall very positive. Even though my apartment is in a busy part of Brooklyn, you can't hear a sound from outside and I also can't hear my neighbors above or below me. In New York, silence is a gift. But, concrete meant no overhead lighting and this made lighting decisions in my living room critical. I made the choice to install switched scones over the couch (from Restoration Hardware) and while I've been very happy with them, I wanted to round up my current sconce picks!
These sconces have worked well for several reasons. The glass shades allow for maximum light to be in the room. The dark bronze and gold tones provide a focal point and contrast in a room with a lot light furnishings. My strategy for lighting in the living and dining rooms has been to mix black and gold metals. I struggle mixing more than two colors when it comes to metals, also I know a other designer that do it well.

But, for a serial stylist and design addict...it's always fun to imagine what other options would look like in the space! Here's a shot of the room so you can see how the sconces work with the rest of the lighting.
As always, I scour the internet so that you don't have to! Below are my current picks for sconces. It would seem that I am still drawn primarily to black and gold fixtures. Let me know what you think of the roundup and what kind of sconces you're loving!
