Earlier this week I shared with you the overall design plan for the first floor bedroom at the coastal cottage. This tiny room is ready for paint and built-ins and with the ceiling fan already here and ready to install, I knew I needed to finalize my choice for the wall sconces above the bed.
Because the bed in this room will be built-in flanked on either side with built-in closets for storage, I decided the best option to provide lighting near the bed would be to install two wall sconces just above the shelf headboard we are building custom for the space.
I’ve been all over the place on lighting though. On one hand, I love the idea of a rotating arm style option so the lighting can be adjusted. On the flip side, I also don’t want a light fixture that feels too bulky or that has too much going on in such a small space. I don’t want an arm to always feel like it’s in the way so a more simplified design seems better.
Either way, I’m leaning toward something that is more transitional in style. Nothing too modern, nothing too formal or ornate but still interesting and beautiful.
I’m still completely undecided so today I’m sharing with you my favorites in the hopes that you might have some input on the final design choice.
I’m leaning toward something gold / brass. The room is white with light gray trim and an accent wall in a blue-gray. The floors will be southern heart pine but other than the floors, the only warm tone will be the headboard / shelf. I’m thinking brass will bring in a bit more warmth. The more I look, the more I love the fixtures with the combination of brass and white. The ceiling fan is all white so I love that it could help tie everything together.
