Space is at a premium in most city apartments, at least in mine it is. I am always trying to come up with different ways to organize, store stuff and cut back the crap.
Yesterday I took a hard look at my bedroom to see what I can do to make more space. I know it's not a new idea, but I guess I'm really giving wall sconces a second glance.
Of course my favorite ones from Circa Lighting are a tad out of my price range. Sad face for me.
( The Boston Functional Library Wall Light @ $273 & The Boston Swing Arm Lamp $244)
Ikea has some nice choices as well. Much more in my price range, and since this is not my forever home might be a nice choice for the time being
($14.99 & $29.99)
Bellacor offers some nice options that fall between Circa Lighting and Ikea with, a wide rage of traditional and modern styles.
I like the Rhine Antique Brass Sconce because while the color is pretty traditional the shape is not. Most of the stuff in my house tends to lean more traditional. But lately I have been loving more of a modern look lately I think this sconce might be a nice change without sticking out like a sore thumb.
I don't think I have enough room for this white beauty, but I sure love it!
(but at $90 each, I think they might stay at the store)
This silver pharmacy lamp is a beaut, but I think that little handle on the end might remind me of being in the dentist chair (you know that light above you the dentist is always moving around to get the right light into your gaping mouth? please tell me you know what I'm talking about here)
(it's also $86.95- so at the store it stays too)
Which now puts me back at square one. Oh the choices and possibilities!Why is it so hard for me to make any friggin choices lately. I think all this wedding planning is frying my brain.
Happy Thursday crap, Wednesday.
