My goals for 2013? To be true to myself and my style. To trust my own instincts and listen to my inner voice more and not get too influenced/intimidated by what everyone else is doing. Let's face it, there's a lot of pressure out there to create something fabulous and gray and modern what with all the amazing spaces we see each day on Pinterest - that are professionally styled, lit, photographed and edited. So that's my own little mantra this year.
Now, on the sconces. It started with the latest Ballard Designs catalog I got over the holidays. Really the least attractive cover I've seen in quite a while with its neon acid green and greige color palette. The bright spot in the catalog for me was the Loiret candle sconce.
Isn't she a beauty? I love that it's sculptural, classical, simple and dramatic all at the same time.
Shall we go on? These wheat sheaf candle sconces from Bellacor are a classic.
Is vintage more your style?

I adore these below. Can you see the fish painted on the drip plates?
See them here.
Finally, if you're interested, 1st dibs has a pair of brass candle sconces. Very MLB.
I'm pretty sure they cost more than the one I found at Goodwill last summer, that will go in my master bathroom when it gets finished some day - which reminds me of another goal I need to work on - finishing one project before working on the next...
Feels great to be back! Happy 2013!
