A great way to give any room in the home a warm and welcoming look is to take advantage of candle wall sconces. Anyone will find that when sconces are used, a room can take on a whole new look.
Normally they are not super bright. They are just subtle and give off just enough light to add a little accent here and there and to provide just enough light to see where one's going. So maybe today you walk around the side of your house on a path you‘ve created, but at night you stumble through the dark trying to get to your backyard!
Some companies make their sconces out of clay, leaving the natural look and feel of the material intact. Other than the light emanating from inside, they look like historic artifacts that may have come from an archaeological dig.
Most externally placed sconces utilize a single light bulb. A number of them have a half-moon shaped lid that shields the bulb from view and imparts an upward shaft of light on the exterior walls. There are also wall sconces that have a full-cover opaque lens that renders a moon-glow effect, with the light dispersing around the fixture. From traditionally ornate designs to sleek-lined simple motifs, there is a range of styles available in the market. You can find them nowadays in various art deco style, rustic or contemporary and modern. There are even some with a shape of a leaf, which are really elegant to look at.
The Mission Style: Craftsman wall sconces have a distinct basic style with strong structure, clean lines, and organic materials such as mica, wood, and copper. It focuses on a handmade look in contract to a factory reproduction. The Mission style emerged from the Arts and Crafts period and is still quite popular today. This style has primitive, plain lines and usually displays darker, warmer finishes.
