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.
Beautiful Southwest wall sconces are available in an array of colors, materials, styles, and hand-painted designs, making it easy to find the right sconce to fit any traditional, rustic or modern Southwest decor.
Traditional: Traditional wall sconces have easy curves and graceful scrolled arms, and are often constructed of copper, brass or pewter metals. Candelabras or candle wall sconces are traditional wall sconces, having a very elegant appearance.
Decorating rooms with sconces can embellish the life of any room in the home. Sconces are the perfect fit for adding accent lighting and mood in foyers, bathrooms, hallways, bedrooms, sprucing up negative space and focusing on special elements such as artwork. There is literally no space in the interior or exterior of the home where sconces can’t do magic. Negative space is an area on the wall that doesn’t really contribute any functional view to the room and basically looks sparse. You could add a mirror to this negative space and pair both sides with the accent lighting of sconces and magically this space is no longer "negative". This same decorative look can be accomplished above a master bed or above a fireplace. The decorating possibilities are boundless!
One quick way to update the look of your home is with the judicious use of sconces for accent lighting. Sconces are an inexpensive way to add color and depth to the walls. In particular, the gentle light from candle wall sconces can give a subtle glow to your wall coverings while providing practical illumination.
