I like lights with a sense of history – think reproductions, or updates to classics. Many of our favorite manufacturers have done just that, making lights that look convincingly like original fixtures. In our round up of brass wall sconces, inspired by my own bathroom, I’ve extended the search to include some mixed metal options as well.
In all of our options, I’ve selected pieces with frosted or milkglass shades – I am not a fan of exposed bulbs. These glass baffles tend to diffuse the light, and cast a softer and kinder glow to faces and rooms alike. I put all my bathroom lights on dimmers as a great way to add even more instant ambiance. Bathrooms are far more than utility spaces – they’re often your first and last stop of the day. Changing out your ho-hum light fixtures for some of these brass beauties is a great way to elevate your look, and to make sure your look rises to meet you.
