Sconce Search

Thank you for your very kind responses to our exterior project reveal. It feels SO GOOD to have that behind us and are so happy with the results. But there's still a lot of work to do on Hazard Ave, so let's move right along to our foyer & hallway, shall we?

I seem to have the most difficult time selecting lighting (unless it is alabaster, and then I can't control myself).  I'm getting pulled in several different directions when it comes to choosing the sconces for our downstairs hallway.

Do I go with something very simple that won't compete with the mirror?
Soho

Simple with a twist? 
Soho with Black Shade

Doublewide? 
Double Swag


 Doublewide with an "x"?
Transitional "X"

I'm leaning towards doublewide with an "x". I like the way the "x"s in the sconces mimic the "x"s on the mirror, but I'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

I like the x or the double swag….they just feel more substantial for that space.

The X feels like it is competing with the mirror? Is this to scale? I would go with something taller/longer. Hope that does not hurt your feelings.

X or the simple route. But what do I know?

I think I like the double wide. Seems more proportionate. Although I do think they are all awesome!

The dingles feel pretty small. I'm a fan of either of the double wides, especially the first with the swoops--though I have almost used these in a project, so perhaps I am just living vicariously. :)

Definitely thick doublewide! The singles done fill the space of the picture molding enough. Love the Xs but either works!

I vote for the double swag, the "w" works with the lines of the mirror too. Nice/helpful mock up....

I like the doublewide and X. It just seems right.

Holly said...

Mmm...I like the simple look but I also like the W double-wide.

Ashley@AttemptsAtDomestication said...

I agree with the doublewide X! Looks great with the mirror! :)

Sarah said...

Oooh, tough choice, Carrie!! Awesome mock-ups though. I vote for the double swag...maybe I'm too traditional?

Jen @ RamblingRenovators said...

I think I like the doubleswag best. It adds some roundness to all the angular lines.

Lisa @ Cozy Condo Living said...

Hmmm. I guess I'm in the minority because I'm liking the soho with the black shade. I love that mirror so it seems like that should be the star of the show.

Kelly @ View Along the Way said...

I like the proportions of the double one, if it's photoshopped to scale.

DebbieB said...

I like the soho with a twist. However if you go with the double to fill the space more Ilove the X one.

Naomi Jackson said...

I really like either of the doubles. The singles just seem dwarfed by the mirror. Whatever you chose it will be really pretty I'm sure!

Jamie said...

I love both of the doubles options!

Taylor Greenwalt said...

All great choices, but the last ones are my favorites.

Julie S said...

Depends on how traditional you want it to end up. The double with the X is great but very traditional. If you want it a little lighter and less historical looking, I think the Soho with black shade competes LESS than the Soho with white shade and is a great simple choice. My 2 cents.

I am totally late on this, but I have both numbers 1 and 3 in my house. I am kind of digging the double swag for your space. I am happy to take pictures of both sconces if it's helpful to see them in a "real" space.
