Use exterior wall sconces for décor: Outdoor lighting doesn’t have to only be utilitarian. Wall sconces can provide washes of light against the exterior walls of your home to create ambiance in the evening hours.
Create a mood/theme: In your bedroom decide what type of mood you want to evoke. Whether it’s a romantic feeling with soft incandescent wall sconces besides each side of the bed, or a dramatic approach with an ornate chandelier.
For nurseries consider a dim wall sconce, or table lamp that can be used for changing diapers, or rocking infants to sleep.
Modern home retailer, 2Modern’s, top lighting trend for 2016 is the malleable pendant or chandelier. Because each customer’s lighting needs are different, 2Modern has expanded its malleable lighting collection in order to provide “a lamp that can be tailored to spatial needs.” On-trend examples include Rich Brilliant Willing’s Palindrome Chandelier or Moooi’s Heracleum (shown above).
