Nautical Wall Sconces for a Modern Farmhouse Bathroom

When farmhouse style is brought up, the word vintage comes to mind. Designers and homeowners scout the antique scene to find anything and everything kitschy and country to complete a room. Some of these pieces include vintage dishes, mason jars, and even old-world dining tables.

However, what happens when you want that airy farmhouse feel without the total vintage package? The look you’re going for can easily go from farmhouse to contemporary within minutes, but you can take pieces from original vintage spaces and make them new again. The bathroom featured today looks fresh, but still ethereal and classic, right?

The carrara marble countertop is key here; many farmhouse bathrooms and kitchens incorporate lighter shades of marble for a timeless look that is easy to maintain. By designing the countertop with dual sinks along with a built in shelf above, this bathroom is great for guests too. Add one simple vintage piece, like the terrarium in the center, to bring in a bit of nature – another necessity for farmhouse style.

One thing that can be tricky for a farmhouse bathroom is lighting. Do you add a small gooseneck barn light above? Or maybe a schoolhouse pendant lamp along the ceiling? Well, both of the above are plausible options, but did you ever think to add vintage-style nautical wall sconces? Almost identical to the three sconces flanking the simple oval mirrors are the Bayside Adjustable Wall Sconces. The Bayside has a maritime style found in the shape of the shade and the adjustable arm. Shown in polished nickel, it has a timeless, traditional elegance that directs soft lighting downward instead of directly in your eyes. An old bronze finish would also work great for a more antiquated space too. Perfect for focusing on select areas, the Bayside Adjustable Wall Sconce can be found in our Vintage Wall Sconces section and is ideal for completing your modernized, industrial farmhouse bathroom.
