Vintage Wall Sconce Adds Elegance to Bold, Blue Bathroom

When working in small spaces, it’s tempting to keep things muted and calm. Too much texture, color, or accessorizing can make a bathroom, closet, or tiny work space look cluttered and confusing. The key is to have balance in the space. If you fell in love with a piece of vintage decor at the flea market, use it! Can’t live without bright plaid wallpaper? Paste away, but balance the blast of color with coordinating solids and textures.

This bathroom space doesn’t shy away from a deep blue paint color that, if paired with heavier fixtures and fussy accessories, could overpower the space and make the room claustrophobic. But the sleek, polished chrome accents, the shiny hammered mirror frame, and the bright white vanity and beadboard cabinetry all bring a pleasant balance to the space and help create an inviting, even soothing room that leans just a bit towards the nautical.

The wall sconce also adds a delicate touch to the blue wall and, with a double shade, provides ample light to the vanity space. To get this look, check out The Village Double Shade Sconce, part of our collection of Vintage Wall Sconces. This fixture is an original manufactured by Urban Archeology and is offered at half off the original price. At 10″ high and 14″ wide, this bathroom light features a polished chrome finish and frosted glass. If you prefer a single fixture to mount on either side of a bathroom mirror, the Village Single Sconce is also available. Featuring the same frosted glass and polished chrome finish as its double cousin, the Single Village Sconce is also offered at half off the original Urban Archeology prices.
