It’s time for a refreshing change from the usual repurposed wood and warehouse lamps today. Rustic style lighting encompasses more than you probably think; it’s not all about a vintage porcelain gooseneck or even high bay fluorescent lights found in horse stables.
This small half bath featured in Better Homes and Gardens features many qualities of a contemporary, yet rustic farmhouse bath. Creamy beige walls paired with bead board wainscoting keep the room light and helps it to appear more spacious. Hexagonal tiles below add a bit of vintage charm seen in older authentic farmhouses. A pop of color is provided with the bright apple green vase, letting it become the ideal finishing touch to an otherwise neutral powder room.
Let’s focus on the vanity area: a built in medicine cabinet houses the mirror along with a plethora of various toiletries. Since the pedestal sink doesn’t offer the storage of an under sink model, the hidden shelving in the medicine cabinet is essential. Another necessity is a towel holder – a similar one can be found with our 9” Polished Chrome Towel Ring, constructed from solid brass for durable, long lasting quality.
However, none of this will do any good – functionally or aesthetically – without the proper lighting. Adjustable vintage lamps like the Lynnwood Wall Sconce seem to be designed for vanity areas. Because the neck is jointed, the shade can be moved around in order eliminate shadows cast upon your face while you or your guests are getting ready to start the day. Another bonus about the Lynnwood Sconce? It is available with a solid brass shade for a traditional look or a milk glass shade if you wish to have a softer, brighter look. The elegance and simplicity of this vintage sconce may make you want to incorporate it throughout your home, and we can’t blame you! It makes the best bedside reading lamp or task light for your home office.
