The bright yellow wall sconce grabbed Michelle’s attention. Contemplating a major remodel of her home in San Clemente, California, Michelle was flipping through HGTV Magazine when she spied a Barn Light Electric Wesco Sconce.
“It was bright yellow in the picture and I LOVED it!” Michelle says. “I loved the simple lines. It was fun and playful but timeless.

You just never know what winter may bring unless you live in Woodstock, Vermont, like our friend Sophia, where you are pretty much guaranteed to have your fair share of snow and ice this time of year.
