There is no better way to create a special atmosphere than candlelight. Especially in winter when you want warmth and coziness. With candle sconces, the idea is to take inspiration from the use of candles in the past and mix it with our modern way of life.
Candle sconces can really add a touch of originality and authenticity to a hallway wall, a small, poorly exploited corner, or in a kitchen. There are really a thousand and one places to add one. You just have to make sure that the area is safe and that nothing can catch fire around it. Try to consider it when you want to decorate a blank wall or when you are trying to build a gallery wall. It’s a great decor item that can add a lot of character.
For some time now, there has been a resurgence of candle sconces. This is probably due to the fact that the slow living movement is more and more popular all over the world. And this is not to displease us. Here is my selection of the best pieces found on the internet.
P.S. The brass candle sconce featured in the pictures below is from H&M home.
