In my search for a small sconce for a tight space to put over Laney’s bed in her big girl room, I kept seeing these modern sconces sometimes paired with a slightly traditional look in the rest of the room. The introduction of the modern sconce in these rooms is one little piece of the puzzle that makes the room a little more eclectic, it gets at that magical mix that everyone is after…including me.
Looks like the same mid-century inspired fixture in these rooms,

I’m pretty sure Amber used this sconce in this little guy’s room that she designed,

As I walk through, sit or work in my kitchen daily, I think about what I would do first that would be quick and relatively easy and would make a strategic strike in the right direction. The light fixtures always come to mind right after painting the white washed paneling on the walls.
What lighting though? Well, I’ve narrowed it significantly to schoolhouse flush or enameled factory lights. What image comes to mind first? Come on you must know…

Not too long ago I was looking for a little, affordable desk for my 5-year old DC’s room. I came across the Threshold desk at Target. Affordable…absolutely and it reminded me of other more expensive simple, minimalist desks. It got great reviews and so the decision was easy. I like my choice.

This is Laney’s future big girl room right after the crew started removing the old trim, 5 gazillion phone jacks and repairing the walls. Sorry ’bout the blur.
This is the room after a few days of re-coating the walls with and some new trim. We also added a light.
This is one seriously tiny and dark closet with no door. I expanded to two hanging bars that are each about 24″ long, it’s a good thing she’s a toddler. We also added those two little shelves in the back for baskets and maybe some shoes.
This is the girl that room will belong to,
She told me maybe the blanket on her big girl bed “could be pink, then purple then black”. I said we’ll think about it. Then she said not “light blue or dark blue, that wouldn’t be good”. She is not quite 2 1/2 and she’s got some opinions.
