Friday Favorites: Outdoor Sconces

Now that the weather has turned warm and we are beginning to think about how to enjoy our exterior spaces, lighting is increasingly important.  In order to enjoy your space into the evening and create a nice ambiance for visitors arriving to your home, along with concerns of safety & security, consider replacing your exterior lighting.  Sconces are one of the first things you see driving up to your home and, often, the main source of exterior lighting.  Updating this simple detail can make a world of difference to your home’s curb appeal!

Use the overall style and color scheme of your home as a guide to choosing the fixtures that will best complement your home.  With often urge clients to consider the cleanability factor of glass fixtures and choose a textured or partially obsurce glass to ensure dirt and bugs are not as noticable.  We love all finishes – silvers, bronzes, blacks, coppers – and what is selected will be determined by your other hardware and often the color of your home.

Below are ten of our favorite outdoor fixtures.  Which is right for your home?
