Lately I am consumed with gold sconces as well as black taper candles. This frequently occurs to me when I get something stuck in my head — now I can’t discover it anywhere! I’m sure I’ve seen this ideal combo in numerous magazines however a flip with my stock turned up nothing. If you’ve found black tapers in a beautiful gold sconce, let me know!
A browse with home & Home’s archives lead me to Canadian expat Thomas Wiggins’ foyer in his 18th century English manor in the U.K. It’s a bit as well conventional for my taste however I like the sconces as well as black tapers flanking the antique mirror. I dream of this on either side of an uncomfortable jut-out in my bit apartment.
Jenna Lyons, the uber-stylish innovative director of J. team who was featured in Domino magazine, has black tapers in her living space chandelier so I believe I’m onto something.
And Eddie Ross’s laid-back country table setting photographed for on the internet magazine Lonny becomes much more stylish as well as stylish with those long black candles.
Check out the two black tapers in black candleholders on the top of Tori Mellott’s bookshelf in her old apartment. She was one of the impossibly trendy editors of Domino magazine — her area is much more my style.
Leave it to my work friend Michael Penney, with an eagle eye for cast-off treasures. He discovered these burnished brass sconces at a flea market. Can you see the cost tag? It states $89 for the pair as well as I am in love! as well as they’re in my budget, which is even better.
Generally speaking, I have truly bad timing. now that Halloween is over, many black tapers that were around few weeks back are long gone.
