If you’ve been following along for a while, you know I have this thing for black and white and #thefarmhausproject is no exception. In fact, the Farmhaus is going to involve me using more black than I’ve ever used in a project. I’m not afraid of you Black. For years my wardrobe has primarily consisted of black. I blame it on my years spent in NYC. But black can tend towards the oppressive if it’s not balanced out. White is classic. Grey is a natural match. Wood warms it up. And Brass? I think it does two things, it warms it up and injects a touch of chic. I know, I know. I want our Farmhaus to be modern rustic Scandinavian, but who said it can’t also be a a little chic.
The Farmhaus has many lighting needs and not all of them involve Black and Brass, I promise. But in searching high and low for my perfect lighting solutions, I thought I’d share my top choices for Black and Brass sconces. I could have featured so many more if I’d also included sconces with two lights and three lights, but I decided to keep things simple and compare apples with apples and stick with a mostly minimalist look. Here are my favorite modern black and brass single sconces. Hint, I’m actually using TWO of these lights at the Farmhaus, but you’ll have to wait and see to find out where and how it all comes together. Prices start at just $30 and go up to $350, so there’s definitely a black and brass sconce for every budget.
