a sneak peek & a question

i may be 
the slowest decorator
in january i purchased a rug from homegoods
then came the sofa

the carlisle sofa from pottery barn

and finally in april we painted the walls
i had home depot match a color i mixed together from different martha stewart samples (to match a color in the rug)
then overtime i slowly added
• curtains
 some artwork
 a few accessories

now i'm trying to pick out wall sconces 
& i'm getting nowhere

i'd like antique brass & a plug in
if they were hardwired
i'd be very limited in re-arranging furniture
& i love to re-arrange (don't we all?)

so here is a sneak peek of my unfinished living room

the sconces will go on either side
of my homegoods mirror

now for my question

which sconce would look best?

option a — boston functional library wall light 
circa lighting
 option b — weston arc sconce 
pottery barn
 option c — swivel head wall lamp 
circa lighting
 option d — griffith swing arm light
circa lighting

here are a 2 hardwired options
just because i love them :)
bryant sconce from circa lighting
ra single wall light from circa lighting

so what do you think?
which sconces do you like?
i need your opinions
& new ideas are welcomed! 

have a great day! -e


  1. Your livingroom looks fantastic! I am a slow decorator too...I have the hardest time making decisions...mostly because I really don't have a knack for decorating! Anyway, my favorite is the bryant sconce.

  2. What a beautiful room and I vote with Kerri...Bryant!!
    have a happy day erin

  3. I think the Bryant sconces would work well, too. Your living room is gorgeous, Erin. You might have to compete with me for the slowest decorator though, lol. I feel like I've got design ADD sometimes. Clearly your slow and steady pace works for you. The room is beautiful.

  4. i like a or b best. good luck!

  5. ohhhh, I vote D or A. Fun! :)

  6. Just found your blog and I love it! Can I ask which fabric you chose in the Carlisle and whether you like it? I am trying to decide between the washed linen cotton in stone and the twill in parchment! Thanks! Tracy

  7. Tracy... i chose the brushed canvas in the color honey. i love the texture of the fabric and the warm tones in the color. it works well with my wood floors! happy shopping!
