{it's all in the details: bookcase sconces}


Do you have a list of must-haves for your dream home?? I bet you do ... I do too - and boy is it long ;) I actually think I should write out a list in case I ever do get to build/renovate my dream home one day! Well, on that list is this: sconces built into bookcases. I'd love to have a dedicated den/library, and it would have to sport this look. I just adore the cozy feeling, not to mention the practicality that kind of task lighting would give!







Is this detail on your list? What details are a must-have for you??

We have sconces by our bedside for reading in bed and the best thing is that they have "dimmers" which really is great!
love all your images and they look perfect for a library!

What they say it's true about it's all in the details. I would love to have a bookcase like the one in the 2nd pic!

I'm loving this idea - especially those gorgeous ones in the first pic. I'd love these as well, and of course lots of fab books to fill those bookcases! :)

This detail is definitely on my list! We're planning to transform our previous formal dining space into a den/library situation, and that means bookshelves! And scones! (And maybe replacing a window with french doors to the patio.) Glorious images, Nancy!

Love this look! It would give such a nice glow to the room and bookcase!

A library in general is on my dream home must have list. I also have to have one of those rolling ladders with it too!

I think I'm in love with the third library - my dream is to open up the formal living room and dining room up (two of our largest rooms totally unused!) to the kitchen and convert our smallish family room (with fireplace) into our library/office. Now I need to find space for that daybed... Thanks for the inspiration, Cynthia

Books (and no IPads!) and art. Need both.

And a combined library/dining room is a must for my dream home. And a bistro feel kitchen (brick walls) if you recall! (:

How are you holding up? Are you breathing easier, busy bee, and perhaps even seeing visitors - soon!?

Hugs to you,

Mon

nancy I just pinned that first image this morning while perusing Pinterest. I love library lights and when used en masse, even better. I am seriously thinking of replacing my sconces in the family room with something similar in a black finish. happy Tuesday, Miss you, xo kathysue

I completely love this look! Pretty AND functional!

Taylor Greenwalt said...

I love some of these images. Great examples on how to use sconces.

Sheila @SZInteriors said...

I love the function of bookcase sconces, but the first ones go way beyond love of function. Those ones are to die for!!!

Southern Sassie Girls said...

A list? how about a book... Love the idea of the sconces. Our 'library', is my mom's china cabinet I grew up with, that is now in our upstairs hallway. Speaking of which, how would one go about putting lighting in something like that I wonder? Would love to hear any suggestions you may have.

I am proud to say that I would want to barter my whole bedroom for one of those bookshelves!

Tabby said...

The bookshelves sure look really elegant! Anyone who has any of them would definitely spend a lot of time reading books.
