Lights, camera… action! There’s a reason lights are at the beginning of that phrase. Lights announce a celebration, showcase an activity, signal the start of something incredible. Light represents joy and excitement. People are drawn to the “bright lights of a city” because light adds energy and excitement.
Lights create a mood. Dim the lights and it’s romantic. Turn them way up and it’s a party. Add some joyful illumination to your home with decorative wall lamps that immediately breathe new life into your decor. Here are a few captivating wall lamps for Fall/Winter 2020 that make a statement in any room.
1. Elegant Torch Wall Lights
When it comes to fancy wall lights, nothing can compare to a stunning torch lamp. Use head-turning decorative wall lights like this one in an entryway to capture attention the moment friends walk through the door. These designer wall lamps can be placed above a console table, on either side of a mirror or enhancing your favorite wall art. A brass metal finish elevates your decor even further if the artwork or mirror has a brass or gold frame. That would add to the elegance of these torch wall lights and direct the focus to how breathtaking these fancy wall lamps truly are.
If you love the style of a torch light and want a more casual look, choose a black metal finish. In addition to being absolutely gorgeous, this wall lamp offers plenty of decor options as it comes with your choice of metal and you can opt for a clear or colored glass shade. Every shade provides a captivating and unique look.
Design tip: Good things come in pairs, especially when you’re considering wall sconces. When hanging decorative wall lamps, consider more than one. Try hanging a pair of wall sconces in a living room above a fireplace mantel, above bedside tables or in a master bath to create an atmosphere of total luxury and relaxation.
2. Metal wall lamps in vibrant colors
Just as pillows and throws can enhance a room’s decor with pattern and color, so too can decorative wall lights. Today, wall lights are considered accessories that can be used to complement colors in a room, while also providing a much needed source of light. Next time you decide to update a space with a new paint color or window treatments, consider adding colored light fixtures. Designer wall lamps are available in hundreds of colors to beautifully accentuate your home decor. A bold, green wall light would look fabulous in an office or nursery, a sunny yellow wall lamp would brighten a kitchen breakfast nook and an eye-catching orange wall light would fit right in above a child’s craft table.
Design tip: Choose casual, decorative wall lights for the living room to brighten the space with ambient light for family game night, reading and playing video games. Or create a more relaxing environment for listening to music, watching movies or cuddling by the fire. The more soft and warm the lighting, the more soothing the atmosphere.
3. Gorgeous globe wall lamps that can be configured any way you like
You’ve probably seen linear wall lights, picture lights, and wall-skimming sconces used to emphasize a gallery wall or showcase a home’s architectural features, but did you know that you can use fancy wall lights as stand-alone wall art? This allows you to create a unique ambiance in every room. Many wall lights can be hung in multiple directions, for stunning lighting that suits your style and space.
Design tip: Experiment with different looks and choose a finish that complements the feel of the room. A modern black wall light can be elegant in a dining room and casual in a living room. It all depends on the furniture and accessories in the space. If you want a sophisticated wall light, choose brass or gold. These rich metals always add a sense of luxury.
