The sconce above is from RH, and I love the script on the walls where I snapped this.

It’s thrilling to see how Brooke Giannetti mixes old with new, including the Aidan Gray sconces above in her gorgeous dining room at Patina Farm. Have you picked up your copy of Patina Living yet?

Brooke’s unforgettable diminutive antique door to her laundry room takes my breath away, but so does the sconce!

    Dear Michele….thank you again for answering my email regarding the French sconces and providing so much inspiration for us! Exactly what I was looking for! Also…thank you for the meaningful quotes that you post as well….today’s first quote from John Piper especially hit home for me! Thank you!

    A plethora of amazing possibilities for sconces! And the John Piper quote is something we all should reflect on daily.

      So much wisdom in that quote – thanks so much for playing along!

    Michele: I love how you showcase all these lovely rooms. I couldn’t help notice in your house that the hallway lighting seems to appear flush and very modern looking. I am wanting to redo the hallway lights in my house which I would call quasi French coastal cottage. Do you have any suggestions?

      Hi Paula. Are you referring to the second photo in this post with the script on the wall? I snapped the photo at RH in Chicago (3Arts building) so that sconce is available from RH, and there are similar sconces further down in the post. Let me know if you’re referring to another post with my hallway. I have modern flush sconces in my stairway I can tell you about if you like. 🙂

      Ahhhhh. Got it! They are those simple 6″ recessed can lights (https://rstyle.me/+f9VAlRA1C2lqaC8Cm-C3kg) and were already in here in the house when we bought it. Let me know if you have any other questions – love helping. 🙂

    Michele: This is beginning to be a who’s on first routine. LOL. I was originally asking for suggestions from you for hall lighting for my house. Now, if you were to do something in YOUR HALLWAY that was a French country look and not the canned lights what would you do. Thx

    Just found your site & am thrilled to see French wall sconces. LOVED the Maya Angelou quote. Intend to share it (and your site!) with others!
