Nothing Ordinary About It

Okay, I am officially at the point where I have to order my final lighting selection for the cabin bathroom. I have been going back and forth for months and have narrowed it down to three options.

Taping out the layout of the vanity and medicine cabinets (they will be recessed into the wall and flush) made it clear to me in a way that the renderings couldn’t tell me that we only need two sconces – one above each of the medicine cabinets. Initially, we could do three totals with one on either side in the middle at or slightly above eye level.

I ruled that out quickly after seeing the vanity’s length. With the space left after installing both medicine cabinets, it would just look too crowded. Plus, the ceilings are pretty high, so there is plenty above each, which makes a wow moment. While we are at it, I love the wooden beam ceiling. I literally couldn’t have paid for a cooler detail. I’m so glad I get to restore it. Screams!

Okay, so here are my new top three contenders after changing my mind like three different times. I am digging the Marie Sconce. The elongated gently curving goose neck is a fun twist on a traditional goose neck lamp. I love the overly exposed pearl orb too. I feel like each sink will feel like a moment with these above them. They come in at $515 ea ch – I know, not cheap. I would consider these in matte black to align with the rest of the hardware, including these faucets.

The pearl flush mount is also a slightly more modern and unassuming approach. These will go fabulous with the rest of the hardware and provide a warm, gentle light without being too fussy. They are slightly more affordable also in Matte Black at $399 each. So that’s always nice.

Lastly, and more of a statement, is the Ripple at $400 each in matte black or a fun turmeric color to add some flare to the space. The whimsy of the mushroom shape for a cabin has been totally intriguing. Can these little mushroom sconces grow on the wall above the medicine cabinets? I love to make a statement that leaves people thinking in each room I do – I feel like these would do that without feeling too gimmicky. I love the thought of these in numeric for a punch of color to juxtapose the green tile too.

On a different note, I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for easy and delicious dinner recipes. One of my favorite hearty dinner recipes is a lasagne. It’s such a great dish, but it can be so time-consuming. Luckily, I am sharing three of my favorite no-boil and no-bake recipes for lasagne. They are quick, easy, and so freaking delicious! Check out more of my favorite recipes here.
