Candle Sconces

I'd really like to purchase some contemporary candle sconces to place on either side of the mirror in our living room. Most of what I've found online are a bit traditional for our taste. John and Sherry's sconces are just what I'm looking for:

Unfortunately, it appears that ZGallerie no longer sells them. Wah wah wah.

This one is fun:

...but it might be a little too blingy for my husband's liking.

I love the modern design and color of this one:

...but it's about 5 times more than I'd like to pay.

Any ideas?

Also, who would like to buy me this fabulous rug from CSN for our living room?

The 5'x8' is only $532...

I never know how often I should wash our sheets. It ranges from once a week to every other week. I normally wash them in cold water so they will last longer, but this article really has me wondering.

How often do you wash your bedding?

{I've also added this question to my weekly poll, located at the top, right-hand corner of this page}

Love the rug and ALL the sconces. I am on the search for some too :) I think Pottery Barn has some great ones!

I'm a big lover of candles as well. It totally sets the mood.

As for sheet-washing, I try and do it once a week, but sometimes it gets to once every 2 weeks. Usually, never longer than that. I wouldn't worry too much about that article. Germs are EVERYWHERE. In the end, we do the best we can. I try not to think about what lurks in our bed (especially since our dog sleeps with us!)

I love candle sconces and was actually just looking for some! The ones I am drawn to lean more to the romantic/traditional side than yours but I still LOVE your ideas! Maybe we should do a modern home/romantic home house tour post sometime. Wouldn't that be fun!?!?

As for your rug, I think it would look fantastic at your place. My friend has a similar one---maybe the same(?)) and you can see it live and in action at her blog here:

I feel like your place and her place would get along well! :)

also i'd look for rugs at urban or hsn (i have a nate berkus rug that looks just like it for way less)

Sconces are good for bathroom designs. You'll feel more relaxed like you would in a spa, because of the candles. We have hand forged iron sconces in our bathroom. My mom bought it when we had a home make over last year. She also bought hand forged home accents for our bed rooms and kitchen.
