Hurricane Candle Sconce Creates Ambiance

Horchow's Hurricane Sconce

A good lighting plan includes ambient lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting. Since everyone knows we all look better in candle light, why not include some for your lighting and decor needs? Today’s Save or Splurge features a beautiful candle sconce from Horchow.  These would look beautiful in a living room, dining room, or even the foyer. I tend to use them in pairs on either side of a mirror or piece of art. It gives the entire wall decor more presence. Since the Horchow sconce retails for $395, buying two of them might be difficult. Of course, The Design Diva has found a more affordable option so you can cover your entire wall with sconces for what you’d pay for one of the other ones. This option can be purchased from Kirkland’s for a paltry $29.99. Now that is what I call Sensibly Chic!
