Hollywood Regency - Sconces

We weren’t surprised in the least to discover that the word sconce has its roots in the French word esconce, a word of many meanings but for the most part indicating covering and protection. Rest assured, if there is a room in need a little TLC, where protection from averageness is in order, the Hollywood Regency style sconce would come to the rescue. Mixing traditional and modern influences is part of what makes decorating in this style so rewarding. By placing modern pieces in a traditional style, the transitional bridge is crossed beautifully. To place a modern sconce in a traditional way, mount it ¾ up the height of a wall and in a hallway setting, place sconces an equal distance apart as the height from the floor.
