Lighting is a crucial design element in bathrooms, especially those packed with black surfaces, which absorb light. For effective, flattering light, consider having diffused-glass sconces installed, centered on each side of the vanity mirror. When lit, the filtered white light evenly illuminates the face without any harsh shadows. Furthermore, by adding dimmers to the sconces, the entire bathroom can take on an ambient, spa-like feeling at night.
Weathered-looking cabinets and tasteful sconces fit right into this bathroom's Old World aesthetic. A framed mirror carries the same tones as the cabinets, a color scheme complemented by the vanity countertop and tile backsplash.
