Although scones are popular year-round, cranberry-orange scones drizzled in white chocolate are an excellent fit for the holidays, especially Christmas. For a savory alternative, try a scone mixed with onions, bacon and cheddar cheese.
Influences from architect Frank Lloyd Wright are seen in this powder room with the rhythmic play of the decorative vertical wood ladder detail, horizontal stacked bands of solid surface material and wood for the vanity. Additional warmth and interest were added with three stacked metal horizontal sconces. The vertical band of mirror visually expands the space, and the chrome faucet disappears into the mirror, creating a waterfall experience into the sculptural stone sink.
A small bathroom is a great place to go bold. The painted door and moldings accent the color palette and lend a rich, high-end designer vibe. The high-gloss finish on the vanity adds shine and durability to the piece, while the open shelving underneath gives the illusion of more space.
Cabinets, cabinets, cabinets! This well-lit, warm bathroom has an abundance of cabinets in which the family can store their belongings.

To add ample light to their sleeping area, Briana and Buzz opted for wall-mounted, plug-in sconces that don't require permanent hard wiring. By simply screwing the attachment to the wall, then plugging the cord into a nearby outlet, the look of custom, permanent lighting is achieved without long-term commitment or the steep cost of hiring an electrician. Another advantage of wall-mounted sconces is that table space is freed up, allowing surfaces to be used for other purposes.
