At last, the fun part of the renovation: decorating.
As always, the bathroom is the focus of my attentions – not least because it presented an opportunity to indulge my fetish for art deco lighting.
Above the bathtub: black porcelain sconces with skyscraper shades from Rejuvenation.com.
Flanking the sink are a pair of period sconces with curved chrome bases from Gallerie Decollect in Port Hope.
The period sconces were rewired by a gentleman at Romela Antique Lighting who calls himself “The Lamp Doctor” – so the wiring for these fixtures (unlike some of the other vintage pieces in my collection) is all perfectly safe and modern . I’m not taking any chances with bathroom lighting – water and old wiring don’t mix.
