Bring in colour with table lamps.
"I always go for table lamps on my bedside tables rather than sconces for a number of reasons," explains Toronto textile designer Bev Hisey. "Firstly, I don't like seeing the wiring of a pair of sconces, so unless you have planned ahead with your electrician, table lamps are definitely the way to go. Secondly, table lamps also give you a little more flexibility when it comes to choosing artwork or decorative pieces for over the bed. Thirdly, switching out table lamps is a simple way to update and refresh your bedroom (or any other room)."
