Hey Anderson,
Yes, they are painted a light blue- Ben Moore HC-147 Woodlawn Blue. I always suggest my clients add a paint color or textured wallpaper for interest to the back of bookshelves. It is a more custom look setting off objects and books.
Thank you for your interest in this room and my work!

Hello-
Thank you for your question and interest in this room. Above the fireplace is an oil painting done by a local Charleston artist, Laura Lloyd Fontaine. In addition to originals, she offers her work in giclee, which is a print of the original. Her's are unique in that she will paint ver the print with a brush to give life and texture. The work then appears to be original. This enables more people to obtain her beautiful works. Please visit her website for additional Low Country landscapes - www.lauralloydfontaine.com.

They are made of wood-curvy finials-and metal. The color is black. I have 14" tall battery operated candles. I purchased those from Restoration hardware. I had wax candles, but they were dangerous so close to the wall. I'll look at the email in the AM.
Thank you,
Lorraine

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shoshana Gosselin added this to Take a Shine to Candle Sconces
Warm up a gathering room. Install wall candle sconces in a family room and create a cozy haven. Your room will get a relaxing glow from both lamps and candles. Use large wall sconces so you can go bigger with the candles.
