One of the few frustrations I have with my house is its lack of light. A few rooms have gone 100+ years without ever having had overhead lights installed. I know there’s a ideal number of floor, table and swag lamps that will create a warm glow and fill the space with light. I haven’t hit that ideal number yet, but am up to 5 lamps in my living room and may need to stop soon.
Today I stopped at a little antique shop that almost always has good lamps. I found this adorable vintage lamp with original fiberglass shade that looks a bit like an old oil lamp. It’s just the perfect blend of faux antique and mid century modest to complement my house’s eclectic mix of styles.
