Crystal chandeliers, old converted oil lamps, beaded lamp shades, and vintage sconces all evoke a sense of nostalgia and elegance when lighting a home. Lighting expresses not only your mood but your taste as well. I enjoy trapsing through flea markets and tag sales looking for that diamond in the rough-a vintage lamp or chandelier in need of some TLC and still sparkling with crystal prisms or sporting its original gas switches.
