Great lighting can really make or break a home. So, choosing light fixtures that make a statement, or updating boring and dated fixtures can be a fun project to undertake, and one that is pretty affordable.
Here in Portland we have some cool lighting stores to choose from, including Schoolhouse Electric.
Specializing in handmade period lighting peices, Schoolhouse Electric adds the artist's touch to vintage inspired fixtures, shades and hardware.
If you want to update your older home with traditional lighting from the era, or you're a vintage decor junkie, their products will definetly inspire you.
Don't live in Portland? Don't worry, you can order from their shop online.
