When my husband and I first started decorating our house, with pauses and sidelong glances, we asked each other what we thought of the light shades. Thankfully we both had the same reaction - the thought of modern lighting in our retro bungalow made us flinch. We agreed that it would be best to keep the old art deco light shades, replacing the one or two modern anomalies with something similar. I've since bought a couple of additions from TradeMe and now our home is filled with deco shades that compliment the ceiling moldings. They may not shine as bright as modern LED lights, but I see this as a flattering bonus. At any rate, it's a good excuse to buy some pretty floor and table lamps.
