You know about comfort food, but what about comfort lighting?
Believe it or not, one of the best ways to keep your house comfortable is vintage lighting. Visit any home which has been restored, and one of the items which always seem to garner attention are the vintage lights. One because they are beautiful, of course, but two because they use a nice lower wattage, incandescent warm glow bulbs. They are functional, but act more like a painting, or work of art on the wall. They add function and beauty to the home. No fluorescent can ever give off that kind of charm. And, perhaps obvious, but they belong. As in, they fit the time the house was created. There is a certain jarring feeling when one comes across a light that just does not fit. A 1972 light in a 1902 house. You may not see it right off, but you feel it instantly, something isn't right.
