Need help choosing light fixtures for old house

2 months ago

I’m feeling overwhelmed and could use some guidance!

My 1900 Victorian needs a refresh, including new light fixtures in many of the rooms. I think there should be some continuity between rooms but I’m not sure how to achieve that. Same metal color? Something else?

I’ll need to select several wall sconces plus a few ceiling lights, chandeliers, and ceiling fans.

Given the fact that my house is old, I feel like I should stay somewhat true to its original style, but that may be difficult since I much prefer clean lines over fussy Victorian details.

I added a few pictures of wall sconces I like, just to provide some context. Are there any basic guidelines for choosing lighting for a whole house, or sources you would recommend? Many thanks!
