Bright interiors: how natural light energizes a room


Light and Bright interiors

Bright interiors are beautiful interiors! There is nothing like natural light.  Natural light has the power to completely energize and change the mood of a room.  When we were house shopping, one of the first elements of a home I’d look for was natural light.  I’d pay attention to window quantity, size, placement, and any exterior overhang.  One of the best home improvements we ever made was replacing our small rancher living room window with a full length window.  Believe it or not, ever since enlarging that window and knocking out a dividing wall, I no longer need to use my light therapy lamp in the winter.

Below are some example rooms that I though demonstrated the beauty and transformative power of natural light.

What a treat to wake up with the morning light streaming in.  A simple white curtain allows the filtered light through and allows for privacy at night.

Lofts take the cake for bright interiors.  Open concept layouts, high ceilings, and lots of windows make the most of natural light.
