One of the nicest things about putting lots of time and effort into creating a home, is coming home. After recently spending 4 nights away staying in a new but bland and pokie hotel room and waking up to look out at a tall grey building next door every morning, it was good to come home.
Never underestimate the uplifting power of natural light. Research, (I can't remember whose) suggests that people are drawn to interior spaces that have lots of natural light. In a standard 4 wall room it is always good to have windows on 2 of the 4 walls if possible. In this photo of our hallway natural light comes flooding in from the skylight roof. Lovely, but a bit chilly in winter!
