Night + Day


I'm always fascinated by the effect of lighting on a space. It has such an impact on the mood and how you'll be able to use the room. Sometimes I feel that certain rooms or colours look better at a certain time of day. Right now my main entrance hall is a warm yellow, which I think looks beautiful and welcoming at night, but during the day just seems too... yellow.
I love how this space transitions so beautifully from day to night - bright open and airy by day, but at night, cozy and sultry. Both simply stunning, and the perfect blend of indoors and out.

Absolutely! I am a huge believer that lighting and/or light is the most powerful tool in decorating any given space!

Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a place like that, even if it were just an escape. Beautiful.

Lighting is such an important element -- too many times, it is made to be such a tiny element, when as you can see here, it makes such an impact. Well said, Sharalee...thanks for sharing this great space!
