One thing that makes a whole difference of the mood of an area, is how much light gets inside. As it turns out, one of the details that is of fundamental importance are the windows. Open areas, big windows, are, for me, one of the *brightest* ideas ever ( wink, wink ). It feels like living outside, and makes my whole day a lot easier when I have to work inside. House Right, the chapter on windows begins with this statement: “Windows are more than a means of providing light and ventilation. They are the ‘eyes’ of the house. They connect to the world around it, framing a view from the inside and offering a glimpse of interior life to the passerby. Windows, more than any other single element, will determine the character of your home”.
