When I look at the images below, 
I feel the same effect as when I look at a Rembrandt painting.

The light not only highlights a certain aspect of the room, 
but it also casts a soft, very appealing glow that, 
at least for me, 
creates feelings of serenity, happiness, and comfort.

What kind of ambiance does lighting create in your home?

  1. i LOVE natural light - when i renovated my house - EVERY SINGLE light switch has a dimmer - i LOVE dim lights to relax

  2. Beautiful Silvia...light is so important in a house. Natural light by day and light by lamps in the evening. Soft light is best for relaxing in our home :)

  5. Oh the beauty of natural light! I try to keep my home as bright as possible. My work desk is also situated near a South facing window so I can absorb all of that warmth, beauty and serenity. :)

  6. Natural, relajante...adorables los espacios!

  7. Ambiance....a word I use on a daily basis! I drive my husband crazy b/c I'm always turning on the lights, picture light, lighting candles in rooms no one is even in.

    I think the room should be "ready"....for whomever might come along.
