It was a sad day this past Sunday at 2A.M.

We no longer were on daylight savings time. The long dark days of winter have arrived.  Here in the Pacific Northwest, we FEEL and SEE the loss of light acutely.

As human beings, we need natural light to live and thrive. Otherwise God would have made us all into Moles, very happy to live in dark holes.

You can probably tell I suffer a bit from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). But I know I’m not the only one…quite the contrary.

If you feel like me, have you ever considered having a “light” room?  They’re more commonly known as sun rooms, but for those of us who live in the higher reaches of the Northern Hemisphere, “light” rooms are a more accurate description.

The other great thing about a “light” room is it allows us to experience nature more fully and that is nothing short of a balm for our spirits. And additions like this are located in the public spaces of our home so no window coverings are needed How sweet is that? Just light and nature wrapping its self around us.

The photos you’re seeing were designed by London architect PAUL McANEARY and shown in HOME DECOR DECORATING IDEAS.

It’s a beautiful contemporary design that makes you feel like you’re living in a glass house…don’t worry about the stones!

Take a look and see what you think. If you’re planning on any remodeling, a “light” room could give you a better emotional return on your investment than say, re-doing the family room.

Just a thought.
