As an interior designer, I certainly understand the importance of lighting a home. I always make sure there is sufficient ambient, task and mood lighting in any given space.
As a design psychology coach, of equal concern is that a home also takes into consideration everything needed to ensure health and well-being for all who live in the home.
I recently ran across an article written by Houzz contributor, MIKE ELGAN, who shares some very interesting information on how lighting can improve the overall quality of you and your family’s lives.
As always, when designing your home, the needs of everyone living with you need to be considered. For instance, older adults sleeping in a room devoid of any light,could become a safety hazard if they need to get up during the night. Solution? The sleeping mask that can easily be removed before getting out of bed! Enjoy.

We tend to think of lighting choices as a matter of personal preference, something that’s part of the lamp-shopping checklist. But it turns out that the most important lighting decisions have nothing to do with lamps. And lighting decisions can actually make or break your family’s health, happiness and well-being.

Until next time…
Blessings from my home to yours,
Dedicated to helping you live your rooms—not the other way around
