Lighting

Harmony

Environment

Try to avoid white fluorescent lighting which studies have proven increases eye strain, affects hormone levels, and could worsen depression.

Can you remember moving a lamp or a chair across the room and feeling a sense of, ah, sweet relief! It wasn’t an accident; it was science or, at least, Feng-Sui a practice governing design for thousands of years.
