Natural lighting through windows has a very calming and peaceful effect on our moods and emotions whereas a lack of light and even poor artificial lighting can trigger depression. To improve your mood, maximize as much natural light from the sun as possible. If you have a room that does not allow for much natural light, if any, try using light fixtures with softer light bulbs to help. Or, use mirrors strategically to help reflect the natural light around the room.
Decorative elements also do wonders for creating a warm space in cold weather. Most country and log homes have wooden or stone flooring. While beautifully eye catching, these flooring options can be unbearably cold when the outside temperature drops. Melting snow can also make bare floors a safety hazard. Decorative rugs are the perfect solution against both issues.
