3. bet on natural light

Arrange your interiors so that you have the opportunity to experience natural light for as long as possible. Large, panoramic windows, glazing, open spaces are conducive to this. When designing lighting, keep in mind the possibility of installing light sources of different colors (different for work and for rest), solutions that allow you to diffuse light, brighten and dim it.

4. calm and tranquility
