Darkness & shadows

  A traditional Japanese tea house balanced darkness and light to produce an atmosphere of ease and calm.
 Shadows and dimness serve to settle the mind.

 In modern houses it is possible to modulate the amount of light allowed into a room.
 Voiles and curtains can be adjusted to adjust the mood.

 Bright lighting and flickering screens are not relaxing.
 Avoid the hypnotic dance of light.
 Embrace darkness and shadow.
