Did You Know Lights Have A Temperature?

Being An Interior Designer, I always get that one question from everyone….

“HOW DO I MAKE MY ROOM LOOK LIKE MY INSPIRATIONAL PICTURE?!?!?”

It’s a lot easier than you think. Interior Designers use a number of principals which fall into the psychological category of our profession.
