Northwest Fall Cure: Light Therapy

Northwest Fall Cure: Light Therapy

Wig3000 finished and sealed the new bath tile in her downstairs bathroom, and it looks amazing.

• Cure Clock: 3 Weeks Remaining
• Assignment: Read pp. 185-204, clean and declutter bathroom, arrange light
• Flickr Pool: Northwest Fall Cure Pool

This week we focus on two things that often go overlooked, but are vitally important to the way we feel in our homes: the bathroom and lighting. The bathroom is where we get clean and ready for the day, so creating a space that is as functional, pleasing to the senses and clutter-free as possible has many potential positive repercussions.

Working on your lighting arrangement is technically part of the One-Room Workout, but if time and budget allow, taking a look at your lighting setup is something I'd recommend for everyone. We've come this far, after all!
