letting in the light

So many of us are taking more photos of our homes, even those who may not have had an interest in interiors before the rise of Instagram and apps like Snapchat are now sharing more of their lives and homes on social media.

What you may have noticed by now is that natural lighting is quite essential for well lit photos with a more realistic and flattering coloring.

I imagine every Instagrammer’s dream home is one with generous skylights and large windows, at least it’s a dream for me. Even if you prefer more moody and dramatic shadows and soft lighting having ample amounts of natural sunlight is key for distinct shadows and soft beams of light that weave themselves through plants and around sofa corners.

A perfect example above, from Odilon Creations, has large windows that cast warm light and the cool colored interiors.
