The Seven Elements of Great Design: 1- Light

Such an important idea and such an esoteric one.  Light shapes space more than anything else and also helps direct our attention to the things we want to highlight.  Light can be natural or artificial, and both must be thought of.  Natural light changes and shapes your space throughout the day and then the artificial light kicks in to create a mood at night.  Texture is light’s best friend.  They play very nicely together in a riotous game of chiaroscuro.
