Cheerful Brightness

You’re walking through a field at dawn. The sun peeks up from the horizon, enveloping the entire scene in a warm, bright glow. This is Cheerful Brightness: light that captures the feeling of a smile; the warmth of a sunrise. Use ambient lighting (like sconces or ceiling fixtures) in a dining room or breakfast nook—or any space you spend your days—to lift your spirits and brighten your mood for the day ahead.
