Here in the so-called City of Light, it stays light so late in Paris in the summer that on a nice day we don't turn on our lights at all. The rest of the year, we like to make the most of natural light by keeping curtains off windows that aren't exposed to neighboring eyes. Positioning mirrors to reflect and increase natural light. Leaving walls uncluttered so that the light can flood it with unexpected shadows.
What are your tricks for making the most of natural light?
