See Things in a Different Light
"For me, a luxurious kitchen is one that has good lighting. You need a well-lit countertop for food preparation; the eating area should be lit separately, with different lighting circuits that can be adjusted to suit your needs. Add candlelight to increase intimacy in the dining area." —Tino Zervudachi, author of Tino Zervudachi: A Portfolio (Pointed Leaf Press)
