But what if you don’t have a window? Get ready to make one—or something like it.
By using a backlight to illuminate the wall behind your computer the soft spread of light eases our eyes. Directional lamps and spotlights do the trick— creating a bounce effect as the backdrop to your computer screen.
And for dark spaces with more room for change, a semi-transparent, white, room divider as a diffuser with a frosted flood light behind it, can be used to create faux window light. Think giant vertical lamp shade.
This works as well for solo spaces as it does for small to medium-sized shared spaces.
