That’s it! You like it warm and cozy, or airy and bright. Keep in mind you don’t have to treat your whole home as per just one method. Although it’s best to keep living areas open to each other in the same “feel”, there is no reason you can’t have light and bright in the main part of the house, and cozy and comfy in the bedroom or bath. Rules are for chickens… be brave and make your small home what YOU want it to be.
