3. Light

The element of light can refer to natural or man-made sources. Light goes hand in hand with texture. It is also closely associated with color. Without a light source, color does not exist. Light sets the mood in a room. Subdued lighting imparts a cozy, romantic feel. Rooms bathed in natural light feel airy and cheerful.

Light also plays a functional role in interior design. It is used to illuminate work and reading areas. Light is also employed to emphasize certain objects in a room, such as pieces of art.
