Sunshine Inside and Out, New Interior Decorating Options, for Those that Love the Sun All Day

For me, sunshine is so important, it makes me smile. Just think, if we could harness sunlight indoors, not only would we cut back on energy bills by twenty percent, we will also be able to nourish ourselves with indoor gardens, that heal. Here are futuristic indoor sunlight options (some visionary research projects) that may become more widely available with time (going counter-clockwise)~

  1. This indoor chandelier is brilliant, I’d love to see this available in different sizes and shapes, staying with the cosmic theme.
  2. “Turn off the light ~ here comes the sun” is the motto of Parans, who states that their goal is to collect natural sunlight, distributed through fiber optic cables to office work spaces. Parans was recently awarded the Climate Solver prize from WWF and GlobalFOCUS. Pictured here is “The first series of Parans Luminaires, the Parans L1 gives the sensation of standing under the foliage of Birch trees when the sun strikes through…made of thin semi-transparent acrylic sheets. The uniquely light and transparent design make them spectacular to use in a broad variety of interiors, be it an art gallery..” or any gathering space, it comes in three geometrical variations to suit different interiors.
  3. This dreamy interactive wallpaper (envisioned years back and still in the design and production process) works like a display, “giving you the possibility to change patterns and content as you wish. Resistors placed behind the paper surface make the color of the paper change according to your fantasy: you can dim lights, turn on home appliances, read email on the wall, view pictures taken with a camphone,” via World Changing, who predicted that these futurists have been forecasting future interiors which will include very. bright options powered freely by the sun.

Now, don’t you think these decorating options will help us feel really good about being indoors so much? We will even feel happier and healthier with Vitamin D that we soak in from the sun.
