6. Cool Colors
Pastel blue hues and light gray monotones are great color combinations for that cool ambiance.
7. Pendant Lighting
Pendant or hanging lights are perfect solutions when the ceilings are too high and using pin lights is not feasible.
8. Clerestories Only
If privacy is your thing but you want that natural daylight to come, do away with normal height windows and just go with clerestories.
9. Some Character
Old leather couches have a tendency to accumulate battle scars of the years. For the keen eye, this creates design character and makes the couch more stylish in a way.
10. Clever Concealment
Ventilation systems can be cleverly concealed using varnished wooden panels and dropped ceilings.
