“Cloud Person” – Bring in the Light
With the current state of the economy, a good night’s rest to help neutralize stress and reenergize for the coming day is more important than ever . According to Karl Lohnes, interior designer, TV host and style editor at Style at Home magazine, each of us falls into one of two categories when it comes to sleep habits. The first type is categorized as a “Cave Person” and consists of those who need window fashions that make the room pitch black in the morning. The second type – a “Cloud Person” – is someone who needs light to come through in the morning in order to wake up.
