Hi Jon. Thanks a lot. I have been browsing to get some ideas for the apartment renovation i am planning. I will stick to white walls and light colored floor since it's a small apartment bedroom 11x18 and living room 12x20. The overall look is modern. I am to map the idea of fine grain light to warm (caramel, honey) color hard wood floors to a particular product.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

While stairs are ideal for skylights (what can go above a stair anyway?), they are are also well suited for living rooms and large spaces that may need more natural light than windows provide. Many of the relevant skylights on Houzz are actually located above fireplaces. This examples illustrates that framing these skylights along walls can be tricky; here the structure is not removed but boxed out with drywall to meld with the minimal walls and ceilings.
