This article should have at least mentioned the importance of proper lighting. I have been into so many houses where the only lighting comes from the ceiling. Very nice if the effect you are going for is "Kmart cozy". And try to settle into a chair with a good book. Honestly, I think this all stems from the younger gen not having much experience with the written word anymore, unless it's coming from a device. I have lit devices too, but nothing is more comfortable than curling up next to a warm lamp to do your reading. I know young people who don't want lamps in their house because then they will have to clean them. Wish I understood that.
