    I have a small window - but basically a good-sized room (upstairs) - I used "Daylight" bulbs and mirrors strategically placed - and off-white walls and let my machines, shelves and fabric provide the rest of the decor. Just an idea. :-)

    Even with a large window in my sewing room, I have a table lamp that lights the ceiling, a floor lamp, two task lights and another table lamp. Just can't even perform well on a cloudy or overcast day. It depresses me dreadfully. Up lights are a great way to create an ambiace more like sunlight than lights focused downward..

    Do you have a one story house? If so, I would put in a 'solar tube'. I did that with my second floor studio, and it is now so bright I don't have to use lights during the day on the 'dark end' away from the windows.

    Tartan is right. No sun means no fading. But if you must have it, check out a sun tunnel. I think they run around $100. Basically they catch the sun and transmit the light through a tube right into an interior room.

    They sell tapestries that have beautiful scenes on them too that you may like.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place...the End Times.

    A large mirror might bring some brightness to your area!
