Dramatic Decorating Effects with Shadow

While walking at the Chicago Botanic Garden I took a few pictures, not even paying attention to the dramatic shadows that the trees had created. After reviewing my photos I was so excited to notice the shadows on the path and started thinking about the role shadow plays in interior design. If you are not using shadows in your home decor you are missing out on some amazing effects that light and objects can create.
