This is an adaptation of the famous novel by Louisa May Alcott about the March family and their coming of age journey.  Ms. Caudle's set was a delightful balance of the warm home interior and the cool outside world.  I lit the exterior with more extreme angles of light to differentiate between these areas of the set.  Jo's attic sanctum was a particular joy to light.
