Light and Airy Decor

Creating a light and airy decor means emphasizing natural light and the sense of space in a room. Even if your room is not filled with natural light and blessed with tall ceilings, you can still create a light and airy décor with a few simple tricks.

Some rooms feel airy because they open onto the outside world, blurring the lines between indoors and out. Bring the outdoors in with sheer window treatments or bare windows if privacy is not an issue.

Loads of white and happy colorful accents can create a light, airy décor. Furniture, like the vintage wire chairs designed by Harry Bertoia, takes up little visual space, keeping the feeling light. The ceiling light above the table is a nice added touch.

For light, airy decor white furniture in any style sets the mood. Clean lines and minimal accessories keep the room feeling airy despite dark, overscale photographs on the wall.

Sun-filled kitchens with white cabinetry and furniture define light and airy. Shiny metallic pendant lights sparkle in the light. Open storage, for plates and platters, keep things feeling airy.

Very high ceilings give a room a sense of space. A monochrome palette and low profile seating can give the illusion of more space in any room.

White washed floors and white walls provide a light, airy space for richer colored furnishings and accessories. Even gray can feel light and airy when balanced with creams and whites.

The palest washes of color, blues, pinks, lavenders, can create a light, airy palette than isn’t monochromatic. Brighter accents of color add cheer to a light and airy room.

Beach inspired colors, soft blues, pale yellows, and warm creams, work well in an light and airy décor. Continuing the color palette throughout an open concept living and dining area makes the space feel larger. And after dark, there’s a beautiful array of light fixtures (chandeliers, wall sconces, and table lamps) to cast a warm glow over the space.
