Inspiring Light + Airy Living Spaces

Inspiring Light + Airy Living Spaces

If you're a fan of entertaining, you know that the living room is one of the most important spaces in the home. If your guests are not mingling in the kitchen, chances are they will find their way to the living room. As much fun as a dark cozy room is while you're binge watching Netflix, having a light and airy living space will make your home look elegant and inviting. Obtaining that bright open room doesn't have to mean you stick to just white. Here are some examples of beautiful living spaces that range from neutral colors to pops of blues and everything in between. 

 

Studio McGee

This beautiful Studio McGee living room is the perfect example of a light and airy room that isn't all white. The beige sofa and blush accent pillows create a soft pops of color while the white and gold accents brighten up the room. Dark floors don't have to be the downfall of a bright room. Add an area rug in a lighter tone for an instant airy feel. // Photo from Studio McGee

That light airy feeling doesn't always come from just furniture. Use the architecture of the room to make your living space feel brighter. Exposed beams or even just decorative beams add a focal point to the ceiling, causing the room to feel bigger. Large windows and lots of natural light are key when you're looking for that bright and open feel.  // Photos from Emily Henderson

Oversize mirrors and plenty of plants are another sure fire way to brighten a room. Mirrors are great because they will make the room feel more open and reflect that beautiful natural light. When mirror shopping, bigger is always better and don't be afraid to play with shapes. Adding pops of bright color (but not to many) will make the room feel fun and more relaxed. // Photos from Craftberry Bush

When you are trying to brighten up a room, the obvious choice is to go all white, but it doesn't have to be boring. This gorgeous room from Erin Fetherston pulls together classic white and tan, giving the room depth without taking away from the light color scheme. The light wood elements throughout and a touch of greenery add a natural feel to the room. // Photos from Erin Fetherston 

 

 

Studio McGee

Most people think the only way to achieve that light and airy feel is to steer clear of darker pieces. This inviting Studio McGee living space feels open and inviting but is chalked full of pieces that are a bit darker than usual. Light throw pillows tie the navy sofa in with the white and wood chairs and the stunning oversize art. Pops of dark wood throughout create a cozy feel. // Photos from Studio McGee
