Whether you want to create a harmonious style, or you want to bring a feminine touch to your current décor creating a light and airy space could be just the right move for your home. Here are a few ways you can create a light and airy space without using mainly shades of white.
For a light and airy dining room with a bit of quirk pair a dark, rich wood table with transparent seating. There is something quirky about transparent seats that seem to bring a little something extra to a room. To complete the light and airy feel add a fun chandelier or wall sconces further brighten the space.
Pale Neutral Tones
Using pale neutral tones brings a brightening effect to any room without the need of using specific white shades. There is something very open and welcoming about neutrals especially when they are used as the main color wave in the room. Pair your pale neutral tones with blond wood flooring for a seamless contrast.
We love the idea of having a coastal decorated home, particularly when you have an open floor plan. An open floor plan lends itself to be open and airy yet when it is paired with coastal décor it feels welcoming and fun. Use pastel hues of blue to further enhance the beach house vibes coastal décor tends to omit.
Focus on the Windows
Have an amazing view outdoors? If so, focus on your windows and how the outdoors blends with your décor. Focusing on your windows not only lends itself for a brightening effect, but it allows the room to feel larger which in return has that airy and light feel. Keep the window free of curtains for that open look.
Don’t Forget the Color
Color is important in any room and with any decorating style, even when you want an open and airy space. The key for an open space that has a large amount of color is mixing soft pastels with hints of bright bits. The bright bits bring saturated color while the pastels seamlessly have that airy feel to them.
A single black chandelier added to a soft, almost white decorated space is the perfect edgy, feminine touch to your space needs. This works best in a room that has plenty of natural lighting coming through, such as a bathroom or a living room.
Bring on the Gray
Gray is one of those hues that is perfect for any room and any decorative style. This is mainly due to the wide selection of shades that it does come in. Use a multitude of hues of gray and lay them around the space for a multidimensional feel that is very modern and airy even trendy.
When you are creating that perfect airy space that does not mainly revolve around having a white space you want to create texture. Create texture by having softer bits mixed in with patterns such as downward or horizontal stripes and/or florals. They are classy while having a clean textured look and feel.
Fifty Shades of Beige
Beige is one of those hues that simple works extremely well when you are working on creating a light and airy space. The key is working with different hues of beige in a way that it doesn’t seem boring or too minimalist instead it feels natural and put together.
Bring on the Lights
There’s no better way to bring a light and airy feel to a room than to go rich and bold with your light fixtures. Your light fixtures add a unique touch throughout depending on what light fixtures you use. For a dainty and feminine touch, add beautiful chandeliers that are gorgeous to look at. Meanwhile, for a more edgy touch, consider dark pendants instead.
