Did you know that the colors and choice of materials and accessories in a room can greatly influence the perception of the room’s size and mood? To achieve a light, airy and cool feeling in any room there are a few simple tips to follow.


1. Paint Color

Choose your paint colors carefully. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to paint everything white. However, the colors you chose should be light and cool. Ice blues and greens or other muted and neutral colors such as gray, can make any room feel open and airy, as well as making a small space feels more open. Also, incorporating colors found in your environment outside can make it feel like the outside has come inside and open up the room.

2. Keep the Right Temperature

Use appropriate heating and cooling in the room. Small spaces may benefit from an individual system. Another popular option is ducted air conditioning. It can help keep your room at the perfect temperature all year round without needing to spoil your décor with bulky in-room units. Ducted air conditioning can heat and cool an entire house, and also give you individual control over specific zones, including the kitchen, making it the perfect option for open concept homes where rooms often serve multiple purposes.

3. Natural Light

Whatever your space, let in as much natural light as possible. It’s also a good idea to avoid heavy fabrics and drapes as this can have the opposite effect and make a room feel cozy and closed. By using sheer drapes and not covering any of the windows with furniture, your room will naturally feel more open and light.


4. Lighting

Despite your best efforts, there are some times when sunlight just isn’t enough. Perhaps you live in a rainy climate or in a building where the natural light is obscured. By using clever lighting techniques you can still open up a room. Avoid harsh fluorescent lights and use more natural lighting. Multiple light sources work well, such as lamps placed around the room with soft light bulbs or sconces.


5: Furniture

When choosing furniture, it’s best to choose pieces that don’t overwhelm the room. The key here is to leave plenty of open space. As with the paint colors, light and muted colors also work best for furniture to make a room feel airy and cool. As well as blues and greens, grays, lavenders and browns also work well. Light colored furniture will also reflect the natural light in the room, making it feel open and airy. If you’d like to inject a little warmth into the room yellows and light metallic tones can do this without overwhelming the cool feeling of the room.

    I love this post. Everything in it is so beautiful. Very well put together home. I would be curious where to find the light fixture in the living room, the one with the gold finish. Also the light blue toned storage cabinets with the gold tones.
