This photo looks so fresh and inviting it seems like sunshine is everywhere. This seemingly casual arrangement is actually a well-thought-out approach to decorating to maximize the light in the room.
The windows are covered with translucent fabric. You can get the same look with cellular blinds that have a translucent element. Blinds that can be adjusted to let in just the right amount of light can provide a similar ability to control the sunlight as it comes into your home.
The next important element is light colors. The table is white and the vases are all light cream. From the simple ribbon curled on the table to the yellow, pink and white flowers, these hues reflect the light. Even the bright orange flowers look like small suns on the table. Use light walls and ceilings to bounce the sunlight around the room.
Think shiny to expand the power of light. The silver keys in this photo add a bright spot. In the same way, choosing reflective elements will multiply the amount of light in your space. Mirrors, silver accessories and anything with a glossy finish will help expand the lightness of your space.
Be sure to add some yellow to say sunshine. Look at how the yellow flowers in the foreground and the three tulips in the background bring a sense of sunshine into the photo. Consider painting one wall a light yellow in a kitchen, bathroom or bedroom. Look for cool very light colors to keep rooms feeling fresh.
This photo shows a space that invites you to sit down and enjoy. You can create the same feeling by adding light and bright elements to your own home.
