Light & Bright Living Spaces

Bright colors and natural light. That's what a room needs.

So many pretty colors to feast your eyes on. And look at the ceiling. The unexpected.

Love the golds paired with nature's green.

Tranquil yet full of whimsy.

Don't be afraid to use different shades of the same color.

Always display what's important to you. What makes your heart sing.

Plants soften the edges of a room.

The black and white flower canvas is fanciful and fun.

  1. Those are ALL fun, Brenda. My computer is acting up -ugh- quick comment. I love the one with the black and white couch-not usually my style but it "grabs" me. Have a good weekend- xo Diana

  2. love that blue sofa and the chest as a table...

    thanks for all the eye candy.

  3. I love every single one of those rooms - cheery and light, beautiful colors.

  4. Hi Brenda! Oh, so many pretty rooms. I'm crushing all over that darling green cabinet with shutter doors and the little matching table! I don't even know what color of green that is.
    Be a sweetie,

  5. I love photo #4, tranquil but with whimsy. Your description is right on target. I sure would enjoy spending an afternoon in that room.

  6. I love the room with the green cabinet and stripey chair, love the color combos there!

  7. Great spaces! I'm smitten with that cute little shutter cabinet... reminds me of a jadite mug. Aaah... dreamy!

  8. I LOVE light and bright Brenda...the second photo down is my favorite!!

  9. I love that tin ceiling! My dentist's office is in an old building with original tin ceilings painted white. I'd really like to explore that idea to cover up the cracked plaster ceiling in our master bedroom. Mudding overhead is not my idea of fun. I've done it twice and that's enough. I love all the rooms you've featured today.

  10. I want to be in that gorgeous room with the pinky red striped armchair and the different shades of green. Can you arrange it? I would be eternally grateful.:))


    1. Me too! That one is my favorite - so pretty and cheerful!!

    2. Do you think all of us would fit? I would be happy to take turns sitting in that room.... I just kept looking at that picture, and then going back to it! What a happy place that would be.

  11. Hi Brenda, great room features. I love the black and white. Have a great weekend.

  12. I love the room with the light blue sofa and all of the pretty colors.. I love the wardrobe/armoire in that room. I also like the pot of forsythia in the eighth room. Can't wait to have some blooming in my yard.
    We're in for another snow/ice storm on Sun. night into Monday.
    Have a fulfilling weekend.

  14. You had me at light bright living! Craving that now. Great selections.
    Loved the post,

  15. They are all beautiful spaces. I see you have a new look for your blog. Is it in honor of spring? I like it.

  16. These are all really great rooms. Makes you want to see more of each home. Thanks for always sharing with us.

  17. Beautiful! Love them all, but especially the striped arm chair and green wall cabinet.

  18. Oh, I understand your comment about colour on my post ;) I love a bright and airy living-room. Great inspiration.

  19. I love primitive decorating, but I also love cottage style and shabby chic. I prefer the "cleaned up & paired down" versions of these styles. All of these rooms are wonderful and very inviting. The sue of color and the light in each room really makes them extra beautiful.

  20. Excellent living rooms choices! All are beautiful. But, the picture with the black and white couch really caught my attention. Which is unusual, because black and white decorating is not my style!

  21. These are all wonderful, Brenda. Love the pops of color. I have steered my readers to your new help for bloggers blog. Thanks for all you do. xo Laura

  22. I love a room with lots of light. I was especially looking at all the different window treatments. I loved them all!


  23. Fun to see! Love that black and white flower canvas!

  24. I love using clean light colour and then a feature colour for accessories - the light colours help to add an open feel to the room, whilst the bold colour of the accessories adds the warmth - you can't beat a nice balance of the two.
