You can make your living room seem airier through the artful choice of furniture and accessories. Decorators recommend these techniques:

1. Choose just a few pieces of furniture — declutter!

2. Choose light colors for the furniture and your wall paint, and match some of the furniture to the walls.

3. Avoid busy prints in upholstery.

4. Choose low-slung, unobtrusive furniture and don’t block windows or doors.

5. Choose tables with glass or mirror tops.

6. Choose sheer fabrics for window treatments and tablecloths.
