Light and airy interior decors by Melissa Collison

In a previous article we presented you a series of sophisticated and dramatic interior decors created by Sydney-based Melissa Collison. That was a peak at the dark side of her creations. Now it’s time to take a look at the other side of her decors, the light part of her work. This is a selection of bright interior decors that tend to be on the opposite side of her other creations.

These decors are very simple and that’s because the colors also tend to dictate the style. If in the case of dark decors we saw sophisticated and dramatic touches, here we have simplicity and brightness. A light interior décor also needs to be airy and for that all the unnecessary details and accessories have to disappear. It’s why the modern minimalist style is very suited in this case. However, a talented interior designer will most often opt for an eclectic mix.

In these examples you can see how modern and contemporary pieces were combined with vintage and rustic elements resulting in a very cozy and inviting décor. Melissa opted for simple interior designs with layers of texture and with an overall elegant look. She also added glamorous details that add contrast. The result is a very fresh, bright, colorful and airy décor with a casual but also luxurious feel.
