Some interiors just make you want to sigh and settle right in.  They give off a vibe of fresh, clean, fuss-free living.  These rooms are designed with a light touch, with nothing extra in the mix.  This design aesthetic can be accomplished in homes of every style, be it modern, traditional, contemporary or transitional.  Here is a selection of fresh, fuss-free living rooms that will inspire you to just take a breath and come right in.

How do you achieve the fuss-free look?  Simplicity.  A limited color palette, refined furniture and fewer but more quality accessories.  Clear the clutter and focus on shape and clean lines.  Accessories should be in proportion to the room, keeping tabletops simple and clean.

Windows should be left essentially unadorned except for long panels that can be pulled across for privacy or light management.  To filter light during the day, sheer panels can be used beneath curtains to work separately.

Built-in shelving keeps books and decorative items tidy and out of the way.  Arrange smaller meaningful accessories in groups of three and intersperse with larger items.  Divide groups of books and spread them out, accenting with accessories.  Remember to edit, edit, edit!  You don’t have to display everything at once.  Simply rotate items seasonally or when you get the urge for a small change.

Soothing, soft colors open up a space and give it a fresh vibe.  Bring in color and warmth with wood furniture and a hint of darker toned colors in pillows or accessories.  Other than wood, keep stark contrasts of color to a minimum for a fresher, cleaner look and more relaxing vibe.
