Home Decor for a Claustrophobic

Light colored or neutral walls and floors add a feeling of space to the environment.

The furniture pieces should not only be small in number they should be light or neutral in color with maybe one or two colorful accent tables. Light gray furniture comes to mind accented with splashes of blue and orange pillows.
