Anchor floating furniture. If your sofa sits in the middle of your living room, anchor it with a sofa table so it doesn't look like a floating island. This will make the area seem more structured and substantial instead of looking as though something is missing. You can put a lamp or two on the table to create a reading spot where side tables won't fit. Plus, a sofa table draws your eye away from unsightly upholstery seams or lesser grades of leather on the back of your sofa. Ideally, the table should be a bit lower than the sofa back. Tables substantially higher tend to look a bit off and can knock the back of heads. Embrace nature's softer side. Slick and polished surfaces can feel hard, and their reflections have a tendency to cause eye fatigue — not exactly the hospitable feeling you want in your living room. Texture will add visual warmth and a richer, more tactile experience.
How it really works, When you put up a new print on your wall, your brain doesn't just register “new print on wall”: it analyses it like there's no tomorrow! Is it rectangular, is it framed, in what material, is it a painting, is it a photography, what are the main colours, is it abstract, do I like it? And it won't just do that the first time, it will constantly verify that information and add to it whenever you look at the wall. Now that doesn't sound very relaxing! Negative spaces create a break for your brain. Like a comma or a full stop in a sentence. The opportunity to just stop and enjoy the moment! As a result your room will feel more balanced. How to implement it, On top of being careful with the way you place your furniture, it's also about becoming a curator. That means being more selective with what you put up on your walls, on your sofa, on your shelves and consoles. One big piece of art on a wall for example will create a simple negative space around it, easier to process than that created by lots of pictures. Buy less, but buy better! It's not necessarily about being minimalist but let's just say this: we have not yet seen an Interior Designer create a very cluttered room! They know their negative space!
