Think in Color Families, At first glance the home's entryway looks like a riot of color, but after talking to Mele you realize he was actually working with a tight palette. “I wanted a lot of white, first of all, and then a mix of blue and orange,” he reveals. The secret? Working with various hues within each of these two complementary color families. His blues included “cobalt, turquoise, delft, navy. Within the orange family, corals, tangerines, grapefruits. Really rich hues, not muted.” Blue & White Always Works, For Mele, using a combo of blue and white is like “wearing a white shirt with blue jeans, or a navy-blue blazer and a white shirt. It never goes out of style.” The classic color combination in interiors can be similarly dressed up or down. In the living room, Mele used a decidedly denimlike shade of blue grasscloth on the walls to add color and texture, which helps the silhouettes of the white accessories and the wingback chairs really pop. The overall effect is polished yet casual. “I think blue and white is the equivalent of black and white; it's just not as fierce,” says the designer. “It's more welcoming to most people.
Be intentional with planning it, The difference between a space in your home left blank that looks like it's supposed to be there and one that just looks like you forgot to do something with it? Purposely leaving a spot blank and having a reason for it. In other words, having a reason why you've left an area blank — to let other spots in the room shine, for instance — is a better reason than just not having something to put there, and that intention will show. Use it to tease something to come, By letting a design element slightly encroach into negative space (say a piece of art hung in the turn of a hallway in such a way that you can only see a part of it, beckoning you to explore it), you tease the viewer, pulling them into your space and creating visual tension. Feel free to fill it if it just doesn't feel right,If you've sat with negative space for a few days and your new negative space isn't bringing you a sense of relief — if it's not breathing a fresh breath of peace to your room, but rather making you itch like you want to fill it with something — fill it with something! It might not be the right area to leave intentionally blank.
