In Interior Design, positive space is the space taken by your furniture and decor, on the floor or on your walls. Negative space, conversely, is the empty space around and in between those pieces of furnishing. And the word “empty” is important: we didn't say invisible! And because it is not invisible, it has, like everything else in your home, a big impact on how you feel in your living room or bedroom and how you experience them. So here's what you need to know about negative space and how to make the best of it. The optimal goal of designing a room is to make it feel in balance — the perfect amount of furniture, art and accessories so that it feels full, sophisticated and exciting. But not so full that it feels overwhelming or like the walls are closing in. Wanting to fill every wall and every corner with a design element so a space doesn't feel "blank" is a common design mistake.
Negative Space in a Modern Living Room, Make a small modern space appear larger with a white color palette and see through furnishings. This modern condo designed by Lori Pedersen Staging & Styling has a small footprint but thanks to the use of negative space (mainly around the acrylic coffee table) it appears larger than it really is. n art and design, negative space refers to the (sometimes) white space on a paper or in a painting — the space not taken up by the subject. In a home, negative space could be considered the blank spots in your home where there's no design — no art, no furniture, no stuff. It can be just as impactful to pay attention to where there isn't anything in your home. Expertly executed negative space can bring much-needed calmness to certain rooms and make other design elements pop even more powerfully.
Windows with less. With a dominant wall feature like this one, a window treatment would be superfluous. Leaving the windows bare allows the fabulous decorated wall to do the talking. Elimination exercise. When designing a room, what we put in tends to take precedence over what we leave out. Placing a coffee table between or in front of sofas is a firmly entrenched habit. But ask yourself whether it is actually essential to your living room. Would a pair of side tables work better instead? Here, the negative space created by the absence of a central table not only gives clear air to the sculptural lines of this hanging fireplace, but it also opens a traffic path to the floor-to-ceiling windows.
