Taking a break from the traditional sofa-and-table setup can create the negative space a room needs. Removing traditionally placed furniture is not about minimalism and empty spaces, but rather about liberating areas to highlight elements that personalize and add character, as shown in this tranquil room. A pared-down arrangement may seem bare at first, but your eye will quickly acclimatize to a cleaner, calmer look. Alternatively, negative space can de-emphasize architectural features that you don't wish to draw attention to, such as awkward angles or a too-high ceiling. When you offer plenty of visual interest at floor level, hardly anybody looks upward. Depending on perspective, negative and positive areas may swap places. Viewed one way, the four-petaled floral shape on these tiles is positive, and the white becomes negative space. The illusion is reversible, revealing a pointed white diamond in a black circle.
It can be a console, a wall art or a highlighting of a corner or probably just a light fixture. This focal point will help bind the whole living room together and also define its function. Generally fire-place, plasma unit or a console make good focal points. It is sometimes important to draw the attention to the farthest wall using an oversize piece of art or decorative mirror so that you have footsteps in that corner, else it will become one dull area of the living room. Fusion look can be achieved by combining various materials; while chrome steel black lacquered wood, leather will add the contemporary look; silk, carved wood, and wrought iron will bring the tradition in. It is very important to achieve a balance by not overdoing any one style. Accessories like cuddly cushions, candles, dim lights, and flowers will add warmth and coziness to the atmosphere. Add likes to your lighting rather than one high voltage ceiling lamp illuminating the entire room, use a combo of the floor, table, ceiling and wall lamp to make the space glow. A big rug made of plush wool or silk made with traditional weaving will make the room inviting and also set a sharp contrast with furniture.
