Look for negative space opportunities, In writing, sentences often contain extra words that without, the sentence would sound just fine. Train yourself to look for those moments in your own home. Is there a narrow wall with a small blot of art that when taken down, would still look like a fine wall? Is there a tabletop with a fledgling vignette that would look just as spectacular if cleared off? Don't look for places where you can take things down — look for spots that seem like they'd be just fine if you took extra accessories out of the equation. Sit with it,After identifying and eliminating a design element to create some negative or white space, sit with it. Don't give it just a few minutes — the immediate result will be like first seeing someone without glasses when you've only known them as a glasses wearer. Sit with newly negated space for a few days or a week.
Pick a Palette, and Repeat, Working within a streamlined color palette not only helps the rooms themselves feel cohesive, but it also helps with the transitions between rooms. “When you're in the middle of the foyer and you're able to see all the other rooms throughout, you have the same family of colors repeated but in different ways in each space,” says Mele. Case in point: The walls of the breakfast room are coated with a similar blue to the family room, but this time with paint, and as in the entryway, a pop of orange upholstery has a striking yet grounding effect. Play with Percentages, A genius way to get even more mileage out of a small group of colors is to do a flip-flop of sorts, pushing what was previously used as an accent color to the foreground. This is precisely what Mele did in this music room by using statement orange curtains and tangerine lamps while letting the blue and white recede to a single armchair. “It ties in blue to fit in with the rest of the house,” says Mele of his design.
