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.
The wall-papers, flooring, ceiling, and colors blend into predominant furniture which is the main emphasis in neoclassical style. The furniture is usually Mahogany and wedge with heavy grains accentuated with either paler pallet or stainless steel embellishments. Furniture is characterized by restraint symmetrical designs with motifs utilized for decoration. A strong color is used in moderation to catch the eye instantly. Color like magenta, blues, greens, and yellows are used to just cheer up one corner. Lavish use of gold leaf and silver leaf are entrants into this style. Wooden paneling's, imported wallpapers and modern art paintings give additional opportunities to use color. Wallpapers with muted tones, simple repetitive patterns without any major color contrasts are used. Shades of cream, grays, sage greens, soft pink, muted rose, blues, mustard and ocher golds were popular. White became the hep most color apart from the veneered finishes. Flooring is kept UN-tone to either imported marble or wooden flooring.
How to take advantage of it, Because your empty space has a shape, you have a good opportunity to change how your room feels. Let's say you just bought a corner sofa. Visually it's made up of two rectangles but it also created a negative space in the shape of a triangle in front of it. Now two rectangles and a triangle feel very angular and a little rigid so without knowing it, you just made your space less comfortable. But place a round coffee table overlapping that empty triangle and the negative space is now much softer, hence giving a more relaxed feeling to your room! So have a look at the floor plan of your rooms and clearly draw what the negative spaces look like, you might learn something!
