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.
The living room is the area which is your first introduction to guests. Couch or sofa occupies maximum space in your living room. The most important would be positioning your furniture. The traditional rule is to align it parallel to the wall but you can make it your own rule and place it at angles to give it a new look. A mix of old and new, formal and casual, neutral and bold add a new spark to the living room beside making it inviting and beautiful. The easiest way to get fusion look will be to introduce sofa and armchairs in contemporary lines while draperies and wall highlighting in the traditional way. Use the neutral color palette for the furniture and allow the accessories and furnishings to become a focal point. It is important to have an anchor or a place for your eye to rest which gives it the main focus.
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.
