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.
Use White to Freshen Things Up, Mele is a huge proponent of painting things white, especially furniture. “I think white modernizes and freshens,” he says. “People are afraid of their old grandmother's found furniture, but their forms are so fabulous and remain timeless. White just gives furniture a contemporary personality, I think. A fresh youthful spirit.” To strike the right color balance in the home's formal dining room, Mele had the dining chairs bleached white from the original brown. Strike a Color-and-Pattern Compromise, When dialing up the pattern, it's sometimes best to dial down the color to achieve a calmer, less chaotic effect. When designing the home's master bedroom, Mele started with a bold, Matisse-esque pattern and made his color choices, or lack thereof, from there. “I just wanted to use that pattern everywhere and not break it up with different colors or patterns,” he says. To that end he refrained from introducing any of the vibrant colors he used on the home's ground floor. “I wanted it to feel a little calmer, quieter, even though it's not a calm, quiet fabric.
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.
