Despite storing very little toys in this room, I wanted it to evoke peace and play. To achieve the peace, we kept a mostly neutral color palette with a pop of warmth from the wood and the leather couch. I also tried to keep the decor as minimal as possible (which helps when we have a bunch of tiny humans over). People keep asking what we'll hang above the fireplace, but I'm not sure that we'll hang anything. (Or maybe we just haven't found the perfect thing yet.) If this room were a profession, it would be a therapist. This is the space we bring our messy lives to. I wanted the room to be able to handle it. Of course, this is where we have fun too. I wanted to implement visual fun as a reminder. So we keep Hal's rocking horse out all the time. Kev named him Polo. Hal calls him Whole-Low and drags him all around the house.
How it really works, When you put up a new print on your wall, your brain doesn't just register “new print on wall”: it analyses it like there's no tomorrow! Is it rectangular, is it framed, in what material, is it a painting, is it a photography, what are the main colours, is it abstract, do I like it? And it won't just do that the first time, it will constantly verify that information and add to it whenever you look at the wall. Now that doesn't sound very relaxing! Negative spaces create a break for your brain. Like a comma or a full stop in a sentence. The opportunity to just stop and enjoy the moment! As a result your room will feel more balanced. How to implement it, On top of being careful with the way you place your furniture, it's also about becoming a curator. That means being more selective with what you put up on your walls, on your sofa, on your shelves and consoles. One big piece of art on a wall for example will create a simple negative space around it, easier to process than that created by lots of pictures. Buy less, but buy better! It's not necessarily about being minimalist but let's just say this: we have not yet seen an Interior Designer create a very cluttered room! They know their negative space!
