Why it matters, I think we can all agree on one thing: your home should be comfortable, right? But how do you define and recognize a comfortable space? Is it just about how plush your sofa is? Not just! It's also about how comfortable you feel when you are moving around or through the room. So no matter how fluffy your cushions are, your room should also feel comfortable when you're not sitting down. And this is where negative space comes in. Do the exercise and sit in your sofa for a minute but close your eyes. Does it feel nice? Probably! Now open your eyes. Do you feel as relaxed? Well chances are, if you have lots of things on the walls and lots of decorative pieces on the furniture, it won't feel quite as peaceful. By giving your brain lots of things to look at, you get it to work which goes against any feeling of relaxation.
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!
Play with Layers and Textures. Nothing says comfortable quite like layers and textures. One of the easiest ways to make a space warm and inviting is by layering furniture with throws and pillows. Add knitted covers, fluffy pillows, pillowcases with fur, wool and mix them with simple materials like cotton to create the perfect contrast. And of course, nothing says cozy quite like fur, and faux fur options are even better! Whether it's a carpet, throw, or wall hanging, the fuzzy material will give your home a pleasant and toasty feel. This space uses a variety of textures and layers to create a warm, cozy feeling. Knits and textures have a way of making you feel cozied up at home, and there are so many ways to incorporate them into living spaces, across the bed like this or even thrown over on an armchair or couch which adds instant a touch of soft luxury. The fluffy pillows are also such a great textures that create softness and coziness.
