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!
When design meets both form and function, it feels like money well spent. I mentioned in the previous post that we had a major heating issue in the house last winter. Upstairs was extremely hot at night. (It absorbed all the sun from the day and the rise of the heat from below). But the downstairs was an ice chest throughout the day. We have one system for the house, so when we'd heat the downstairs, it'd make upstairs perfect for hot yoga. We now use the fireplace as a heater to the first floor, and it's working beautifully. We've barely had to run our heater this fall. So here's our cozy modern living room. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm glad we waited a year plus to add the fireplace. It took us that long to get to know the room and the house.
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.
