Think in Color Families, At first glance the home's entryway looks like a riot of color, but after talking to Mele you realize he was actually working with a tight palette. “I wanted a lot of white, first of all, and then a mix of blue and orange,” he reveals. The secret? Working with various hues within each of these two complementary color families. His blues included “cobalt, turquoise, delft, navy. Within the orange family, corals, tangerines, grapefruits. Really rich hues, not muted.” Blue & White Always Works, For Mele, using a combo of blue and white is like “wearing a white shirt with blue jeans, or a navy-blue blazer and a white shirt. It never goes out of style.” The classic color combination in interiors can be similarly dressed up or down. In the living room, Mele used a decidedly denimlike shade of blue grasscloth on the walls to add color and texture, which helps the silhouettes of the white accessories and the wingback chairs really pop. The overall effect is polished yet casual. “I think blue and white is the equivalent of black and white; it's just not as fierce,” says the designer. “It's more welcoming to most people.
Negative Space in a Modern Living Room, Make a small modern space appear larger with a white color palette and see through furnishings. This modern condo designed by Lori Pedersen Staging & Styling has a small footprint but thanks to the use of negative space (mainly around the acrylic coffee table) it appears larger than it really is. n art and design, negative space refers to the (sometimes) white space on a paper or in a painting — the space not taken up by the subject. In a home, negative space could be considered the blank spots in your home where there's no design — no art, no furniture, no stuff. It can be just as impactful to pay attention to where there isn't anything in your home. Expertly executed negative space can bring much-needed calmness to certain rooms and make other design elements pop even more powerfully.
