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!
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.
