A Fusion of Styles. We did talk earlier about how popular Asian themes are in reality a fusion of several different styles. It is important to know each style and its distinct elements before you make a choice regarding which one suits your home the best. The Japanese design style is innately simple, minimalist, and one that is closest to nature and its many hues. If you are a looking to add the essence of Zen to your residence, this is the theme for you. Traditional Chinese decor is far more opulent, expansive and grand with regal reds, lavish gold, captivating jade and plush purple tones. The typical Indian style is a colorful, unabashed celebration of life showcasing traditional Indian motifs and cultural icons. In case you are trying to create a fusion of Asian styles, it is best to stick to Japanese interior influences in the public spaces and opt for indulgent Chinese designs and colors in the bedroom. Add a few art pieces and rich textiles from an Indian backdrop and you have a truly Asian style.
Obligatory attribute of the interior is the fireplace. Its presence is mandatory in the living room. Rococo style elements fit excellently. They are presented in the form of furniture made of mahogany. The feet of furniture necessarily curved, the furniture itself has carved ornaments. Furniture is made of natural precious wood: walnut, mahogany, stained oak. Most furniture has carved ornaments, sometimes inlaid with precious stones and metals. Victorian style is unthinkable without the Library, and its contents should not leave any person who likes literature indifferent. Since the interior of a Victorian style incorporates elements of several styles, so here is a certain dependence of these styles on the purpose of the room. The elements of the Gothic style can be found in the figural stucco, huge windows, high ceilings. Mandatory attribute for the Gothic is the fireplace. The presence of the carpet with intricate patterns indicates the presence of Indian style.
Sculptural Lighting and Paper Lanterns. Lighting can make or break the look of your interior, regardless of the theme you have going. But in the case of Asian style, it adds to the entire visual and elegantly accentuates the theme. Stylish hanging paper lanterns, sculptural lighting installations and a few carefully placed candles go a long way in creating a home inspired by the Far East! For those looking to add a timeless decor addition that bridges the gap between the East and the West with a more modern silhouette, we suggest dipping into the stunning Akari Light Sculpture Collection from Isamu Noguchi. Organic and Sustainable Design. This is one aspect of Asian design that is simply irresistible and should appeal to the eco-conscious homeowners out there. Smooth polished stones such as river rocks, sustainable bamboo blinds that replace the traditional drapes, intricately woven tatami mats, and potted plants and shrubs that bring in nature's goodness tend to come together to paint that picture-perfect look. It's the little details that tend to make a big difference to the ambiance of the room. Make sure you keep the accessories and furnishings as sustainable and organic as possible to induce a truly Asian vibe.
