Selecting a theme would also be quite helpful. When furniture is placed in a room without any noticeable theme it will probably look ok, but it might miss out on its potential. So, select a theme such as Victorian, modern, western, etc. Then, make a purchasing decision that includes furniture items that match the singular, selected theme. You can also select certain themes for certain rooms. For example, many people will have a room in the house set aside for work, study, or other pursuits. However, many people will keep such rooms bare. This is unfortunate since they could make these rooms experimental and unique. There are a number of specialty furniture stores that sell Polynesian style furniture, retro-mod style furniture, Asian art inspired furniture, and many other unique styles. Why not take that dull looking room and spice it up with a radical departure from traditional furniture styles?
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.
Inimitable Oriental Decor. Not too sure if your residence is cut out for an Asian theme? If you have a home that is already clad in cool neutral tones, then all you will need is a subtle decor change to test the waters out before committing to the theme. Small statues of laughing Buddha, decorative fans, Asian scroll paintings, a few jade statues, some oriental parasols, a shoji room divider or two, and throw pillow covers with Asian motifs should get the job done without forcing you to make permanent changes. Whether dramatic or understated, calming or classy, Asian themes offer an amazing way to give your home an impeccable and exclusive appeal. Keep an eye out for some oriental decor pieces next time you visit the thrift shop or the flea market so that you can redecorate on a budget. Get it right and you are guaranteed a tranquil getaway right at home.
