Accessories: Burnished bronze urns, filigree light fixtures and a wrought-iron fireplace screen exemplify a Mediterranean look with a Moroccan influence. Texture: Layers of paint and glaze are hand-rubbed onto plaster or sand-textured walls to add visual depth. Simulate the look of a plaster wall with a textured finish using tinted drywall compound and colored beeswax. Tuscan interiors feature a rustic, sun-baked look characterized by crumbling stone patios, simple and sturdy furnishings with elegant iron accents, terra-cotta tiles, textured wall finishes, elegant, detailed murals and trompe l'oeil designs. Here's how the Tuscan style breaks down: Colors: The rustic Tuscan color palette leans heavily on earthy, unpretentious hues evocative of a Tuscan hillside. Floors: Terracotta tiles, stone with mosaic inlay and worn wood covered with antique rugs are all ways to bring a Tuscan look down to the floor. Accents: Wrought-iron accessories such as candle sconces and light fixtures can reinforce the rustic theme. Other appropriate accessories include painted ceramic objects and tile to bring color and vitality to the design. Architecture: Rough plaster walls often soar to a rustic beamed ceiling. Windows are simple and left bare to take advantage of unfiltered natural light.
Visual and Textural Balance. While trying to plan for Asian-style interiors, the word ‘balance' is something that you will come across time and time again. And we simply cannot overstate the importance of this singular aspect of oriental design. Balance is often the key defining aspect of an Asian theme. You need the right harmony of not just the colors but also different textures and elements that surround you. If your home is just one big block of concrete, think about adding glass partitions, natural stone decorations, wooden floors, bamboo blinds and a few organic textures in a poised fashion. A Cool Water Feature. Speaking of creating an atmosphere of equilibrium, water is another wonderful way of ushering in Asian style with ease and simplicity. The sound of flowing water is considered both harmonious and positive according to Feng Shui, and a small water feature in the entrance room, living area, or even in the backyard is a welcome addition. Reflecting pools make for amazing additions and have a calming influence that is undeniable. For those looking to add a water feature that is lively and effervescent, a beautiful koi pond is the way to go. Water features not only bring an element of fluidity, they can also double as stunning sculptural installations that become the focal point of the room.
Polinesia furniture style. While this remote paradise may seem a world away, you can still bring the look and feel of the South Pacific into your home with island-inspired furnishings and decor. In the tropics, light interiors keep rooms feeling cool and fresh. Walls are typically painted white or off-white, accented by natural wood trim, wood ceiling beams and wood paneling. Interior living spaces often open up to outdoor patios or balconies for a flowing transition between indoors and outdoors. The isolation of island life encourages the use of locally sourced natural materials, giving interiors a very organic feel. Allow plenty of natural light to enter rooms by using sheer curtains on windows. If you prefer a little more color on walls, go with a light beige or cover walls with teak or bamboo paneling.
