Known to be the cradle of civilization, the Middle East is a region steeped in ancient culture and religion – much of which has survived to the present day. It's also an area in which multiple influences meet to create colorful and flavorful styles of art, architecture and interior décor. From the markets of Morrocco and the beaches of Israel to the deserts of Iran, there is plenty of beautiful sights and styles for home design inspiration. Here are some easy ways to implement a Middle Eastern touch. One of the most easily recognizable Middle Eastern (and particularly Islamic) artistic traits is geometric patterns. From the shape of the buildings to the prints in fabrics and artwork, geometric patterns are everywhere. You can add these patterns to your home in the form or area rugs, throw pillows or a piece of framed wall art.
The lovely pinks of cherry blossoms, ravishing reds and luxurious purples are all an integral part of the Oriental style. If you are opting for a Chinese-inspired decorating style, these colors become an absolute must. For those who love a hint of mystic charm, carefully placed subtle black hues are the ideal choice. Another visually spellbinding option is to combine the soft neutral backdrop with exquisite golden tones to create a majestic living room. With gold being touted as one of the hottest colors this winter, it makes a trendy, fashionable statement as well. One motif you'll almost always find in an Asian-inspired room is nature. Whether it's scenes of landscapes, florals or animal life; small sculptures or collectibles; or an actual gathering of plants, driftwood or other natural materials; bringing the natural world inside creates a feeling of peace and harmony throughout the space. The gorgeous traditional bird and floral mural shown here certainly adds impact to the room.
