Tips To Create An Asian-Inspired Interior. Asian-style interiors instantly evoke an image of serenity and tranquil calm. With most of us engrossed in a fast-paced urban lifestyle, it helps immensely when we can come back home to a peaceful abode that allows us to escape this never-ending rush. Asian-themed interiors accomplish this goal in inimitable style by ushering in harmony and balance. But creating an Asian-inspired room is much more than just adding a few distinct decorations. It takes care, precision and a clear thought process that allows you to do away with the unwanted additions. At its core, Asian design is a fusion of several different styles that range from the Japanese and the Chinese to exotic Indian themes. Yet, for most, it is often dominated by oriental influences that have originated in the Far East several centuries ago. Here is how you can incorporate some of these mesmerizing elements into your own home design while keeping the fresh, contemporary vibe intact.
Multifunctional furniture is a big component of Asian style. Futons can be used for sitting and as beds. Screens serve a decorative purpose and to divide areas and provide privacy. Small chests serve as nightstands and receptacles for personal effects, while also providing a surface that can serve as a small table. Futons have almost become ubiquitous today. Some retain their Asian looks, others do not. Properly speaking the word futon refers to the pad that can be rolled up and put away when it is no longer needed. This futon pad from West Elm is very Asian in its sensibility, and a boon for small spaces as well. Room dividers or folding screens are frequently used in Asian interiors. You can choose from intricately detailed and brightly colored screens to simple paper screens when it comes to room dividers. The intricately decorated ones may have accents or entire areas of gold and silver with black, red or other jewel tones. However if your Asian style room calls for a more simple treatment, there are plenty of choices in that as well. This version of a traditional Japanese shoji screen room divider has woven jute panels with the jute providing added textural interest and the tightly woven jute blocks light, adding to its functionality.
