Asian Style Basics, Different elements of Asian style have influenced Western décor for centuries. Today we are so used to these Asian influences that we do not even realize where they came from. The ball and claw foot, for instance, was originally inspired by a Chinese motif. Asian inspired furniture draws on Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese traditions among others. The Asian style, which encompasses the Far East, is not confined to any one country or culture and spans centuries. Far from having a single homogenous look, Asian furniture can be highly ornamented, with carved surfaces and bold color, or have very simple lines, free of any ornamentation with soothing neutral tones. When creating your own Asian-inspired interior, you can pick and choose from different elements. Maybe what stands out as the single most defining feature is a sense of balance and a lack of clutter creating balanced, uncluttered, and harmonious interiors. The red and black Chinese inspired chest is from Hooker.
Victorian style is perfectly combined with elements of the Rococo, which is characterized by pastel colors, furniture with curved, carved headboards. Here you can find the Gothic in the form of massive metal chandeliers, metal cabinet knobs. The pastel colors, the presence flowers and plants in the room, a massive chandelier above the table give out the elements of Indian style. Design of Victorian style is, among other, built on a combination of walls, ceiling in pastel colors (cream, pale yellow, light green, etc.) with the warm tones of the parquet and furniture typical for the classic style. Interior of the kitchen in a Victorian style determines, first of all, the presence of a massive table in the center of the room. Kitchen lighting provide a massive chandelier and several additional lamps. And of course, the walls and the furniture should be of soft, quiet tones. Less textiles on the windows.
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.
