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.
Textiles and Accessories African style. Textiles should be of saturated colors, eye-catching with its brightness and variegation of ornamental zigzag and diamond-shaped figures on such items as upholstery of chairs, stools, curtains, bedspreads and pillows. You can even make the panels of mottled textiles. This ornament is available on the tableware, carpets and floor lamps. It is allowed to use the skins instead of the carpet. You can apply a lot of things ss accessories, such as bamboo curtains, clay figurines, ivory figurines, amulets, wicker lampshades, wooden blinds, hunting trophies, African masks as well as live plants, such as ferns or palm laurel. Mirror and photo frames made of bamboo or cork looks great in the African interior. However, you should not arrange the ethnic museum at your home. The sense of proportion is still required.
Material and Texture. Texture plays an integral part in Asian style furniture. Surfaces can be smooth and shiny, because wood is either polished to perfection, painted, or lacquered. Surface interest is also created by using materials such as bamboo, paper, silver or gold leaf. Upholstery and rugs run the gamut from silk to jute and straw. This round cocktail table is from Hammary, and it combines some very interesting materials and textures that you find in Asian furniture. The deep dish top has a glass inset highlighted by a field of silver leaf. This is a take on an ancient art technique in which the underside of the glass is painted with an intricate pattern. The faux bamboo base has a soft black finish with a subtle red rub through.
