Put the finishing touches in your home with accents that capture the feel of French Polynesian life. Oversized planters with large palm plants and broadleaf tropical plants are a good start. Tropical flowers are abundant on Polynesian islands and are commonly seen in the hair of Tahitian women; look for fabric patterns or framed art with motifs of hibiscus, orchids or white gardenia, which resemble Tahitian tiare flowers. Fresh or silk flower arrangements will brighten rooms. Drape gauzy white material over a four-poster bed or hang it from ceiling hooks to resemble the mosquito netting used in tropical locales. Include several framed photos of Polynesian beaches and landscapes or even a wall-sized mural to bring a piece of paradise into your home.
A Fusion of Styles. We did talk earlier about how popular Asian themes are in reality a fusion of several different styles. It is important to know each style and its distinct elements before you make a choice regarding which one suits your home the best. The Japanese design style is innately simple, minimalist, and one that is closest to nature and its many hues. If you are a looking to add the essence of Zen to your residence, this is the theme for you. Traditional Chinese decor is far more opulent, expansive and grand with regal reds, lavish gold, captivating jade and plush purple tones. The typical Indian style is a colorful, unabashed celebration of life showcasing traditional Indian motifs and cultural icons. In case you are trying to create a fusion of Asian styles, it is best to stick to Japanese interior influences in the public spaces and opt for indulgent Chinese designs and colors in the bedroom. Add a few art pieces and rich textiles from an Indian backdrop and you have a truly Asian style.
Mediterranean furniture style. This style originated in countries north of the Mediterranean Sea, including Spain, Greece and Italy, and is often referred to today as "Spanish modern." Mediterranean-style furniture ranges from simply functional to extremely formal. Pieces are short, with ornately turned legs and feet; hardware is heavy and often burnished. Walls are predominantly textured. A bullnose edge is a common design detail on countertops and fireplace mantels. Here's how the style breaks down: Colors: Mediterranean colors echo those of the sea and sky and, depending on the region, can also include warm terra cotta, lavender and yellow. Tile: Mosaic tile designs embody the beauty of a Mediterranean interior. Bring the designs into your home on the floor or a kitchen backsplash or on something you can take with you if you move, like a mirror frame or a tabletop. You can also simulate the look of tile with a stenciled mosaic border on floors, walls or furniture.
