Visual and Textural Balance. While trying to plan for Asian-style interiors, the word ‘balance' is something that you will come across time and time again. And we simply cannot overstate the importance of this singular aspect of oriental design. Balance is often the key defining aspect of an Asian theme. You need the right harmony of not just the colors but also different textures and elements that surround you. If your home is just one big block of concrete, think about adding glass partitions, natural stone decorations, wooden floors, bamboo blinds and a few organic textures in a poised fashion. A Cool Water Feature. Speaking of creating an atmosphere of equilibrium, water is another wonderful way of ushering in Asian style with ease and simplicity. The sound of flowing water is considered both harmonious and positive according to Feng Shui, and a small water feature in the entrance room, living area, or even in the backyard is a welcome addition. Reflecting pools make for amazing additions and have a calming influence that is undeniable. For those looking to add a water feature that is lively and effervescent, a beautiful koi pond is the way to go. Water features not only bring an element of fluidity, they can also double as stunning sculptural installations that become the focal point of the room.
Artistic ceramic tiles can be also a variant as a floor covering. However, recently it became popular to laminate the floor. Herewith, floor can be covered with inserts of another picture and color naturally blends with the surrounding background coloring. Great interest for fans of Victorian style is a carpeted floor. The red color of carpeting is well matched with the classic color of this style – light brown. Victorian style in the early stages of its development was in the form of quite bulky interior with a mass of bizarre patterns and ornaments. Furniture had a pretty massive look and lots of carved ornaments also. But over time, this style has become different with sense of proportion. Though the echoes of the old motifs can still be found.
