Fragrance of Nature. Think beyond the decor itself to fashion a more authentic Asian-themed interior. Sandalwood incense, scented candles and beautiful wind chimes elevate the Oriental feel to a whole new level. Add to this a few potted plants and shrubs that bring in nature's goodness and you will instantly notice the transformation of the modern home into a comforting and serene hub. Both sound and aroma play a critical part in shaping our perception of various settings and in making the room a far more pleasant space. They also do not demand any repainting of the walls or renovation of your home and redefine the aesthetics in a cost-effective manner. Sleek Minimalism, clean and well-defined straight lines, minimalist decorations and sleek symmetry are all a natural part of Asian design influenced by a Japanese style. These elements allow you to effortlessly incorporate the theme into a contemporary setting with a few simple furniture and color changes. Borrowing from Feng Shui values that have been tried and tested for centuries now, clutter is an absolute no-no, and Asian themes encourage you to surround yourself with only the things that you absolutely love.
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.
Inimitable Oriental Decor. Not too sure if your residence is cut out for an Asian theme? If you have a home that is already clad in cool neutral tones, then all you will need is a subtle decor change to test the waters out before committing to the theme. Small statues of laughing Buddha, decorative fans, Asian scroll paintings, a few jade statues, some oriental parasols, a shoji room divider or two, and throw pillow covers with Asian motifs should get the job done without forcing you to make permanent changes. Whether dramatic or understated, calming or classy, Asian themes offer an amazing way to give your home an impeccable and exclusive appeal. Keep an eye out for some oriental decor pieces next time you visit the thrift shop or the flea market so that you can redecorate on a budget. Get it right and you are guaranteed a tranquil getaway right at home.
