Decorating In Asian Inspired Theme
Asian inspired theme is popular because of its simplicity and subtle beauty. This look is minimal and highlights only a few beautiful focal points. It’s spacious and highly functional.
The furniture in Asian decorating is dark brown or black and shiny. There can be a highlight of white and red, which is a classical Asian color theme. The materials for the furniture are bamboo, rattan or decorative timber.
The walls do not bring any attention to themselves. They should be in light neutral colors. The space should feel airy and roomy. What makes the walls stand out are a few special art pieces of nature and scenery. If you are using wallpaper, use rice paper.
Silk is the popular Asian inspired fabric. Use silk for curtains and other accessories. To go for a more minimal look, buy bamboo roll up blinds.
The popular material for the Asian inspired flooring is timber or bamboo. You can install a cheaper parquet to recreate a simple wooden floor look. Bamboo mats are also a good addition to Asian decorating.
Lighting can be as simple as rice paper lamp. Or you can purchase a pendant lantern to add a bit more flair to the room. Lighting here should be simple and in neutral colors.
If you are decorating a kitchen in Asian theme kitchen or a living room, add Asian inspired plates and bowls. Add bamboo place mats, chopsticks and serving trays. Use such colors as black, white and blue, or black white and red.
For the wall decor, use Asian prints of nature, wooden carved scenery, Asian plates, fans and other Asian inspired collectibles. You can also frame and hang a piece of silk printed fabric with Asian inspired scenery on it.
