Asian décor is calming and relaxing, and will add a special flare to any space. Creating an Asian look is easy to do yourself because simplicity is always desirable over extravagance in Asian-style décor. To decorate in an Asian style, focus on creating a peaceful atmosphere and don't be afraid to get creative.
Things You'll Need
- Canvas, silkscreen or plain white paper
- Water fountain
- Bamboo furniture
- Lucky bamboo plants
- Storage space
Paint your walls in black and dramatic shades of red. You can also use jade-colored greens for a softer feel, but avoid green in conjunction with red or you could end up with a Christmas look. Use touches of gold throughout a room to add a dramatic touch, or tame your look with soft browns.
Asian décor bring elements of nature inside, so add small lucky bamboo plants or decorate with bamboo furniture. Add a small water fountain or two to create a calming and relaxing feel reminiscent of a trickling creek.
Remove clutter from your space. A major element of Asian décor is simplicity. A cluttered room will ruin your look quickly, so hide everyday items in easily accessible storage space.
Create your own Asian-style painting. Paint a character in an Asian language on a small white canvas or silkscreen, or create a simple watercolor scene on plain paper.
