Interiors Uncovered: Modern Oriental

There is something about the serenity, soothing forms and sense of balance of Asian-style that combines beautifully with the streamlined feel of a modern home. You can easily incorporate some of the exotic Asian elements into your own home design to give it an elegant and exclusive appeal.

In fusing Asian and modern styles, your ultimate goal is to find the balance between simple and sophisticated; minimal and warm; and peaceful and energetic. Use neutral colours as your backdrop; add accessories in ravishing red, cherry blossom pink, luxurious purple or regal gold; incorporate decorative screens; woven straw mats; paper lamp shades; silk tapestry; wooden furniture; bamboo blinds and cabinets; jade statues; Chinese antiques and calligraphy art.

Always remember, that balance is the key to this decorating style. You need to create the right harmony of colours, different textures and elements that surround you.
