Are you struggling to come up with design ideas for your living room? If so, you might want to consider using a theme. It gives you a direction for your décor, and once you get thinking, you will have countless ideas that will work together to create a stunning effect. One theme that is particularly popular at the moment is Asian-inspired. Here, we take a look at some great ways to implement this style in your living room.
Start with a neutral palette
Use neutral, earthy tones as a background for your room. They fit this theme perfectly and are also great for creating a laidback and relaxing ambience. Once you have the understated canvas, you can think about introducing some brighter furnishings and accessories as talking points. Blacks and reds are a good choice here.
Add some life
Bringing some plants into the home is a brilliant way to make the place come alive. Asian greenery such as bamboo plants or cherry blossom in a pretty vase will complement your overall look and help to add interest to the room. Fresh plants are beautiful, but plastic options are generally of a really high quality these days, and require much less maintenance.
Make a feature with a wall décor
Feature walls are very trendy right now, and can be tailored perfectly for Asian style spaces. Look out for decals that include landscapes, exotic animals or Asian lettering. Alternatively, you could make your own mosaic with porcelain tiles and a little bit of imagination.
Buy some statement ornaments
Ornate ornaments are a must-have when you’re going for an Asian-inspired theme. Think pretty pottery and Buddha statues. Choose a few key pieces to make sure that you don’t break the bank, and go for an understated yet effective look.
Aim for minimalism
Clear out all your clutter and carefully consider all new items before making your purchase. You want to make a tranquil and relaxing living space, so remember that less is more. The result should be somewhere that you love to come home to after a long day at the office.
With some careful planning and a few wise purchases, an Asian-inspired living room can be a lot easier to achieve than you might think. The good news is that this sort of elegant glamour never goes out of fashion, so you needn’t be in a rush to update your space once you’re happy with how everything looks.
