Asian Fusion Style(1)

The design world is rediscovering Asia and its ageless, classic design styles.

How do you design a room with Asian Style fusion in mind?

Begin at the beginning

I recommend you begin with what you have already; after all it’s about fusion. Review the elements you already have in your room-the furniture, the accessories, the natural light, the artificial light, the art, the colors, the floor or rugs, the plants, etc.

Next, consider how you currently use the room and the home decor elements in the room. Is this a formal or informal area, is it a room that is used by children or adults, is it used in the morning, for eating, for receiving guests or evening for sleeping? Every room’s interior design must accommodate its use.

What are the natural architectural focal points of the room (windows, fireplace, ceiling height) and what are the designed focal points of the room (armoire, sectional sofa, area rug)?

And last in your review is to consider what design elements-natural or designed-make you feel good about the space and about yourself, what inspires you? Are you moved by the spectacular view from your bay window, are you comforted by your grandmother’s marble-top table, are you excited every time you see your new contemporary art piece? Feelings that might be desirable to you include excitement, harmony, balance, simplicity, spirituality, serenity and elegance.

Keep the end in mind

Don’t settle on just cliché Asian or Chinese ideas; like the color red, a dragon, a tea pot, or a scroll painting. I challenge you to investigate deeper and develop a clearer understanding of Asian style and Chinese style.

The Asian home decor style is more about the proportion of furniture and its aesthetic simplicity but can also be about its opulent carvings or lacquer. It is about how colors affect us emotionally and the balance of contrasting hues. It’s about designing to achieve a lack of clutter, and instead focusing on nature, connecting to your spiritual core, and welcoming a peaceful energy into your home and life.
