Modern Oriental — sometimes also called Asian, this style combines elements of Far Eastern culture and design with a modern approach to interior design. Modern Oriental style interiors draw on the rich symbolism of Asian cultures, placing them in a contemporary context.

The color of happiness

The Chinese believe that red brings good luck. It is also a symbol of courage and loyalty. So don't forget to incorporate this color into your decor. From deep burgundy to ruby and scarlet. You can do it, for example, using a traditional lantern.

With respect for nature

The use of natural materials is absolutely key in this style. Opt for wood, bamboo, wicker and rattan. When it comes to accessories choose stone, ceramic and silk.

Rest in Zen style

Taking inspiration from Zen philosophy, create a space that is conducive to tranquility and meditation. Limit the chaos, keep things tidy and create a place to relax.

Symbolism

Asian culture is full of symbolism. Special meanings are given to for example animals, objects and weather phenomena. One of the important symbols is the dragon. According to Chinese beliefs, it travels between dimensions. Moreover, its image is supposed to bring us good luck. So look for decorations with this motif and incorporate them into your interior. You can also choose white and blue porcelain or a traditional fan. A wallpaper with a motif of cranes, which according to the Japanese bring hope, will also work great.

Less is more

Oriental furniture is simple. It often refers to the culture of eating meals while sitting on the floor. So choose geometric shapes for your furniture. Opt for low, platform beds, minimalist tables and chairs as well as cabinets with simple lines.
