Who is in the interior of the house – whether you’re starting from scratch or to treat yourself to change – would look for inspiring ideas are also able to focus on contemporary Asian decor, a successful blend of modern and antique. But also a device that is completely focused on relaxing the body and mind. Not infrequently, this device therefore called ‘zen’.
Main idea behind this new Asian-style house is a ‘feel-good feeling to distribute. A feeling of deep relaxation, relaxing, but also convenience (not extravagant) luxury. Due to space and light to work, an atmosphere created that are aimed at relaxation, perhaps invites meditation. The luxurious feel gives you the idea of a spa or a fancy resort, and provides a wonderful sense of wellbeing.
At home you feel the same harmony and tranquility that you encounter in nature. The design is “outward looking and most consistent with the environment. The windows reach to the ground and often involve the garden or the view from the interior. Often you fall in Asian homes literally ‘the bush’. Hallways and vestibules as we know – and often serve to keep out the cold – you’ll rarely.
Space and light are two elements that are extremely important. Because the hallways and corridors and hence a lack of doors, the rooms give itself a feeling of space. To give the room more depth, we are working with glass walls and a series of wooden columns (which the idea of a row of stately trees). An airy and clean way to create different angles.
The few furnishings are either extremely modern or antique (or antique oriental furniture inspired). Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian furniture but also furniture from leading Western collections are subtly mixed. The traditional bench as we know it is sometimes replaced by a comfortable lounger with large pillows. Sleek glass tables disturb the least possible space. The chairs themselves often differ in style and design and each has its own personality. The key word is and remains: minimalism.
The lighting is another basic element. Classical standing lamps are increasingly being replaced by sophisticated spot with dimmer lights in the ceiling, and sometimes even in niches in the wall, are installed. This way you can achieve different lighting effects and the different areas separately ease. So you can only that zone where you want to relax, gently ease the rest in the dark. In luxury lounge bars and boutique hotels are modern elements such as the main bar or the wine rack as a light source often used. This creates a soft light, often colored, and makes the environment more modern. Often you will find there a single, large, colored orb on the floor with a pleasant and soothing light spread. The lighting is also often supplemented by candles, sometimes in a container with fragrant oil.
The colors are mostly covered and taken from nature: white, beige, various shades of brown (or very dark brown), green and black. Occasionally, a single bright color – red is the favorite – for a more personal look. The materials are predominantly natural. Leather – dark or even white – is currently very popular. You also see a lot of glass but also wood, bamboo, reeds and silk.
Drapes you in a zen-establishment does not quickly find. Luxiflex wooden blinds or keep all tight and clean. The walls are often decorated with wooden or silk-covered panels, or with dark-tinted mirrors, and thus contribute a major part in defining the luxurious but relaxed atmosphere.
It is sparingly dealt with accessories. A single artwork, original, gives the house personality. Vases with a single flower emphasize minimalism. Modern equipment and a large plasma or LCD TV and a sophisticated sound system ensure a more luxurious feel, and are invariably part of the modern Asian decor.
Wardrobe is extremely important. In order not to disturb the peace, be functional objects and other things that have nothing to do with the interior, rigorously and systematically stored in cabinets. The living space remains clear and has all the cabinets are solid, so that you can find things easily.
Especially in large cities, this exquisite and particularly relaxed structure often something of a refreshing and relaxing oasis, giving you the opportunity to present the traffic chaos outside to escape.
