EAST ASIAN DESIGN

East Asian design has been one of the world's most popular and distinctive aesthetics for centuries. Rich with a healthy mix of functional and cultural elements, the countries of East Asia, including Japan, China, the Philippines and Thailand, have got the blend of then and the now right when it comes to all forms of design, most prominently interior design.

Tradition holds a heavy weight in Asia; unique cultural elements like wooden screen panels and cultural calligraphy are stapled features that set the design style apart.

Colour is also essential, and there are a few commonly used colours in East Asian design in general that make their way into interior design. Warm browns and pale creams find representation through design features like exposed wood, separating screens and matching furniture, whereas vivid colours like reds, blues and golds find their place through show pieces like artwork and statures. It's this kind of juxtaposition that keeps a space in balance.

So how do you incorporate East Asian design into your living space? You start by stripping it bare and building the room from the ground up. The most prominent philosophy consistent across the style is "Zen". The concept focuses on creating a peaceful atmosphere by keeping things minimal. East Asians believe in maintaining one's home uncluttered as it reflects one's mind.
