Try this exercise, picture all of your possessions, and whatever does not serve you anymore, throw it away. I know this concept may seem a bit extreme due to sentimentality and because in the west, we associate the accumulation of worldly possessions with wealth, but how many of us have a corner of our home full of old records, out-of-date tech, wedding gifts, and cables that we never use but can't seem to get rid of because "they might come in handy one day."
Minimal design can be a refreshing change and deliver a striking artistic look when extravagant centrepieces are incorporated. They become the highlights of the room in an otherwise busy environment. East Asian design utilises pops of vivid colour, intricately painted designs and unique textures to draw the eyes in, highlighting the subjects with floods of natural light. Natural light and raw materials and elements are also something to consider. Bamboo sticks, traditional plants like bonsai trees and natural materials give the feeling of remaining connected to nature and keeping the air fresh and breathable. You can use these elements to Harmonise the interior and exterior of your home for a more synergistic feel.
We hope you consider a few of these ideas when building your own East Asian-inspired rooms. Maybe you can bring some much-needed "Zen" to create the peaceful home you've always wanted.
