Asian Influence

I have noticed lately that many spaces featured in current decor magazines have an Asian/Chinoiserie vibe to them. The more I see this, the more I want to incorporate such pieces in my home. It is a sort of ethnic take on modern glamour. Modern can often feel cold and static - add some Asian influence and it becomes warm and dynamic. This look can be achieved on a small or large scale, but I think small scale works best. Mixing Asian with modern or classic pieces is just so much more unexpected.

How about simply a pair of Buddha bedside lamps.



If a subtle look is what you're after, perhaps a ceramic stool and a piece of Asian-inspired artwork.



Typical Asian colours of red and black applied in wallpapers and accessories makes a bold statement.





Asian furniture has such beautiful lines and can make a big impact.







Sometimes maybe bolder is better. Asian ceramics are stunning, and make quite a statement placed in an entryway to an even bolder statement - a room swathed in reds and blues.



(Thanks Mark for asking Jo and I to guest blog for you! Kim @ desire to inspire)

Just found your blog -it's fab. Love those chairs. Your Newport Beach job looks great. I do occasional jobs there and more in Laguna for clients with vacation homes at the beach. I'm based in Vegas. I look forward to reading your future posts.

Very nice spread of images. It's not easy to locate so many good pictures! :)

I agree, the more they 'feed' us these images in magazines and shows, the more I 'decide' I want to add it to my home. It brings an element of history and refinement to a room. Gravitas if you will, with a touch of whimsy.

For those of us who work as professions in the Asian antiques/ethic furnishings business, this is music to our ears. As our own business is working closely with designers and retailers its good to know that this look is on the move. (Personally, I think the Chinoiserie look is timeless!) Whats funny though, is that at the same time, the Chinese are rushing to buy western style furniture! If you are really interested in Chinese antiques, feel free to poke around on our own Asian antique furniture blog to see the other end of things, IE where the product comes from before it even reaches the interior designers on your side.

I broke the digitizer(the touch sensors) on my iPhone and ordered a part to replace it with. But since it won't read my touch, I can't shut it down. I know how to restart it, but I need it completely off to replace the parts and it's been running on battery for almost two weeks and is not even halfway dead yet. HELP!

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
