Asian interior design is a great choice for those who love romantic, peaceful, and colorful spaces. You also can’t help but feel a little exotic while relaxing in a room styled with Asian inspirations. Color is very important when decorating in the Asian style. Here are the best colors to introduce as accent colors when decorating an Asian inspired room.
In Chinese traditions red symbolizes luck, and general good fortune. In general design practices, red is a lovely, rich, warm color that looks timeless in any space and is perfectly romantic.
Contrast reds with ebony blacks, and brilliant whites to create a stunning effect. Accenting with gold decor will also brighten the ambiance of the room, and tie in that perfectly Chinese exotic appeal.
Chinese tradition recognizes the color green as a symbol of harmony, well being, spring time, and health. For interior design purposes the color green is also a cool, soft tone that compliments many other colors.
For a beautiful Asian inspired room, accent with whites, yellows and golds to give your room a soft light inspiration. Greens also look stunning with soft grey for a soothing atmosphere.
Both in Chinese and Buddhist traditions yellow is an extremely important color.
The Chinese view this color to be the traditional symbol of heroes, and the five emperors. It as seen as a color for the noble and the wealthy (kind of like purple in Renaissance Great Britain)
Buddhists view this color as an exemplary symbol of freedom from Earthly things in exchange for higher enlightenment. They often associate yellow as the color that is the center of all things both earthly and spiritual.
When decorating your space with yellow, consider pairing it with whites, soft grays, and accent with vibrant blue to really make this color stand out. Yellow is a strikingly warm color so accenting with neutrals and cool tones can really help balance the color of your space. However, accenting with little hints of red can really add to the overall vibrancy of your room.
Always remember that in many Asian cultures, balance is highly important. Try to use this theme in your decorating. Use bright colors to balance neutrals. Soften warm colors with cool colors and warm cool colors with accents of warm colors. Peace, balance, and harmony are central components of Asian design.
