Wood hues are one of the most common indicators of the Asian design. The good thing about wood is that is comes in different tones to match the look that you have at home. Go for darker hues of wood for areas like your rooms and brighter ones for a more pleasant appeal in your living area. Carved furniture and wooden artifacts are also perfect accessories for your truly Asian look.

Buddha statues and other tribal carvings can also be included in your Asian decorated home. Add a few window blinds via in the shade of brown for that very cultural and antique look for your homes. Hints of this vivacious color is also perfect for bedrooms, your lanai, bathroom and areas that requires a more soothing and relaxing vibe.


Terracotta is another rich color that you can include in your homes. The outdoors of your home filled with terracotta bricks and blocks would look Asian and country-home like. An outdoor kitchen with a terracotta oven is also a sure fire conversation starter for guests.

White on the other hand can be used a backdrop for these fusion of colors. Tone down your rich terracotta and red hues with a splash of white or beige in the room. A white ceiling is a great approach to make your room bigger and wider despite of the rich colors and accessories that may restrict the spatial look of your indoors.

Lamps, colorful fans, statues in wood and bronze and plants are some of the additional accessories that you can use to make your home look truly Asian.
