4 Asian-Influenced Interiors That Exude the East

With many design influences springing from the West – Nordic, Scandinavian, French – we sometimes forget about the luxuries of the East. Simplistic with a taste of a different kind of rustic, they offer modern elegance with a twist. Lush plant life joins with simple slatted windows and rough-shod wood to create the feel of the jungle. Low, flat lines in expansive, muted colours show a more down-to-earth design. Warm lighting glows upon curved seating, twisted and turned for the sake of innovation. Find the values of the East in your interior with these Japanese and Vietnamese homes, all visualised by Phiung Asia.

Located in Shizuoka, Japan, our first home was designed for those living in close quarters. Taking three days to visualise, its combination of iron, slatted grey wood and natural hues remind of an urban jungle. The living room grounds its design in concrete-panelled ceilings, light wood and a grey-slatted canvas. Brown suede couches remind of hides, while table mosses show different forest species. Ocean-themed watercolours mist the walls, as boxed white windows let light on the concrete floor. A wooden platform, looking more outdoors than in, looks down on plant life.

The dining table Is centred with iron hanging lights, and joined by an abstract in strokes of grey. Lit by the lounge’s open plan windows, wooden stencil features add elegance in thin-stemmed chairs, partitions and slatted cabinetry. A tree stands tall among stone and slate ornaments.

Our second space in Chiba, Japan, is a more industrial take on the same theme. Briefed to evoke nature, simplicity and sincerity, its cement, wood and tree accents span a more relaxed room. Piped cement ceilings and a matching floor house a wooden platform and furniture in the main area, clothed in dusky greys and brown leather. An exposed brick wall lets potted trees take centre stage, while a mesh and linen chandelier hangs peacefully. A simple table with leather school chairs provides a place for eating.

The TV room inspires simplicity within a stylish framework. A grey wooden panel on concrete sits beside ferns and trees, while a dreamcatcher dangles from the ceiling. Relaxed wooden chairs match simple block furniture. Joinery and a black ladder dilute the modernity of the TV, while a tree stump table sits on iron legs.

Plants are an important design feature. Potted olive trees and ferns surround themselves with cacti in the TV room. The dining table offers a fish bowl, more potted cacti and bonzai.

The kitchen’s industrial elements make themselves known, as a silver extractor fan acts the feature. Marble and wood play together, with a grey wooden panel mirroring the living room. Chrome elements in pots, pans, and appliances blend into the concrete, while highlighting the extractor fan. Air conditioning piping forms a neat line lined with lights, leading to simple hanging door threads.

Another space in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, combines the classic and modern in one beautiful space. Designed to work with Vietnam’s early dark, lights are dotted around the house to provide ample light after five. A twelve-pronged candelabra makes an impact on the living room, swathed in tones of light grey, wood and beige. An L-shaped linen couch cradles two low-lying tables, an example of the traditional, while sliding white frames open up to a modern patio. Mossy plants and a feature chair add texture to the space, as a grey kitchen provides a simplistic backdrop.

Looking out to the patio, a skyline enters in, reaffirming the grey. A bordered ceiling reminds of the 50’s, a beehive-panelled partition the 70’s. Simple bauble vases sit on clean line shelving, housing the TV while opening to the view to an outdoor living wall.

Our final space in Ho Chi Minh measures a mere 120sqm. Geared towards the surreal, it pairs simplistic features with unusual shapes, forming a unique character. The living room shows this best, with chequered windows lighting a mottled grey couch and crafted wooden chair. Stencil lights and a TV bring technology, while a view from the lounge shows a white-and-wooden wall cabinet bearing busts, books and frames.

The view from the dining room shows more unusual finds. An unlikely pairing, copper-domed hanging lights in stretched triangles front a white-and-blue crop circle triptych. A simple wooden table allows a fifth chair to break the mould, in laid-back wooden framing. A stark black piano with ornate looking seat sits beside, as three wall hangings compete.

In the entrance, a black-and-white chequered floor paves a corridor. Warm wooden cabinetry helps add warmth, while a small copper light references the dining room and lights the way.

Gorgeous Contemporary Home with Autumnal-Hued Decor

As Christmas nears, autumn makes its way to many of our homes around the globe. Gone are the fresh, light, summery hues, replaced with a darker, warmer, more comforting palette. An easy way to introduce these hues, without using darker (and often more expensive) wood tones, is to inject burnt orange and olive green – the colours of autumn. This snazzy apartment in Silesia, Poland was designed to house the season within the confines of modernity. Visualised by Plasterlina, its charcoal and wooden background meet colour blocks of autumnal hues, with little pops of colouring playing in-between.

The living room beckons in a bold display of autumnal tones, started off by an olive feature panel housing a clock and stacked wood. As golden Chinese lanterns dangle from the ceiling, charcoal blocks out a TV panel, woollen rug and block sofas. Pops of unexpected orange in couches and walls add warmth, while light wood lies calm in a bookcase, floor and central table.

Leading out of the living room, burnt orange surprises in a charcoal-clad hallway. Pops of colour stand out in places to hide shoes and hang coats. Ceiling spot lighting guides the way.

The focal feature of the room, the olive wall presents two sides: one living, one dining. Beside logs of wood, a similar-shaded dining table and floor blend in. Charcoal walling, a rug and dining chairs are lit by drop lights, while a glass bottom panel brings nature.

Further on to the kitchen, a two-piece block bench halves the room again. Featuring a burnt orange stencil as a focal point, potted plants can sit and offer a window to the rest of the space. Viewed together, the kitchen and dining areas act as a corridor.

The kitchen’s little features make all the difference. A stack of wine bottles remind of the stack of wood in the olive wall. Green potted plants show through the orange stencil, pairing the two for autumnal magic. Different angles show existing green counterparts, while charcoal and light wood unite the space. White demarcates the kitchen cabinetry. A small wooden bookcase hides more colourful reads in the corner.

Views through the space show complementary elements. From the living room, wooden chairs refer to wider wooden flooring. From the dining room, charcoal walls and oblong shapes make the space seem one. From the kitchen, the olive wall and burnt orange stencil continue the autumnal theme.

Bookcases provide a great way to store the household’s knowledge. Lining the corridor to the bedroom, their mostly-white covers refer to the kitchen, in charcoal and wood.

The bedroom shows a more minimalist side in simple wooden and charcoal shades. Looking out to a concrete patio, bedding and curtains sit in the same grey hue as a padded feature wall. Wooden features match the floor in mirrors, chairs, clocks and a bedframe. Lighter grey walls either side offer almost-white spaces. Dandelions make a wish on a side table.

A walk-in wardrobe reminds of our first corridor, without the burnt orange. Culminating in a mirror, charcoal and wood open up to show two sides of the bedroom. Compartmentalised oblongs reflect the contours of the wider interior, with central cubbies lit by LED lights.

A corridor in charcoal and white is a breath of fresh air, feeling #homey. Met by a study and rumpus in olive and white, its feel is different while retaining the theme. Wooden bookcases take on a block shelf quality. Ottomans and hanging lights surround, but in white. An office space, rather than wardrobe, is compartmentalised in the corner. Hanging block art makes the space feel informal.

Burnt orange dominates the bathroom. A large, lacquered desktop and mirror in the hue frame a lit mirror, reflecting a red hue in the white space. Rounded porcelain sits quietly in a bed of charcoal, while an all-white room takes on a block bath. From a shower framed by a simple glass panel, the orange desktop looks almost burlesque, with a single hanging light illuminating its space.

Olive green takes its turn in the ensuite, a corner away from the wardrobe. Framed in the same style as the burnt orange, two hanging lights designate two sinks – one for him, one for her. The sinks allude to a white tiled square below, while a charcoal section holds the necessities.
