Oriental design room ideas – 10 of the best

10 images

Oriental design is some of the most striking in interiors. Drawing on the rich history of Asia, this beautiful trend will give any home an instant injection of glamour. And choosing an Oriental scheme doesn’t mean every room will look the same: Mix a range of Eastern elements together with contemporary design to create your own unique look.

What do you need to know about Oriental design, before you start? Oriental design is grounded in a floral motif, mostly featuring beautiful cherry blossom, lily or rose prints. Choose statement wallpaper in a vibrant colour, or soft furnishings printed with beautiful Eastern scenes to get the look. Team striking jewel colours with paired-back furniture and fittings to give your room a modern edge.

Other signature features of Oriental design include black wood and bamboo furniture, which you can team with brightly coloured accents and natural flooring to great effect. If you are looking to add a more subtle touch of Japanese or Chinese style to your home, ornate wall art in a contemporary room will create an exotic statement.
