A canopy of soothing green bamboo leaves hangs over an outdoor shower area with hardwood ipe flooring. A Buddha sculpture enhances this outdoor area's calming ambiance, creating a tranquil escape from the surrounding bustle of New York City's Soho district.
Don't forget to incorporate the natural aspect of Asian style in accessories. Include Asian plants such as orchids and bamboo. The simple and minimalist feel of this style is the perfect background to show off beautiful objects and antiques, like this ornate lamp and statue of Buddha.
A white Buddha statue, among other Asian accents used throughout the space, introduces a Zen mood to this porch sitting area. Beautiful white furniture and sheer white curtains look even brighter against the natural background and neutral floor. Throw pillows add pops of accent color in red, purple and pink, while the pair of metallic tables adds a touch of glam to the design.
Designer Kimberly Lyons created a warm and inviting family room with well-blended colors and a slight nod to Asian decor. Buddha plays a prominent note in the artwork, and Lyons chose an Asian-inspired coffee and end table to work with the more contemporary furnishings of the room.
Neutral textiles create a serene environment in this master bedroom. Cream-colored curtains and textured shades block harsh light from the bay windows, while a large Buddha statue anchors the room in a zen-like ambiance.
This double sink vanity features a white marble countertop and thin tile backsplash strip. A large mirror with mounted sconce reflects the light in the room keeping the space open and airy. A Buddha statue and wood platform soap dish are the perfect finishing touches for the Asian design.
Looking over the stone kitchen countertop the room opens up into a spacious and inviting living space. The beige tone walls give a calm feel to the design and keep the room bright in the natural light. A contemporary chandelier draws the eye to the high ceiling. A black and white Buddha canvas is a fitting touch for the serene and stylish decor.
On the opposite side of the master bathroom, stones, wood and mosaic tiles continue the rich layering of textures. Vessel sinks leave enough countertop space to fit two in as well as a dressing table area.
Floating gold statues create a beautifully zen decor over the charcoal gray wall coloring of this den. The two-tone gray paint adds a shadowy detail to the corner that allows the gold to pop. Subtler gold wall decor mounted over the dresser ties in the color scheme and compliments the simple, contemporary style of the space. Details add varying textures while red flowers pop as an accent against the neutral tones.
Designers were careful to blend the indoor and outdoor spaces by taking advantage of sight lines from the home's interior design. The plants in the front courtyard and the back yard can be seen from the living room, kitchen, bedroom and hallways. Here, a sculptural cactus provides a backdrop for art inside the home.
