Sleek, two-toned cabinetry with bamboo-inspired accents brings a modern, yet unexpected, look to this stylish and functional kitchen by designer Yuko Matsumoto. A stunning emerald green backsplash enlivens the room with color, and simple stainless steel pulls carry the finish of the appliances throughout the space.
A darker gray paint shade serves as an accent wall against the light wall and hardwood floor in this modern bedroom. A low, wood, asian style bed frame features a connected headboard and attached nightstands supporting white table lamps. A shag rug adds texture to the room and bright orange accent pillows provide a pop of color to the design.
The front door draws the eye in the midst of the surrounding bright, white walls and smooth stone patio. The distressed wood door frame displays patches of faded red coloring for a weathered and antique finish. A collection of potted plants compliment the green grate design over the doors.
Rich woods, paper lantern chandelier, bamboo plants and exotic artifacts root this dining space in Asian design. A distressed red credenza adds a bold pop of color along with an adjacent bright red vase.
A soft color palette of tan and sky blue pairs with Asian design to give this bedroom a serene, tranquil atmosphere. A sliding glass door provides access to a private patio and also allows natural light to infiltrate the room.
This lively powder room takes cues from Asian design with a multicolor decorative vanity and all-over brown wall tiles. A bronze globe light hangs overhead and features a cutout design, allowing the light to diffuse in interesting patterns. Charcoal tiles line the floor.
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.
A ceiling faucet trickles down into this bathtub bringing a waterfall effect to the room. The cup-like shape is a unique twist on the traditional bathtub look perfectly fitting for the crisp, Asian design. Frosted glass creates privacy without taking away from the bright look of the room.
Evening light highlights the warm landscape lighting on this patio. Lights shining up from the succulent garden reflect off the copper wall for a shining accent to the design. A blue and gray striped patio floor creates a light foundation for the calm, asian design featuring dark brown chairs with white cushions.
The homeowners also maintain a residence in Tokyo, and the low-slung furniture in the master bedroom of their Sonoma County, Calif., retreat gives a nod to Asian design sensibilities. Accents such as the framed fabric and woven pendant lights were chosen for their subtlety, creating visual interest without detracting from the stunning views through the picture windows.
The wall paneling in this exotic basement space is Hawaiian ohia wood, which gives the space the look of either midcentury modern or Asian design. The earthy tones of the contemporary sectional sofa and leather chair and the global-inspired prints of the ottoman and side table create a chic space for the homeowner who loves to entertain.
