A gold buddha sculpture makes a statement in this dramatically lit pool house and bar. Part of Miami Beach's Terra Veritatis estate, the pool house is one of numerous entertaining spaces in and around the luxurious, 18,000-square-foot property.
This living room's walls are painted a creamy beige hue to provide a serene backdrop for this meditative space. The furnishings are an eclectic mix of old and new, including a nineteenth century Buddha, a transitional beige armchair and an antique Oushak carpet.
This peaceful bathroom features a glass enclosed shower framed with gray and white marble tiles that continue along the bathtub. A cloud-like design decorates the tiles along the side of the bathtub, while a bronze Buddha sculpture and white orchids sit upon a double sink vanity.
Designer Kimberly Lyons chose just the right trinkets to display on the matching bookcases, which were installed on either side of the fireplace wall to give the family room a dash of elegance. The green-hued Buddha, placed adjacent to the couch, also creates an unexpected but lovely decorative addition.
A round, teal-painted dining table with coordinating chairs has been placed on an outdoor deck, which also features a forest green bench, three bright colored pillows, a Buddha statue and a thriving garden of flowering plants, trees, and ornamental grasses.
Designer Marie Burgos adds an exotic, Zen vibe to this Asian-inspired living room with a bust and hand of Buddha. Fresh splashes on apple green in the trunks used instead of a coffee table add to the room's globe-trotting flair.
A wood platform bed serves as the focal point of this tranquil Asian-style bedroom. A silver planter with large bamboo stalks and a gold Buddha statue flank the windows with floor-length neutral drapes and mounted pendant lamps. A frosted glass door and neutral bench complete the room.
White vessel sinks, mirrors with distressed frames and three bulb sconces create a double vanity set up in this contemporary bathroom. Individual shag rugs soften the floor and add texture to the space. Woodgrain panels add a vertical patterned accent wall. A Buddha statue and plant add a calm decor to the room.
Never underestimate the power of art, even in the bathroom. Oversized artwork can make a dominant design statement in a bathroom. Here, the large image and neutral colors of this smiling Buddha, selected by McNeal Walker Interiors for $20 at a home discount store, create a tranquil focal point and draw the eyes up and away from the more functional parts of the room.
A black and white three-fold headboard and Buddha art canvas bring traditional asian flair to the contemporary feel of this bedroom. A mix of throw pillows features yellow, orange and purple tones with a sheen finish reflecting the natural light from the windows. Midcentury modern nightstands support warm-toned table lamps on both sides of the bed. A brown rug is angled across the floor to create an interesting line through the room.
