In this open concept living area, an oversized paper pendant light helps to delineate the dining space. The clean lines of the table and mid-century chairs perfectly fit the simplicity of the overall decor.

Indoor View Through Glass French Doors at Asian Patio With Copper Garden Wall, Striped Floor and Dark Furniture With White Pads

Made from northern white-cedar and bamboo, this quiet pavilion beautifully complements its woodland surroundings. A small reflecting pond and lush vegetation all around ensure that the owners will want to sit and enjoy this space for hours.
This clever Japanese shoji panel closet runs along an entire 20-foot wall and has no side panels, so there’s plenty of room for clothes, a home theater, boxes, household goods and more. It was designed by Hanson Hsu of Delta H Design Inc., who used natural tone basswood with “Synskin” as a new technology substitute for delicate paper. The classic shoji design allows a beautiful contrast to the exposed wood trusses and concrete floors of the modern residential structure.
Asian Style Wet Bar With Dark Wood Cabinetry and Cherry Wood Countertop
The smooth dark wood of the cabinetry pops against the light, neutral marble tile of the floor and bright, white ceiling. The beautiful cherry-colored countertop perfectly displays the unique Asian vases and the flowers, bringing a small touch of color. In the background, a rectangle table with square stools can be pulled out for seating or stored easily against the wall.
Asian Dining Room With Long, Dark Wood Dining Table
A large neutral area rug and neutral walls create the backdrop for this Asian dining room. Glass cases display traditional Asian attire, providing beautiful and unique wall decor. Two dark wooden buffets surround the white fireplace and echo the dark coloring of the long dining table. Low-back chairs rest under a large, rectangular light fixture.
A sleek double vanity is topped with neutral travertine countertops, integrated stone sinks and matching circular mirrors. The large walk-in shower uses porcelain tile with a bamboo effect to add visual height, while a glass block window streams in natural light.
A narrow hallway leads to this elegant Asian-inspired powder room. The bathroom features a freestanding vanity with Shoji-style doors, an arced onyx sink, a wood-framed mirror and a brown tiled accent wall.
Asian-Inspired Spa Bathroom With Rain Shower and Freestanding Tub
Designer Jennifer Gilmer wanted a large freestanding tub and a shower in her master bath, but lacked the room to put them side by side. A trip to Japan inspired her to combine the two in an open space — this arrangement is common there. The light-flooded modern bathroom, with black mosaic tiled floor and insets and tan subway tile walls, features a deep sink, ceiling-mounted rain shower and oval-shaped pedestal bathtub.
This Asian-inspired media room is both sleek and comfortable. The cabinetry, with recessed lighting, allows for easy access to media and storage, but is easily concealed when reading a book or entertaining guests. The zebra wood drawer faces and Asian-inspired coffee table provide a world traveler feel to the room. Faded burgundy sofas are arranged around a square wood coffee table accessorized with two small elephant statues.
