Ten Oriental Design Ideas for Your Master Bedroom

If there’s one trend when it comes to interior design that has never gone out of fashion is it of course the Oriental theme – one that’s just as popular today as it’s ever been. In fact, the bonus for those looking to create an Oriental these days is the way in which the world has never been smaller or its treasures more accessible, meaning that the kind of decorative touches and adornments that were priceless rarities in years gone by are now incredibly simple to get hold of.

Take the following ten examples of wonderfully decorative touches to help transform a master bedroom in a single stroke:

  1. Paper Lanterns – The quintessential Oriental touch that cannot fail to bring any room to life, paper lanterns are as practical and affordable as they are effective. Traditionally displayed in various colours at times of celebration, there are infinite shapes, colours and designs on the market today that can be picked up for next to nothing.
  2. Mosaics – A stunning, creative mosaic made with broken Brick Tiles is something of a DIY project that’s well within the capabilities of pretty much anyone. This is one of the few instances where a lack of skill can actually work in your favour as the more rustic and haphazard the mosaic, the more authentic it often looks.
  3. Bamboo Blinds – One of the best things about the bamboo blind is the way in which it will blend in seamlessly with literally any existing interior design trend while adding that subtle Oriental touch you’re looking for. And again, they couldn’t be more affordable or practical.
  4. Painting Scrolls – Chosen and hung with care in the right place, an Oriental scroll painting has the potential to transform an otherwise plain wall into an incredible feature to be proud of.
  5. Statues – Be it the classic Buddha statue or really anything else from Oriental reaches of the world, there’s nothing that can bring a room to life and create talking points quite like stunning statues and icons.
  6. Shoji Room Dividers – Probably the most practical on the list, a shoji room divider has the potential to create an incredible Oriental feel while adding a practical divide to room and in no way imposing on any space available. Depending on the material chosen, they can also be extremely bright and breathe new life into the room.
  7. Mini Zen Garden – These are the small tabletop gardens which in the true traditions of Oriental simplicity sport nothing more than an area of sand with various rocks, pebbles and sometimes small statues.
  8. Futon Bed – Another incredibly effective touch is to replace a traditional bedstead with an Oriental inspire futon style bedframe – one that’s much lower to the ground
  9. Bonsai – A classic if ever there was one, there’s little that screams Oriental charm more than a handful of stunningly crafted bonsai trees around the bedroom.
  10. Simplistic – Last but not least, it’s sometimes easy to overlook how an Oriental feel can be achieved simply by going as minimal as possible and doing away with all clutter, instead favouring warm tones and block colours.
