Oriental influence

Take inspiration from 2024’s Lunar Year mythical creature, the dragon. A traditional Chinese festival, commonly known as “Guo Nian”, the festival heralds the start of spring in China, and the arrival of the new year. Celebratory customs include sticking Spring Festival couplets, buying New Year’s goods, and family dinners.

Here are some ideas to incorporate oriental design into your interior:

  • Oriental décor – Consider adding Eastern-inspired pieces, such as figurines, pottery, and artwork.
  • Natural materials – Eastern-themed homes often use natural materials and eco-friendly building materials, such as wood, stone, and plants, to create a sense of calm and relaxation.
  • Bold colours – Mix bold colours, such as red and black, and contrasting colours, such as white and blue, green and brown, into your design.
  • Fragrances – Bring fragrances into your aesthetic with wind chimes, fragrant candles, and sandalwood incense.
  • Screens – Often used in Chinese interior design, screens function both as decorative elements and room dividers.
  • Calligraphy – Scrolls of painting or calligraphy are characteristic of interior design in the East.
  • Feng Shui – The principles of balance and harmony in Feng Shui can result in gorgeously styled spaces.
