Ethnic room design

Ethnic room design
Low furniture, like this platform bed and the shelf next to it, remind me of the habit of oriental people to lounge close to the ground. You can toss a few pillows on the floor as well to create a cozy nook and multiply the 'living low' effect.

Color is commonly used in ethnic decorations. You don't have to paint your walls in bold colors, a patterned folkloric throw, some cozy pillows on the bed as well as bright accents, like a vase or a turquoise side table would be enough.

Ethnic room designA large view framing a blissful tropical scene would be ideal but probably a distant luxury to find in the city. You can always fake it, however, with a mural or a big framed photo of your favorite holiday spot. The bigger the picture the more will give out the desired feeling. 

Ethnic room designTexture is vital for an ethnic inspired environment. Rattan, seagrass, unrefined wood and wool will do the trick. As you see in this room, there is a plethora of such textures on the rug, the table lamp and baskets.

Ethnic room designNo need to say that there has to be at least one unrefined rustic piece of furniture in the room to induce an aged feeling. I like this side table but you can choose a stool, a chair or anything else that  you might come across and love.
