When it comes to building your dream home, picking just the right style is one of the most exciting parts. You can channel your own personality, work with a fun color scheme, and choose furniture that will go well with your chosen elements. However, with tons of styles to choose from and pieces to consider, it can be a bit overwhelming. If you're planning to create an Asian-inspired look like RL Reader Lilibeth, design consultant Grace Moslares shares these easy tips:

Start with a relaxing color palette

Achieve a peaceful vibe by working with hues that help evoke tranquility. Colors like beige, taupe, or any neutral-shade for the walls can complete a simple yet sophisticated Asian-themed space.

Embrace the outdoors

Elements of nature like wood and stones must be seen inside an Asian-inspired home. To create a natural ambiance, choose hardwood furniture pieces for your coffee table and pair it with abaca chairs or rattan ottomans.

For you garden or foyer, consider adding riverstones on the pathway.

Pick the right accessories

Choosing authentic décor pieces can make a room stand out without going beyond your budget! Use finds and souvenirs from your travels like Buddha heads and antique vases. These are prominent pieces in most Asian-inspired homes as these showcase Asian culture and traditions.
