What can you do when you are sad, tired, or simply uninspired? Most of us indulge in a delicious meal, a shopping spree, or a weekend getaway. Apart from these options, you can also consider sprucing up your home! Decorating your home will instantly make you happy and leave you with a better space!

If you would like to improve your home, you should consider modern Oriental decor! A few Asian finds can change the look and feel of your private sanctuary. To help get you started, here are some handpicked pieces:

When you think of Oriental style, red always comes to mind! Red is a popular choice because it is an auspicious color that symbolizes joy and good fortune. However, this shade may be too strong and can look rather gaudy.

If you want a more modern look in your own home, choose traditional Eastern pieces with unexpected colors! For example, you can choose a pair of bright blue foo dogs that look interesting and attract good luck.

Blue Foo Dogs, P3,999.75 a pair; Two-tone Brown Scarf, P499.75; both from L’Indochine; Gazelle Wall Accent, P14,000; Potted Succulent, P5,500; Green Vase, P4,500; Garbo Dining Table, P67,500; Large Wood Pattern Vase, P19,500, all from KISH; Blue and Gold Cloth, P400 per yard, Bloomingdales Fabric Center

Chinese garden stools have been used for at least a thousand years. These glazed stoneware or porcelain stools are usually covered with intricate symbols and patterns.

You may also want to choose a unique stool! For example, this metal one is lighter than stoneware and porcelain, making it easier for you to move the piece around. The stool is even more special because of its hammered finish and the outstanding shape

Bronze Garden Stool, price available upon request, Purple Orchid Home Large Ceramic Bowl, P999.75; Dual Core Bowl, P399.75; Silver Platter Antler, P4,999.75, all from L’Indochine
