With Asian themes conquering the global scene, Asian design philosophies have spilled over into Christmas home décor as well. Looking to bring the flair of the East into their homes, many American families have turned to applying Asian fusion principles to the traditional Western picture of Christmas. So whether you’re passionate about the East or are just looking for new ways to decorate your home, try these easy tips on how to incorporate Asian elements into your design:
Deviate from the usual red and green Christmas color palette. Bring Asia to your home by incorporating shades of muted gold and pink into your designs. These muted colors work best in setting the mood for Asian-inspired décor. Wrap your presents in light pink or red wrapping paper and tie a gold ribbon around them. If you can, knot the ribbon to emulate a traditional Japanese paper fan. In place of the usual bright red, green, and gold Christmas balls hanging on your tree, consider changing the colors to pastels as well. A mix of pale yellow, pink, green, and blue ornaments makes a great combination.
