Trend alert: Far Eastern

posted: July 2016

Far Eastern Look: Amtico Signature Quill Gesso in Woven laying pattern

Above: Quill Gesso in Woven laying pattern - The Canvas, Designers' Choice

From bedrooms to living rooms the Far Eastern trend is easy to recreate with a few simple flourishes. The bright and detailed florals of this colourful throw immediately give an Oriental flavour to the room and this is complemented by the midnight blue lamp on the authentic bedside table.

For the flooring, the pale grey of this Signature Wood Quill Gesso wood really sets off the whole scene. There is just enough intrigue in the woven laying pattern to add a touch of mysticism but it’s not bold or distracting. Much as you would expect for a Far Eastern trend, there is a careful balancing act.

Tips to bring east west

If you like this trend as much as we do there are some simple ways you can introduce it to your home. Experiment with a few finishing touches before going for a complete room makeover.

  • Red is an important colour in oriental style and can work well for lamp bases, lampshades and wallpaper
  • Antique glass vases in deep blues and greens make lovely additions
  • Opt for a colour palette of blues, such as this Mariana Blue from Fired Earth, Pink Ground from Farrow & Ball or Radicchio Red, also from Farrow & Ball

Shop spy: This striking GB and J Oriental Bird wallpaper would make a perfect feature wall, from John Lewis.
