Are you considering transforming your bedroom into an oriental inspired boudoir? It would be a fantastic idea as the oriental theme is minimalist and relaxing which is great for any bedroom. Changing your bed would be the first thing to do. Leather beds are a great choice as they give a sleek, unfussy finish to fit in with the oriental style. The colour scheme is rather subdued with accents of colour such as rich purple and vibrant turquoise, which complement each other beautifully.  They could feature in colourful prints such as bird or butterfly designs to help to define the oriental look. With a neutral backdrop, these patterns can really bring all the colours used in the room together. Lighting is very important when creating an oriental style bedroom. Usually light is diffused through paper which gives a great, soothing atmosphere. So you could use paper lamp shades to create the right look. Hanging the main light low and in the middle of the room will continue the oriental style. Keep accessories to a minimum, but a screen can be used to separate and hide, so if the minimalist look is becoming a struggle, conceal any clutter with a screen!
