Ethnic style

The interior in the ethnic style forms unique signs of the cultures of other peoples, mostly interior elements are made of natural materials; Its aesthetics form clay or wooden accessories, rough textiles, etc. Ethnic style in the house provides for the creation of an environment using the national color, characteristic of the traditions of a particular people, of a particular culture. Another, an indispensable attribute of this style are wicker furniture and textured surfaces.

Therefore, for example, the Mediterranean design with its juicy colors, the abundance of smalt and ceramics, shiny gilded accessories and woven draperies can also be called ethnical as Japanese minimalism or Scandinavian naturalness, German pragmatism or Indian “fairy tale”.

Signs of style

To create a fabulous mood of Arab culture, it is enough to take advantage of accessories – numerous pillows and rollers, decorated with brushes, embroidery and beads, carpet with oriental patterns; Jugs with a high narrow neck, covered with chased patterns. A small octagonal table with inlaid or carved, hookah, silk and brocade on the walls and windows will help you in creating the right mood. The main thing is not to overdo it with details.

Chinese style in the interior contributes to the reflections – “music of the wind,” the murmur of fountains. One of the specific features of the Chinese interior is the complete absence of curtains on the windows. Science Feng Shui welcomes natural light. In a traditional Chinese house, you will not find a chandelier – the lamps are hidden behind screens or in paper lanterns, the shades of corrugated paper are very common.

Unlike the asceticism of the Japanese tradition, the Chinese more fully use the internal space of the premises – niches, arches, cabinets. There are many cabinets that were and are simple household items.

Japanese housing is the realm of space, air and light. The interior is based on several principles. The first principle – straight angles and straight lines create that very calm space and freedom of circulation of air, light and thought.


The second principle, without which Japanese housing is inadmissible – harmony with the outside world and connection with nature. And since all living things are in constant motion, then the Japanese house is also easily transformed. The walls are decorated only with wooden beams – strictly horizontal or vertical. No wallpaper in the flower or berry, or textured plaster – everything is strict and simple.
