I stumbled upon Kishani Perera's portfolio and liked her way of incorporating Asian and Indian touches to primarily western interiors. Her designs very nicely illustrate the fact that oriental influence on design does not necessarily need to be over the top. Kishani has a bunch of interesting projects as part of her repertoire and she loves to use resources from around the world to bring an distinct interpretation of style to her client's homes. Here's a look at the designs from her portfolio that I liked :
Very simple and elegant arrangement on a side table. I really like the vase - reminiscent of traditional Indian pickle/chutney holders called 'martbaan' (in North India). Readers from India: I would love to know what are these called in your region :)
Old wooden chests work very well as a table
Traditional Indian furniture painted in bright colors add a touch of quirkiness to this room
Bright 'sindoor' holder from Benaras on the centre table. These are available in many different sizes.
I like the cosy warm feel of this room with a 'diwan' style sofa and bright cushions
Like the wooden wardrobe at the back
Isn't the wall color brilliant! The fabric on the bed has a design similar to that found in handloom fabrics from North East India
