Asian Inspired Decor: Chinese Garden Stools and Oh So Versatile!

Chinese garden stools are gorgeous, versatile and affordable. They also can play multiple roles, serving as extra seating, a side table, a garden seat, or object d’art to add a dash of Asian inspired decor into any room from bathrooms, outdoor living rooms to bedrooms and living rooms. I found a selection of Chinese ceramic garden stools to match up to these inspiration photos. What is your favorite?

Asian Inspired Decor With Buddhas

How do you decorate with Buddhas? Who is Buddha anyway? These blogs inspire me to bring in Asian inspired decor by way of Buddha heads  subtlety into your living spaces. I think the Buddha imagery helps to remind me to take a deep breath, keep calm and carry on.

Best Asian Inspired Decor and DIY with One Special Element

Vera Wang Los Angeles House Harper's Bazaar JadeLuckClub

I posted previously on Vera Wang’s new, gorgeous Los Angeles Post Modern Minimalist house using photos from the real estate site. What’s so amazing is that now that Vera has moved in, she’s kept the decor minimalist but added that Asian tweak using just one accent piece. In this case, it’s an enormous bonsai tree.

With one key accent piece in mind, I searched for moderately priced pieces to bring an Asian element into any decor. What’s great about Asian inspired accents is how well they seem to work with any styles or periods. If you are DIY type, you can add an element of Asian home decor yourself using these photos for inspiration.

p.s More picture of Vera Wang’s house here and a post about her tiger mom upbringing here.


A bonsai plant makes an elegant and noticeable statement when it’s large, but smaller and more moderately priced trees can also do the trick. Perhaps you might think of a bonsai plant when you need to replace your houseplant?

Chinese Garden Stools

I like to use these Asian Garden Stools in the living room as end tables. They also double as extra seating both indoors or out. A pop of color is an unexpected surprise.
