mosaic monday: now & zen: calming, asian-inspired mosaicsJanuary 29, 2016
In today’s hectic and fast-paced world, we all dream of stealing away a few moments for ourselves. After a trying day of powering through deadlines, fighting traffic, or caring for little ones, there’s something truly relaxing about melting into your favorite chair and whiling away the evening. Whether it’s just a few moments of rest or an evening of relaxation, nothing takes you to that place of serenity faster than soothing visual cues. Carefully arranged to create balance and harmony, Asian-inspired interiors elicit feelings of tranquillity and calm. While Asia is home to many wonderfully unique countries and cultures, today’s Asian-influenced interiors have strong Zen influences and are loosely based around stylings from India, Japan, and China. If you could use a little more relaxation in your life, one of these Asian-inspired mosaics is sure to take you to that place of tranquillity.
