Eastern charm and serene blue accent colors run through this modern family home interior, visualized by Shexia Space Design. In ancient Feng Shui philosophy, birds represent freedom, strength, wisdom, love, and happiness, so bird-themed decor was used around this home to promote positive energy. This motif is present in the modern tea room, while a more traditional tea room in the home adheres to an understated, neutral aesthetic. Birds reappear in the master bedroom, where they take flight over a romantic canopy bed and a unique, custom-built, cylindrical bookcase. Bird-print wallpaper decorates a stylish kid’s room with a cute play space. And finally, a Crane mural makes the bold focal point of an elegant bathroom design.
