Perhaps you’ve heard of the concept “East meet West” which is a merger of architectural styles from the ‘East’ and the ‘West’. This merger is a good way to give a different nuance in your home, buildings and interior design. Architecture and interior design ‘east meet west’ requires high instinct or sense of design to look adorable. Here is an article in the newspaper ‘Seputar Indonesia (Sindo)’ as a results of an interview by Ms Raya from the Koran Sindo to me.
In the Koran Sindo: Express Your House Style with East Meets West concept
CONCEPT of architecture style for house design ‘east meet west’ is still a favorite. It combines the two cultures that make the house look unique and beautiful.
In addition, the application of the two ‘force’ makes a home look more elegant. According to Probo Hindarto, ‘East Meets West’ architecture is a concept that is applied to a house by combining the two in one style, decoration, or architecture or interior design.
This is much driven by the desire to get a new touch in design, such as the combination of modern architecture with ethnic-style decoration, or the traditional architecture of the “East” combined with modern decor.
However, Probo explain that application of this concept in Indonesia is very appropriate, could even be an interesting design idea. “We can see that houses with mixed style of East and West have become a trend, even applied in the modern home architecture, which is filled with lots of furniture, artifacts, and ethnic-style home accessories,” added Probo.
Furthermore, he also said the concept of East and West is originally being set by western people. Because they want more of western-style architecture than just modern architecture.
For example: Design of a water container in ‘Zen’ style from Japan, when combined with modern style will appear as a blend between East and West. While a lot of classical architecture has stagnated and no longer developed. Probo said, the concept of east meet west is a modern architectural concepts for the framing or building concepts, whereas for more on the interior will be ‘east’.
That is, including adding decorative elements of ethnic style from the “East”, like China-style decor, or Javanese. This specialized feature of the house color is usually tend toward neutrals colors of natural materials for a modern style.
As for the color of the “East”, usually appears as a color from traditional elements, such as red from Chinese culture, or the color green, yellow, and red from Java and Madura culture, or others.
Interior design is often a blend of modern furniture and ethnic furniture, decorative elements were added with approximately the same. Architectural concepts of Western and Eastern styles actually been around since the last decades.
It is said, because one will want to break the rigid image of the International-style homes and many homeowners combines Western charm with stylish ornaments from the East.
