I doubt Mr. 'Stone' needs to compensate in that area. Perhaps he should consider a nice 'rock garden'?

Question to Brian: is the whole room going to get a makeover, or just 'dressing it up a bit' in temporary digs? If the latter, I would check out the most used 'line of sight', or a high impact area (like a window), and think about 'nature' as a theme.

For example, my office is a refurbished dorm (think Army...it was built to house ex-GI's). Not much one can do around desks, file cabinets, etc. But the window has 'evolved' with cast off plants, odd knick-knacks (Japanese bean bags, origami, etc), a zen/rock water fountain a coworker gave me.

More 'zen' than 'Asian'.

No room is complete without a "Velvet Elvis" painting.

Use your imagination. You don't have to have the one where he is in the blue sequined jumpsuit. You can get one with him in a gi!

Classy and MA related! Hang it above your heart-shaped, rotating, vibrating bed(the one with the purple velour comforter) and you'll have to beat the chicks back with a stick!!

lol ok. I get the feeling everyone thinks I'm silly with this idea. The swords wouldn't be on a wall I said on the mantle(it's the thing above the fireplace) and on a stand.
The whole room would be centered around my award,kidding. I'll put up in the hall by my certificates.

I'd kind of like the whole room,but not too much stuff in there. I just don't want it to look tacky. Maybe I should hire a japanese girl to do it? Or get a japanese girlfriend for a while!
Know any good pick up lines Ed?

That'll probably get me slapped.It probably says "At the end of the day,I am still an ugly boy."

Brian,

Just a quick side note. Before we get back to the silliness.

I think a tastefully done asian inspired room is a very nice look.

We don't think the idea of you doing it is silly. I'd like to do it myself, but it doesn't often work with the South Florida/Carribeann theme.

Maybe you could hire a design consultant. This doesn't have to be an expensive venture (although it can be). $50-$75 will get someone to your home for about an hour and give you ideas, hear yours and get back to you in a few days with pictures of accessories,paint/color schemes etc.

It's when you get them to implement those ideas, that it starts adding up

FWIW

I like the Japanese decor, one thing to rememebr is minimalism when it comes to that sort of thing though. Otherwise it looks more like a whore house done up like a massage studio for my tastes

Seriously though. My old house used to be completely Japanese in design, it took me about three years to do fully then I got divorced and we sold it to split up the money, lol. Thus...

Don't do it with a partner, you'll only get your balls handed to you.

...I'm not going there. besides, I donated my gold balls to Sanchin31.

Brian, everybody likes a theme to decor. If you are doing it for yourself, then I suggest the same as budoc, consult a consultant.
If you are doing it to get layed, don't take any chances...decorate it yourself.
