Yes I do. I don't know if I guessed right or I read/saw it somewhere. I think it just appealed to my sense of style/structure. Looks too unstable with the long one at the top.

The kids have some things in their room...not intentional decorations really...just kind of a risidual mish-mash of memorobilia, personal effects and anime/game posters. In the living space you'd have to look at the bookshelf and the kitchen to see any Asian influence. I have this awesome rice-cooker...

the only things i have are qee, art toys. the basic shapes (bear, cat, dog originally) were originally designed in hong kong but the designs on them are from artists all over the world. http://www.qeester.com/sql/catalog.php the gallery part has every qee produced in. the art toy thing is just starting to come into the mainstream.

Hello Brian:

Have you considered emptying out an entire room? Absolutely nothing that isn't painted, or nailed down??? A simple throw rug (proportionately sized) if you must...

"Asian decorations" in some sense are more about being clutter-less, and demonstrating space and the illusion of space.

Merely a thought,
J

Let's revisit this thread shall we?

So far I've got a bamboo plant 7 shoots and a large painted fan with elephants on it. Not much,but I'm still working on it. I found a little zen garden with little rakes and rocks that looks pretty neat-o.
Also,I'm still planning on the traditional ceremonial sword above the fireplace on the mantle,I don't care what any of you think,lol.

I say go for the sword! it sounds pretty cool. you should make some artwork to go on either side of it above the mantle.

I made myself some really cheap asian artwork thats on my wall now. With about $15 invested you can make some awesome stuff.

I went to Borders books and found in the bargain book section a book on asian artworks. It was on sale for 4$ I cut out 6 of my favorite full page pictures to hang on the wall. I made the frames from a $10 bamboo table runner I got from Pier One. The runner was too long for my table so I separated it and used the bamboo bits for cool frames.

Martha-san would be proud..."Its a good thing"

I also bought a cool sumi-e set at the local museum and have been tearing up bits of rice paper and then regluing them on a backer to make a cool "deconstructed" canvas on which I will then paint a few selections from here: http://www.takase.com/MartialArts/MartialArts.htm

lol unfortunately I am not as artistic as I think so I may have bitten off more than I can chew here but I like the idea. it is cheap art though and I am serisouly poor. lol plus a bonus is, anyone who would see it would either not know it sucks or be too embarrassed for me to say anything. win-win scenario!
