Design Tips For Thai Style

Designer Vicente Wolf Inspires With Tips From a Beautiful Bangkok Home

In his recent article in the Wall Street Journal, designer Vincente Wolf offered some beautiful inspiration and tips on how to give your home a taste of Thai aesthetic. By looking at the amazing home of Jim Thompson, an expat architect who revamped the Thai silk industry, Vincente offers practical advice on how to bring this calming and rich vibe to your home.

  • "Play with height." Vincente says it's integral to have a balance of different heights and focal points in the room.
  • "Casual is in the intent." A traditional floor plan and elegant furniture make the space feel livable.
  • "Sometimes it's not what you add, but what you take away." Being able to edit yourself is key when designing a Thai-inspired space.
  • "Brighten dark finishes with shimmer." Slight glittery accents can bring a sense of strong emotion to a room.
  • "Multitask with trays." Putting a tray on a plus-size ottoman can turn it into a practical coffee table.
  • "Neutral and nervy need each other." Balancing bright and neutral hues makes everything in the space feel easy and relaxed. While pops of color can make all the difference, Bangkok beauty does not intend to overwhelm.
