Crazy Rich Asians, what a great movie, well played by amazing actors and actresses. While most would say this movie created and showed diversity, I could not help but notice how detailed the furnishings were and thus this article. Capturing the stark characteristics by the 2 different monetary backgrounds.
If you want to live in a Crazy Rich Asian house, this is the article for you!
As seen in the movie, there was a drastic difference in the houses that Nick Young (played by Henry Golding) and PeikLin (played by Awkwafina) lived in. It can be easily identified as houses from ‘New Money’ and ‘Old Money’.
New Money Interior Designs→ Inspired by European royalty
Chandeliers are often seen in movies depicting royalties. The many crystals on the chandelier sometimes let people know how rich you are.
More often than not, the furniture is heavily inspired by the European palaces. For one, in the movie, it is stated that PeikLin’s house is heavily inspired by the Versailles Palace.
Live like royalty, eat like royalty. That is how the dining room will look like, a place fit for a king to eat.
Gold accents are very popular among the New Money, after all gold is the international symbol for being rich.
Want to sleep like royalty? Get plush, white and thick beds, they are commonly used to signify how comfortably the rich sleep.
I think this bathtub will even make the Queen jealous! Look at its fine details, the vibrant rose and the stunning gold.
Old Money Interior Designs→ Heavily inspired by colonial times.
Colonial typed houses use warm white lights as it creates a warm vibe to the house. In addition to the lights, allow natural light to shine through the house, making the house more very spacious looking and very luxe.
Large plushy sofas are the go-to, as family is very important to the Old Money, a common area with a large sofa is needed to sit the whole family comfortably.
Tables and chairs are often inherited, and comes from colonial times. To get that antique feel or luxe, go for wooden tables and chairs with intricate designs.
Bench for the house’s entryway, so guests can sit when they are wearing their shoes or table lamps to give the house a warm light feel.
Aaahh…this bathtub seems as though it’ll make me step out of the bathroom as beautifully as Pierre Png in the movie.
