Today, we will have a small trip around Japan talking about Zen Interiors.
Japanese culture is all about peaceful simplicity and modest designs. Couldn’t we all use a little bit of that peace and harmony in our home too?
Check out here different ways to add Japanese style to your interior design. (Source: Pinterest)
Japanese culture has a huge respect for nature. The best way to maintain a strong connection with the natural world is then bringing nature indoors.
Adding traditional Japanese plants – such as bonsai and bamboo – to your home will give it a small Japanese cultural touch. Japanese homes also bring nature inside through large, expansive windows that allow a view of nature from every angle. (Source: Pinterest)
Just like plants, elements of water are inescapable in the Japanese home. Ofuro, translated as bath in Japanese, is a restful tradition that is well-worth adding to your home. Japanese tubs create a spa-like environment that turn your bathroom into a refined escape. (Source: Pinterest)
An authentic Japanese screen is called a Shoji, and it is an essential design element in Japanese homes. Due to the high cost of housing, conserving every square inch of space is essential. Unlike doors, these Shoji’s slide back and forth, saving space that a swinging door would take up. (Source: Pinterest)
Adding natural wooden elements into your home is also a good way to harmonize with nature.
Walls, doors, screen grids and frames are all made of natural wood. Bamboo is also a popular wood used for decorative purposes.
The Japanese entry is called a genkan. This is where you greet visitors and also the place where you leave your shoes once you get in. The entryway has usually a shelf or cabinet called a getabako that is used for storing shoes, still is always an uncuttered place.
Low to the ground – basic rule. Applying this design aesthetic can be as simple as incorporating low-to-the-ground furniture into our homes. Japanese style furniture can easily be incorporated into your home. (Source: Pinterest)
