“Japanese style evolves around clean and uncluttered living, holding tightly to balance, order, ancient customs and a love for natural beauty”.
ASIAN COLOR TRENDS FOR 2021
White is a fantastic backdrop, almos like a blank canvas to be creative. It makes the space feel bigger, cleaner, and it neutralizes the darker hues. It is also a trick to help your color scheme stand out and not be lost in a sea of contrast and clashing hues.
Wooden objects and design pieces fill the floorboards, and you’ll find the white color scheme actually more interesting by injections of shades of light greens and browns.
The texture of wood can pretty much be seen in any house in Japan. Natural Elements such as wood or plants are going to be one of the number one trends for 2021.
Japanese cultureis all about the respect and love for Nature, so it’s time to bring a little bit of the outside to the the inside of your house. If you want, you can add traditional Japanese plants such as bomsai or bamboo, that will definitely add a special touch to the environment. Another way of bringing the outside inside is through large and expansive windows or sliding doors – that are the must when speaking about japanese style!
OPEN FLOOR PLAN
“Everything should have a purpose and a place — nothing is out of order or lacking function”.
Like we said before, Sliding doors are one of the top features of Japanese décor. You can also choose to go for the sliding screens – the idea is to create a big space where you can socialize. The Japanese culture usually had sliding screens, because the houses used to be small and it was a cheap way to have different rooms and privacy, when needed. One important thing about screens is that they di not block the natural lighting.
These specific bath tubs are more than a bathroom piece: it is an extension of an entire bathing culture. In Japanese culture, bathing is seen as a healing process, a renewal – both spriritual and physical.
The stress-relieving properties of hot water have been extensively studied, and anything that promotes deep relaxation is an immediate health win. The science of the soak goes deeper than that, though. Immersion in hot water gives your body an automatic cardiovascular workout, dilating blood vessels and improving circulation, which in turn speeds up healing processes and helps to flush toxins from the body. Some modern designs even allow you to incorporate massaging air jets to enhance your hydrotherapy experience. It’s perfect for sore muscles after a run.
If you struggle with arthritis or chronic back and joint pain, regular hot baths have been shown to be remarkably therapeutic. With a Japanese soaking tub, you can indulge in spa-level comfort every day without ever leaving your home.
The depth of the water helps to keep it hotter for longer, and clouds of steam are part of the experience. Breathing in deep lungfuls can ease breathing and help with congestion — excellent for getting through cold season in comfort.
MINIMALISTIC JAPANESE DESIGN
Most of Japan’s furniture is low to the ground, or when it comes to tea ceremonies, floor cushions usually forgo furniture. Mimicking this design aesthetic can be as simple as incorporating low-to-the-ground furniture into our homes.
