Soothing, restorative, organized, tranquil, calming, natural.
These are all words used to describe Japanese interior design. They are also words that reflect how we want to feel in our home—regardless of design style.
Take a look at the 5 elements shown in the following photos. While they represent traditional Japanese design, we can incorporate them into our own home.
And because of how these elements make us feel, our home truly can help nurture our best life.
COLORS OF NATURE
Japanese Style 4
Nature has never made a mistake with the colors it surrounds itself with. They always work; they never clash. In this photos, you can’t help but feel soothed with the autumnal hues of red, brown, and yellow.
LIVE GREENERY
Via
A sure way to bring nature indoors. Not only beautiful, but living plants and trees purify the air and helps us feel calmer. They also have restorative value.
MINIMALIST TABLE SETTING
Minimalist serveware and table setting:
Not only restful to the eye, but food will look and taste better, too, with simple and clean-lined settings.
LACK OF CLUTTER
Japanese-inspired entryway design:
We all know the negative effects of clutter, but for most of us it seems to require a mindfulness to avoid it. The results, though, promise a serene mind second to none.
NATURAL WOOD
Japanese hinoki-wood soaking tub in a soothing all white bathroom:
Natural wood elements reflect nature and for human beings we’re happier when it surrounds us. It makes us feel more at one with our world
Until next time…
Blessings fro my home to yours,
