Japanese Interior Design – Perfect Harmony
We admire Japanese people for their attention to details which reflects in anything they do. Inside their homes, too, nothing is left randomly, with each accessory thus placed so to impart harmony, in simple decors, minimalist, but aesthetic, which highlight Japanese people’s life philosophy. These serene ideas is what we are going to enlarge upon below here, marking a few elements that define the Japanese interior design.
There’s probably nothing that represents a classic Japanese design than the traditional sliding doors which open up interiors to the nature outside, also an integral part of these tasteful decors. In simple forms, these are also practical design elements which bring a mysterious air to any room. The screens, also a landmark of Japanese interior design, reflect an atmosphere replete with tranquility, spreading diffused lights across the rooms.
The low furniture items are also a must-have in these interiors and play their part in the overall minimalist style in which space seems to stretch for ever, dedicated solely to family. Everything is bathed in light, either natural or artificial, giving interiors extended proportions. The images below are suggestive in this regard.
Bathrooms are also emblematic for the Japanese life style, bearing the mark of a secular tradition. Small tubs, with side sitting areas, in a well-lit room, are defining elements in the Japanese bathrooms which call for meditation and consummate relaxation, all in a décor kept simple as usual.
Bring nature inside, just as Japanese do, by different methods, which we also highlight in the images below. Plants, especially bamboos, bring extra vitality in an apparent still décor, breaking up the monotony by strong colors, regardless of the room where they are placed. A natural wood screen can also impart a distinct note in the rooms and hallways, adding elegance and freshness.
Japanese lamps and lantern come to complete these decors which burst with harmony, through their enigmatic light which boosts this perfect Zen state. By the bed or discreetly hanging from a ceiling, these lamps complete these traditional atmosphere, full of simplicity and naturalness.
