Design Concept: The peaceful simplicity of Japanese-style
When talking about Japanese style, it is all about Zen. A living style emphasized on tranquility, simplicity and a connection with nature.
Simple is the key when choosing color palette and furniture in any Japanese-style home. As we walked around this home, light and clean natural wooden elements can be seen everywhere, as a way to connect with nature. The owners have wide collection of books, hence, bookcase is a must in every room, to display their collection in the same time adds cultural touch to the space.
Genkan, the traditional Japanese entryway areas for a house, for removal of shoes before entering the main part of the house.
The philosophy of living harmonize with nature is clearly reflected in the Genkan area.
The great way to show your love for natural beauty is to bring nature indoor. And, the owners choose to keep their selection of plants simple, nature and green echoes the Japanese-style.
