So you love the airy, uncluttered look of Japanese-style interior design, and want to incorporate it into your own home. The Japanese philosophy when it comes to the home is using empty spaces to enhance the forms and textures of furnishings. This is why they keep the space bright, open and mess-free, and use mainly furniture pieces with subtle details, natural textures and clean shapes.
Consider four things:
Furniture: Items with natural tones and textures. Primarily wood furniture with smooth surface.
Colour: Light hues such as white, cream, browns, and pale grey.
Accessories: Items made of natural materials, such as ceramic, linen, and stone.
Nature elements: Greenery is good, be it towering plants or smaller potted shrubs.
