How to Create a Japanese-Inspired Home

If you want a Japanese aesthetic, then you may be wondering how to create a Japanese-inspired home. It’s actually very easy, as the style is based on natural elements and materials. It also focuses on the use of black and Wabi-Sabi aesthetic, which means “the beauty of a broken thing.”

Natural elements

The Japandi style of decorating is known for its emphasis on the use of natural elements. Neutral earth tones such as beige, cream, and brown are often used for the interior design. Bright natural colors such as red, green, and orange are often used as accent pieces. For added flair, use natural elements as decorative accessories. And make sure to use natural materials when possible, including bamboo. You can use a combination of natural and synthetic materials to decorate your home.

Black

If you are looking for a unique design for your home, then you might want to try a Japanese-style apartment. Japanese interiors are characterized by light wood and bamboo. They are known for simulating coniferous forest species. In addition to wood for the walls, Japanese style apartments use bamboo for the flooring. Bright accents are incorporated throughout the interior. The final product is not only scented, but also insect repellent. What’s more, the ash from burned incense can be used as fertiliser for planting.

Natural materials

Aside from natural pigments, Japanese painters also use other materials to produce their works of art. Traditionally, nihonga use paper as their support material. Unlike other support materials, paper is easier to work with and will last longer. Currently, nihonga also makes use of mineral pigments and Nikawa glue as adhesives. As a result, nihonga paintings contain a large amount of natural pigments.

Wabi-Sabi

When attempting to emulate a Japanese home, a great way to achieve the look is by using items that have undergone a process of ageing or are simply outdated. Wabi-Sabi is the Japanese style of accepting imperfections. It’s reminiscent of the art of kintsugi, the process of repairing broken pottery. This ancient Japanese technique consists of filling cracks with a special type of clay that makes them a permanent part of the piece. Another Japanese style is Hanami, a festival celebrating the annual blooming of cherry blossoms. This type of decor is ideal for Wabi-Sabi style, as it can be both beautiful and functional.

Multi-functionality

In Canada, multi-functionality is an important discussion topic. However, in international trade, the concept is still somewhat controversial, as it is seen as a potential conflict of interests. However, the Japanese are engaged in a more progressive debate about multi-functionality. The Japanese view multi-functionality as closely linked to production and the other functions of agriculture, such as creating rice paddies and preventing soil erosion.

Eco-friendliness

The Japanese are very conscious of their environment, and this is reflected in their lifestyle. During the school holidays, they often participate in activities that are environmentally friendly, like planting trees or turning off the lights when not in use. Likewise, they are aware of the issues faced by Earth and are thinking of possible solutions. If you want to enjoy a green, eco-friendly lifestyle, you should try to incorporate a few eco-friendly practices into your daily routine.

Natural light

The key to creating a Japanese style bedroom is to allow as much natural light into the room as possible. Avoid using heavy drapes as they will block the light. Bamboo shades or sheer gauzy curtain panels are ideal. Alternatively, you can place a simple plant on your bedside table or in a corner of the room. A small potted plant on the floor will also add an element of natural beauty to the room.
