Japandi Interior Design
Cultural fusion as an interior design trend is a bit like inviting the world into your home. And with its rise in popularity in 2022, we are seeing home interiors deviate from traditional décor toward a more global experience, showcasing eye-catching living spaces. A bright example is the Japandi style — a delicate blend of rustic modern Scandinavia with the added elegance of Japan.
Defined by muted tones, natural materials and clean laid-back designs, Japandi is a beautiful take on the minimalistic aesthetic. Each of its elements work together to deliver looks that are all-at-once mellow and inviting, functional and decluttered. Read on for some helpful steps on how to incorporate Japandi style into your own home.
Out with the clutter
Interior designers embracing the Japandi style would recommend shying away from bold patterns and cramped spaces. Do away with bulky or cluttered items. Instead, opt for highly functional furnishings with simple silhouettes. This will give the room a light, spacious feeling without losing the practical elements.
Consider Contrasting Colors
Carefully choose your colors. Japandi décor is largely based on contrast. Japandi-style homes feature a mix of dark hues, light woods, pops of pastels and soft neutral backdrops.
Bring in the light
Japandi lighting is used as an accent décor in addition to being functional. This style prefers lighting that is diffused and soft. Place light points using pendant lights, floor lamps and table lamps to create warmth in your space. Remember to select fixtures crafted with more natural looking textures, and fabrics, to complement the space rather than overpower it.
