2. Neutral walls for soothing vibes
It is important you choose neutral colours like cream, beige, and taupe for your walls to give that comforting feel for your home. If you wish for a little more colour, add a little contrast by choosing light blue or pale pink as colours.
3. Art and décor come in play
If you wish to add more personality and spice to a room, art and décor can come in play. Lookout for quality and craftmanship as the Japanese value them in their designs. Handmade and local art are key items you should go for if you wish to jazz up your room and achieve the Japandi design.
4. Patterns make it better
Harmony is one the key themes of the Japandi design. Achieving a harmonious blend in design elements is an essential part of the design which can bring out the sooth feel in your home. An example is how curves can be balanced with straight lines to bring out that harmonious feel.
5. Natural beauty
Plants do help as a form of aesthetics in your room. Choose hanging plants like banzai, or bamboo, to achieve the cozy feel of the zen design.
Simplicity is a key factor of the Japandi style. So discarding what you don’t need is best to achieve the design. Furthermore, living in a clutter free house is best for the comfort of your family too.
To spice things up, add a bit of black in the neutral shades to create some pretty contrast. The colours grey and black are suitable to create a strong yet comforting feel when put together with the neutral shades.
8. Functionality and aesthetics
Avoid compromising your comfort for style. Choose durable and sustainable elements to fit into your home. If you follow the idea of merging comfort and practicality together, it’s one step closer to achieving the Japandi design.
