Japandi is here to stay. It is too harmonious and timeless to be a mere passing fad. Clearly, Scandinavia and Japan are, despite their cultural differences, very close to each other when it comes to their sense of interior design and aesthetics. This fusion of styles shows how it can work perfectly.
The Minimal Design Everyone Loves
Interior design, like fashion, is always evolving but also coming back to the same origins. When it comes to home decor and interior design, the owner’s personality must be strongly present, but it also must follow the trends, to be contemporary, modern and adapt to the present’s lifestyle.
With new season fashion trends, new home trends are emerging. That’s the impute to home’s update, using what already exists, adapting it according to the trends and adding some new pieces. Although 2020 was a challenging year, it brought more time to be at home, enjoying it and valuing it. Therefore, more time and money are and will be invested in making the most of each space.
A mash-up of Elegant Japanese Minimalism and Rustic Scandinavian Simplicity, Japandi is the trend that brings together the best of both worlds. An interior design that combines simplicity, with clean lines and a subdued colour palette, the word ‘Japandi‘ has been used to describe the fusion of both styles.
Less is more, the motto. Some key elements make up this new trend, cosiness, timeless materials like natural woods, the colours where monochromatic tones reign and all hands-on craftsmanship as the main technique.
The Decor Essentials
Keep your modern, monochromatic hallway interior interesting by pairing different textures or adding small metallic touches.
