Another interesting trend in interior furnishings is Japandi, a new sensational concept of understanding living space. We talked about the Lagom , one of the trends that will be the protagonists of 2018, aiming at revising Scandinavian interiors in the opting for a more “hot” minimalism.
Japandi is born with a mix of Japanese and Scandinavian style, based on the minimal concept. If you have never heard of it, you are in the right place. Here are the best tips to easily create a unique Japandi style.
The name comes from the melting of Japanese and Scandi
Japandi is easy to recreate
The Japandi trend, the last cry in interior design, is based on a fundamental principle. The simplicity. The spaces featured in this style point to essential furnishings, tones not too bright and order. An important element is to point to the green </ strong>. For this style it is essential to create angles with vases and natural plants. Often attention focuses on plants, which are the focal point of this trend.
Japandi means order
This style comes from a Japanese theory that makes order a style of thought and a lifestyle. Reorganizing means cleaning and wiping the mind. Living in a clean place with very free space gives space to creativity. Excess objects are resized. In this philosophy of thinking that is increasingly developing in Europe, the pursuit of the essence in everyday life is a steady point. What is superfluous must be eliminated to create vital space. So is Japandi’s philosophy. Only the essential in an orderly way, without contrast or excess can create a true relaxation environment.
Wood as the main element
In Japandi style an essential element for materials is wood. In the dining room, for example, a rectangular wooden long table can be the protagonist, embellished with a beautiful plant in the center table. Colors are above all pastel colors. A winning co-worker can be a light pink with green. Next to the table, there is enough furniture on which to rest another plant and a small bookcase in the background, nothing more. Order is the element that overrides the interior.
In general, all materials are good that they are natural and of high quality
Play with accessories for a unique Japanese style
A minimalist decor does not rule out the use of accessories to beautify the environment, but they are rather resized than usual. An idea is to stay in the living room to embellish the wooden table in front of the couch with books arranged stacked in groups of two or three.
With Japandi, count on neutral and pastel colors
A tip to recreate a Japandi style is to play in neutral and pastel colors. The color tones come from the current Scandi trend, with shades of blue and gray that tend to blue. However the differences consist of the introduction of shades like mint, emerald green, pink and ivory for a subtle difference in accent colors.
For those who want a unique and sought after style, an idea is pointing to a black tinted dark wall with light gray furniture used on sofas and armchairs.
I look very much in Japandi style and I look forward to proposing it to my projects!
