Japandi style: how to create the new trend at home

Soothing colors are inherent in both Scandinavian and Japanese design, so it is not surprising that their mix repeats the choice of predecessors. All natural, earthy colors like gray, white, beige are not only popular for japandi, but also especially relevant this season. So that the situation does not turn into a vague pastel spot, the neutral gamut is shaded with dark blue, terracotta, brown, as in the interior with the Hamburg chandelier. The emphasis are also permissible, but most often these are pale, dusty variations of shades familiar to us (yellow, mint, blue, olive).

Abundance of light
Both styles go with natural lighting with love and awe. This is why the windows in the Japandi interiors are always large, open. In the evening, the option of the "sun" is performed by artificial light. It should be bright and, if possible, various.
Models with open lamps are preferred for the main light, like the Bologna chandelier - so the light is more intense. For zone are used lighting, wall lights, table lamps, floor lamps.

The higher, the more painful it is to fall - it seems that the Japanese are guided by this principle, choosing household items. You will not see high bar racks and chairs here and even a dinner ceremony is often held on the floor. It is not just about cultural traditions: the land of the rising sun is constantly suffering from earthquakes and tsunamis. Any house can hide under the cover of the unbridled natural disasters, so many generations of Japanese learned not to get attached to one place, sleep on mats, use a minimum of furniture. Japandi adopted this feature: although Japanese asceticism is not fully repeated here, furniture is mainly low - as in interiors with chandeliers Bremen and Hamburg.

You can forget about сurtains with floral pattern, pillowcases with geometric pattern and about any prints as well. Japandi, unlike the more tolerant scandi. Monotone and natural fabrics are preferred.
The fact is that the abundance of drawings is another obstacle to immersion in zen. You will rarely see reproductions of famous paintings or creations of modern artists. Most often, there is an inconspicuous abstraction, as in the interior with the Bremen chandelier. Concentration on chaotic patterns is perceived as another way of meditation.

Scandinavians did not have to hide from the tsunami, therefore they do not prefer such radical minimalists, but they also like freedom of movement. Japandi unites the aspirations of two directions, trying to cleanse the space as much as possible. A tall bookcase with dusty foliants or a storefront clogged with figurines is definitely not about japandi. All unnecessary things here hide out of sight and carefully think through closed storage systems. Even the recreation area can hide to stay in a niche, as in the interior with Chianti's chandelier.

Decor with a sense
Neither Scandinavians, nor even the Japanese are real fans of decorative delights. Such restraint meets several tasks at once: on the one hand, it frees space, on the other it helps to comprehend zen, reducing the visual load on our already excited brain. For example wall wooden saucers, as well as the rounded lampshade of the Hamburg lamp, are a reference to heavenly bodies. The Valencia chandelier is a reminder of the flowing waterfalls, the speed and ease of being.
