“Japanese style evolves around clean and uncluttered living, holding tightly to balance, order, ancient customs and a love for natural beauty”.
Out To See
It’s commonly easy to recognize Japanese design by the abundance of natural materials, plants and specific selection of minimal amount of furniture. The first thing when starting a new project is to create a concept and choose the color scheme. Japanese prefer mostly neutral or restained light colors such as light beige, cream and white, and sometimes with a glimpse of red.
Lighting is one of the main features of this style: the selection of different kind of lights covered with paper creates a diffused lighting effect, ideal for the spirit of Zen philosophy.

Biophilia is the love for all things living and the key to biophilia design, such a trend when it comes to interior design. This idea has health, environmental, and economic benefits, and although its name was coined in recent history, indicators of biophilia design have been seen in architecture from as far back as the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
The appearance of the natural world, with its rich diversity of shapes, colors, and life, is universally appreciated and brings you several benefits, such as:
– Reduces stress levels
– Increases productivity
– Reduces sick days
– Makes workplaces more attractive
– Reduces pollution and cleans the air by reducing noise levels
– Boosts creativity levels
Biophilic design, however, must be implemented correctly to optimize health benefits and potential monetary savings. Here you have the good practices to achieve a nice and beneficial ambiance:
Natural Environment – Features of the natural world that are incorporated into an office setting. Basic things like earthy colors, sunlight, plants, images of animals and nature.
Natural Shapes – Lines, shapes, and forms that occur in nature (arches and vaults, recreating rock shelves, water paths).
The texture of wood can pretty much be seen in any house in Japan.
“The right way to design a bedroom is to start from the floor, gradually moving up. Mat-tatami is ideal to cover the floor . Traditional tatami mats are made of rice straw and are very comfortable to walk without shoes. If there are no tatami to cover the entire floor, just lay a small tatami mat in front of the bed (…)
Furniture that is used in oriental culture has low legs. Therefore, a Japanese-style bed for a themed room should be as low as possible. Complete the bed with bamboo details and place the basic lacquered chest of drawers next to it. Instead of a bed, you can put a mattress right on the floor”, Pufik Homes
Choosing the right furniture is also a crutial point: functionality beats aesthetics, this means: only the necessary desisgn curated pieces.
Decorative items made from natural materials will also help you reach your gold of having a Zen décor.
Create a meditation space inside the house: “Paint the room in calming greens or browns, add some live greenery, play some calming music and Voila! You have your very own, very Zen Japanese hideaway”.
