Japandi: The Fusion between Scandinavian and Japanese Design

2017 was the year for Japandi style: The mixture between Japanese and Scandinavian design. Though both styles share some philosophies–and part from minimalism–Japandi interiors are clean but warm and filled with the earthy elements of the Japanese culture. I’m talking about natural fibers like bamboo, rattan, paper, light woods and low furniture.

The walls also welcome a nice and inconspicuous change from cold whites to off-creamy whites, like wevet and satin... and how can I forget about wallpaper? Yes, making a comeback in the biggest way: bamboo wallpaper, anyone?

To me, this style has the best of both worlds. It makes Scandinavian design seem (unbelievably) more relaxed, while the Scandinavian philosophy adds in warmth.

  1. That's one interesting fusion to watch out for! ;)

  2. The wooden wall makes all the difference. Great work on the decor, really reminds of Japan but the colors are somehow Scandinavian.

  3. How fabulous! I love toad stools! I have they all about the house some crochet ones hanging from my pot rack, even some in mason jar candle holders.Fun in a box!
