How Japandi Design Can Bring Comfort and Simplicity to Your Home
Japanese and Scandinavian influences come together to produce a look that’s serene, organic, and refined.
A hybrid aesthetic combining the comfort and functionality of Scandinavian design with the simple elegance of Japanese style, the “Japandi” look is on the rise, regardless of one’s thoughts on the portmanteau.
It’s a natural marriage between two cultures that privilege minimalism and tranquility, and their differences also complement each other. The Scandinavian concept of hygge veers rustic, utilizing light wood, crisp neutrals, and simple layouts that can bring earthiness to a space; Japanese design contributes an emphasis on warm, rich colors and an indoor/outdoor experience that allows a home feel cozy, yet tied to the environment.
