Japandi (or Scandinavian) is one of the latest decor trends this year right now and it’s here to stay. What is Japandi? This is a mix of two styles: modern and rustic Scandinavian and traditional elegance of Japanese decor. Unsurprisingly, these two styles are blended into one. Both are about creating functional interiors with some statement pieces and not a lot of decor. Together, these styles create an amazing take on minimalism that’s cozier and more comfortable than it is: Nordic style features cozy rustic accents, while Japanese design offers a more diverse color palette and warmth. Interested? Then let’s look at some principles by which you can build such an interior.
The Scandinavian style features a mix of light, neutral tones, natural woods and pastel accents. The Japanese style features stained or light woods surrounded by striking black accents. To get a Japandi room, create a mix of dark tones and light wood, the accents also need to be monochrome if you want to add vibrant accents with a natural feel, e.g. B. Indoor plants. Try a timeless black + white + light wood for a beautiful, modern and cozy room.
Choose furniture of both styles
Both Scandinavian and Japanese furniture are characterized by clean lines and functionality, but there are some differences: Nordic furniture is usually light, and Japanese furniture is often darker in color and more elegant in shape. Use a mix of furniture – some pieces in one style, others in another, don’t hesitate to use different shades of wood and both curved and straight lines, they will add interest to the room.
Adding instructional accessories
You won’t see many accessories in either Nordic or Japanese rooms as these styles are all about functionality. To bring the Japandi style into your space, choose some statement accessories very carefully and take few with you. If you rely on natural elements like plants to liven up the interior, they’re a good idea for both styles. Another idea is to add accents with chic natural materials like stone. When decorating a bathroom, you can place the bathtub on a large stone slab with a raw edge – a strong wow factor is guaranteed! Elsewhere, you can put some stone stands where you want and display something.
