Explore JAPANDI Style: Breaking Free from the Dual Constraints of Simplicity and Complexity

by Rong Zhang 15 Mar 2024

Japanese Nordic style (Japandi) has become a new trend. This harmonious interior style combines the simplicity of Nordic style with the elegance of Japanese style, satisfying the function of family life and allowing us to obtain the peace of home. Japanese Nordic style (Japandi) is natural, bright and classic, it caters to the anti-internal young people's yearning for a minimalist and comfortable life, but also maximize the integration of function and design. Today I would like to share with you some tips for Japanese Nordic style decoration.

1. What is the Japanese Nordic style?

The European interior design style combining Japanese style and Nordic elements is called "Janpandi", which is a combination of Japan (Japanese) and Scandinavian (Scandinavian style), and the two have mutual influence. The use of natural textured materials combined with bright, neutral colors and clean lines creates a comfortable yet elaborately decorated space atmosphere, Japanese-Nordic style at the heart of both design concepts. The combination of Japanese style and Scandinavian style is based on the same aesthetic concept: presenting simplicity and tranquility, creating soft colors and smooth lines, showing the appreciation of the beauty of space and static beauty. But there are subtle differences between styles.

Traditional Nordic interior decoration tends to be dominated by cooler colors, with white walls being the most common. Japanese style, on the other hand, uses warmer, more natural colors. In Scandinavia, "hygge" (the concept of warmth and comfort) is the key word for soft wear, while Japan focuses on the philosophy of wabi-sabi, which simply encapsulates the search for beauty from imperfection. Both styles favor the use of natural materials, with light tones of solid wood being preferred in Scandinavia, while Japanese interiors favor darker shades. It was from the combination of these two similar styles that the Japanese Nordic style (Japandi) was born. Based on functionality, simplicity, natural elements and craftsmanship, Japanese-Nordic style captures the core of both design concepts. The result is a refined and timeless interior style with decor focused on quality over quantity.

2.How to "DIY" your Japandi style?

1.JAPANDI style the first thing to pay attention to is to keep a clean space, refuse the disorderly sense of disorder, the pursuit of quality, rather than the quantity of "blind obedience", according to the principle of less is more to decorate your home.

2.JAPANDI style is keen on the use of natural materials. The introduction of outdoor elements, such as wood, linen, rattan, bamboo paper, terracotta POTS, wool, green plants and other natural elements into the space, through the use of natural materials, bring people a sense of peace and tranquility and relaxation. Try your favorite indoor plants, but don't go overboard and put too many plants in one space.

3.JAPANDI style is a product of neutral minimalism. Using a neutral color palette known as earth colors, you can take inspiration from nature and find a color palette to decorate your home. For example, the wall can choose the warm white of earth texture, or other warm contrast tones, beige, cream, brown, gray, terra cotta color or even a bold choice of black, dark green, charcoal color, neutral tones make the space more large, a cleaner environment, creating a Zen atmosphere to heal internal friction.

4.With clean, linear furniture, the implementation of minimalist aesthetic, for your JAPANDI space to provide a comfortable and pleasant visual experience. Lamps can be hung lower, and lamps made of rice paper are an established feature in this interior style. Vases and flowerpots are best made of clay POTS or ceramics, while textiles are monochromatic.

In essence, JAPANDI style invites us to find beauty in simplicity without sacrificing richness, and to embrace complexity without overwhelming our senses. It offers a fresh perspective on modern living, reminding us that true harmony lies in the delicate balance between opposites. The JAPANDI style emphasizes a balance between simplicity and richness, and in the domvitus store the Erice Patterned Wool Pillow Cover beautifully embodies this aesthetic.

The soft tones and intricate patterns of this pillow cover complement the natural elements and minimalist style commonly found in JAPANDI decor. It serves not only as a practical home decor item but also as a representation of your pursuit of harmony and balance.
