GET THE LOOK: Japandi

GET THE LOOK: Japandi

Like most interior trends, designs pop up and creep into magazine and retail ranges and before you know it, the trend becomes a staple and is embraced by designers and homeowners alike. Here’s how to recreate the Japandi look in your home.

1. KNOW THE LOOK

You may be asking, what exactly is Japandi? Incorporating the style into your home is going to come with questions. Understanding the history behind your style doesn’t only add a story to your home’s design, but also allows you to make better decisions when selecting your decor and furniture. The design is a fusion of Scandinavian and Japanese design principles creating an overall tone which is more eclectic than traditional Japanese interiors but still embraces minimalism.

2. BLEND LIGHT AND DARK WOOD COLOURS

Scandinavian style is known for its light oak textures where Japanese design is known for its dark timber colours, paired with lighter finishes and very minimal accessories. Mixing these tones together gives the style that signature look where the contrast creates statement pieces and draws the eye to the unusual, yet flawless combination.

3. ADD A PERSONAL STATEMENT PIECE

Like any trend, adapting the style to your own look is important. Japanese designers are known for finding beauty in the imperfect, which allows you to play around with different options for statement pieces.

Keep the look minimal and clutter free, and incorporate unique accessories that add serious impact such as a bonsai plant, sculptural accessory or lamp.

4. USE SOFT ACCENT COLOURS

Accent colours are also borrowed from the current Scandinavian trend with soft pinks, greys and pastel greens becoming dominant. These are perfect if you are not one to use bright colours in your home as they add subtle pops of colour. You can add these calm hues in your throw cushions, vases, artwork or even natural elements such as greenery and plants. It all comes back to clean living and simple, timeless ideas that you can dress up or down.
