Japanadi is a popular, emerging trend because of its clean lines, minimalist style, muted earthy tones, and functionality. Fusing the traditional and natural elements of Japanese style with the simplicity and modern flair of Scandinavian design, Japandi is aesthetically pleasing and brings timeless elegance to any space inside the home. Colours featured: Dulux Gnu Tan and Dulux Grey Reflection
Japandi style is created using calming, tranquil, and peaceful colour palettes, but allows the use of contrasting darker hues in a subtle and meaningful way.
Adding a mix of tones can create different moods throughout the room. Use browns and neutrals for the foundation, then add greys and blacks for drama. Complement natural wood or highlight particular areas of the room with muted pinks, blues and greens.
The use of natural, layered, and textured materials is at the core of Japandi design. A popular material used in Japandi is light oak because it provides strength and warmth. Other materials that can accentuate different sections of the room are concrete, limestone, metals, ceramics, and even patterned marble.
Embrace statement furniture. Placement of furniture with both light and dark tones creates contrast, a design element that perfectly embodies the Japandi style.
Pair typically Scandinavian light timber tones with charcoals or blacks that are inspired by the styling of traditional Japanese interiors. Remember that any furniture should be minimalist and useful. Sometimes less is more.
