A FUSION HAVEN JUST JAPANDI
Scandinavian simplicity meets earthy, zen like japanese aesthetics
Simplicity is at the core and crux of this marriage of two minimalistic styles. The twist happens when the Japanese wabi-sabi search for beauty in imperfections and rustic elegance meets Scandinavian serenity.
Colour at play
Japanese styles are inspired by and stay close to nature. Earthy tones are the natural choice. Scandinavian design is known for its judicious use of white and vanilla tones.
Japandi takes the best of both worlds to create a magical yet subtle contrast, playing with rustic accents against a neutral canvas, bringing together the bold and the beautiful. Contrast is crucial. Bright and light are offset by the warm and earthy. Pinks and pastels come together with warm, vibrant hues and tones. Result is important in mad race & pace of the times.
Clean and green
While both styles rely on nature for inspiration, Japandi, the hybrid offspring takes on bold simplicity. One bold plant with elegant form and structure, set against a serene low key ambience would possibly convey Nordic chic and Zen-like transcendence.
Getting down to earth
Japandi furniture stays low and grounded. It has the clean lines that are characteristic of both Scandinavian and Japanese styles.
Furniture have clean lines and are known for their functionality.
The magic happens when the light wood tones of Scandinavia strike a subtle contrast with the dark tones of Japanese furniture while functionality and elegance, key to both parent-styles are retained, there is great scope to experiment with interesting combinations and contrasts.
Keeping it simple all the way
With both styles focused on simplicity, obviously, less is more. Fewer decorative objects adorn the Japandi space. Here again, the hybrid strengths bring cheer - soft, comfortable rugs and carpets of the colder clime meet functional elegance of trays, bowls, vases and artistry of the east.
