Do you long for more simplicity in your life? Is your current home decor too “busy” or mismatched to make you feel relaxed? Maybe it’s time to switch your color scheme into neutral and look for the organic fabrics and colors that can only be found in Asian decor.
Decorating with Japanese style furniture can do a lot to relieve stress and turn your home into an oasis of calm. In fact, many interior designers use Japanese inspired furniture in hotel lobbies, restaurants and office spaces because it instills a sense of calm that is conducive to great communication.
Contemporary Japanese furniture opens up endless possibilities for any living space. For example, with Japanese bedroom furniture, a low profile Tatami platform bed and matching furniture opens ups the space in the room and makes it more relaxing.
Japanese style furniture can also add a modern yet functional look to your living room, dining room and meditation space. If you are thinking about redecorating with Japanese style furniture, you may want to consider new flooring as well.
Tatami mats and exotic hardwood flooring are an excellent place to start. Then build from there with some Japanese tea tables, Asian silk covered cushions, Shoji paper window blinds and Shoji screens.
Add a decorators’ touch of fine Asian artwork such as coordinating bamboo brush paintings or Sumi ink drawings. And for softer lighting, consider adding some slate wall sconces and floor lamps with rice paper shades.
