Japandi style in the interior might not be yet well-known, but 2021 is definitely the year that started the trend. So, what is Japandi style and what makes it so special and so desirable nowadays? Let’s figure it out.
As it is written in the title of this post, the style is a mix of Scandinavian Hygge and Japanese minimalism. For those who don’t know, Hygge is not a style, but a concept, or even a lifestyle. Hygge is a word that describes the feeling when you are alone or with friends, indoors or outdoors, and you acknowledge the coziness of the environment around you, which makes you calm, stress-free and happy.
The coziness of the Hygge concept you can see in the Scandinavian style of interior design.
Normally, it combines natural materials, like wood and rocks, with multi-functional furniture and decor items.
Now, Japanese minimalism, on the other hand, serves as a perfect addition to the Hygge concept, because coziness is all about decluttered spaces, warm tones and no flashy colours. Japanese minimalism multiplies the coziness of the Scandinavian style and declutters the space.
Combining these two, we get Japandi style, a peaceful environment at home, which uses muted colours, comfortable and minimal furniture and home decor made of natural material, like woven baskets, handcrafted ceramic vases, paper lanterns, wooden lamps etc.
Adding wooden branches and pinecones from the forest and using sand and stones from the beach in the interior is also a great part of this style.
Layers of texture (pillows, rugs, throw blankets) with neutral colours are the perfect way to style your room in Japandi style. Don’t forget to add simple furniture with clean lines, handmade art and rustic decor items, and your design will meet the style’s standards.
