Japanese Interior / August 8, 2018 / Amaris Bustos.
Japanese culture has been on the fashion edge for years. However, in the last decade decorating your home in the Japanese style has become even more popular. Why? There are perhaps tens of reasons, but we can not discuss the exotism that the far Oriental culture has upon occidental people and over their houses and interiors. Oriental culture and especially Japanese architecture offers many ways to break the monotony of traditional and modern decorations.
Everything in Japan homes is different. Gardens, interior designs, furniture, art, walls, mats, (their famous tea rooms), shades. You’ve got to think on Japanese homes as a whole. Both, indoors architecture and outdoors come together in harmony. I’m sure if someone asks you for topics on Japanese decorations, you will answer Nipon subjects such Feng shui, Tansu, Bamboo, Imari, Bonsai. Since most of these concepts don’t come initially from Japan, occidental people tend to believe that they’d be.
Therefore in the following article, I’ll try to give information from my experience in Japanese homes. Have a bit of knowledge I’d like to share. I’ve heard many times some of my friends talking about the new Japanese furniture, especially shades and Feng-Shui accessories they’ve added to their homes, but wanted to explain what is Japanese and what is not.
