The Japanese culture is recognized for its emphasis on efficiency, which manifests itself in various ways. One of the most prominent themes explored in these photographs is the placement of a traditional Japanese home. Despite its small size, this mostly wood-paneled home manages to fit every vital component of a home without wasting any room. The house is undeniably functional and immensely peaceful, from concealed tables to tucked-away kitchens.
Plants for the home
Are you one of those persons who has amassed a large number of indoor plants, particularly at the start of lockdown? Well, you’re in luck since many modern Japanese house design is all about this! Bonsai trees, ferns, and even ikebana-style flower arrangements are all good choices. Just make sure all that flora doesn’t jeopardize your open space layout!
These natural components would infuse your area with a sense of calm. After all, Japanese culture is based on appreciation and respect for the environment. What better way to maintain a connection to the wide outdoors than to bring it inside?
The simple yet sensuous and highly textured environment of AMOMA home design is the brainchild of Wonderwall, a famous Tokyo-based interior design studio, and Liaigre, manufacturers of haute couture interior furnishings.
Screens, blinds, and dividers
In natural light, thick curtains are a no-no in Japanese home design! Instead, use blinds that don’t block out the light and allow you to see outside.
Room separators, generally bamboo screens and shoji, are seen in many traditional Japanese homes.
These screens and separators can be found in places like Muji, and some of them even have Japanese-inspired designs! Better still, get a collapsible kind so you can conveniently store it when you’re not using it.
