Furnishings that combine Japanese and Scandinavian influences are often referred to as "Japandi" in recent times and are very popular.

Our home as a place of refuge

This trend could stem from a desire to transform our home into our own sanctuary to rest and recharge. Awareness of our throwaway culture and the need for more sustainability has also increased.

Though culturally very different, Japan and Scandinavia share similar design values ​​that explain why the in-demand style works so well.

The combination of two styles that are similar

Japanese design is known for its orderly, minimal and utilitarian style and there is still a great respect for fine craftsmanship. This also reflects the Japanese love of natural beauty and imperfection, also known as wabi-sabi.

Scandinavians want comfortable, cozy homes that are warm and welcoming. Keyword: Hygge, a feeling of living that inspires Scandinavian fans all over the world. Also, a balance between form and function is at the heart of Scandinavian design.

Soft colors and natural materials

Both interior styles place an emphasis on aesthetics, materials and craftsmanship. They appreciate well-made and durable products in harmony with nature and value a natural, soft color palette.

If you combine these two furnishing styles, a beautiful, harmonious and reduced style is created that corresponds to the philosophy "less is more". It is minimalist and modern, with a touch of luxury that comes from simple designs with deliberate details that enhance the beauty of the materials.

An aesthetic that lasts longer than a season

It is important to recognize that "Japandi" may have become a buzzword, but this style is not just a fleeting trend, but merely a brief description of an aesthetic that may stay.

How to bring this aesthetic into your home

Imagine minimalist spaces that are uncluttered but welcoming - relaxing yet interesting, thanks to accents, textures and earthy colors.

There is no real rule that the pieces have to come from Japan or Scandinavia. What is important is a harmonious balance of natural and soft tones, natural materials and a willingness for minimalism.

Tip: If you don't want to live minimalist, but still don't want to do without the clean look, you should rely on discreet storage boxes.

The chest of drawers made of light wood and natural wicker offers plenty of storage space and thus ensures order. The simple vases in combination with the magnolia print "Kobushi" in the style of Japanese ink painting harmonize with each other thanks to their soft tones and are a great option for subtle decoration in the Japandi style.
