" In the city fields
Strangers are like friends "
~ Kobyasha Issa
One of the biggest advantages to Asian inspired design today is versatility. Creative types express their taste and originality in their home environments, and often “set the stage” for a new season by transforming their living spaces to greet each season throughout the year. Japanese minimalist design provides the ideal blank palette. Choose the right pieces, and you can completely transform the room with art, plants, soft furnishings, and accessories.
For a breezy, cool summer look, stick to cushions and accessories in soothing, neutral shades. Add cozy notes to a room in autumn by incorporating eclectic retro pieces that mimic the colors of falling leaves. To brighten the feel of a room in the midst of a chilly winter, add bold splashes of color. And celebrate the return of spring with lively spring colors and an abundance of brand-new house plants.
Although Japanese Minimalist design generally eschews gaudy decorative pieces, its “tabula rasa” nature lends itself beautifully to the addition of holiday themed accessories. Add warm hanging lighting, scented candles, and a living tree during the winter solstice season and transform your rooms into inviting spaces to entertain guests.
