Japanese modernist designs are extremely popular nowadays because of its simplicity and minimalism. This style has numerous lovers and supporters. In this article, we will introduce this amazing style to you so you can apply some tips to your interior design! Let’s start this small trip to Japan!
In a nutshell, Japanese modernism is guided by the concepts of simplicity, honesty, and purity. Japanese people respect and maintain their traditions like any other nation does not. That is why Japanese modernist designs are a combination of modern taste with respect to their traditions. Through their interior designs, the overall cultural movement can be better understood.
Let’s have a look at some beautiful interiors. Did you notice on the photos the main difference between traditional interiors? It’s the absence of unnecessary inside walls. This way space opens up and organic flow is created between the building’s interior and exterior. Fun fact: the bedrooms usually have slide doors so that at the same time privacy and space would be present.
Wood is the most usable material for Japanese modernist designs. It looks organic and extremely close to the natural vibe. Also, glass is widely used, for example as a rail for the stairs. It allows natural light to travel through space, while big panoramic windows allow that light to come inside in the first place.
If we discuss color palette in Japanese modernist designs, it is common to use the most neutral colors, which are the closest to nature. For instance, brown, as wood, or green, as plants. Neutral colors as white, grey, and beige are also favorable. However, for a child’s room norms can be avoided! Why not add some bright colors?
