When planning on decor and decorations it helps a lot to be mindful about far away cultures and design ideas, especially those from the East. You can consider being different by adopting Japanese decor for your home.
Over the centuries, features of Japanese interior room design have been tastefully and slowly evolving. Preserved graciously, the basics of this design create a significant improvement in processes and materials used, making home improvement real fun.
Colors to look at in a different way:
Black and white is considered as an important color combo of elements in the Japanese interior decoration. The black color used aligns structural geometry and defines form. Neutrals and off whites are colors which take their cue from nature. Your Japanese decorating plan should have an underlying objective of implying orderliness with neutral colors. As far as creating a focal point is concerned, primary colors are used, so that they can stand out alone on an architectural feature or an object. You should be able to resist the urge to apply vivid colors in multiples.
Contrasting finish materials:
A single large slab of quarry stone can be used to surround bamboo hardwood engineered floors. With a shinning lacquered box which is perfectly crafted, you can match cedar wood. Furnishings made of wicker can be topped with cushions that are silky smooth. Contrasts can be balance by having a mat of natural fiber, which is heavily textured. A wall with similar tone and smooth finish can be transformed with a traditional hung accent simply, as an integral part of contrast balancing.
As far as fluidity of display and placement of furniture is concerned prescribed rules are followed. Furniture can be arranged on its perimeter creating traffic patterns that cross the center of the room. A focal point needs to be established with very less obstruction of the physical movement and visual flow about its perimeter. For facilitating a conversation, furniture can be grouped in the center. Avoid clutter and ensure that the focal point is kept cleanly defined.
Balancing opposites is the widely known Buddhist doctrine, so keep thinking yin and yang to achieve balance, order and tranquility with Japanese decor. Striving for simplicity should be the main aim in Japanese decoration. The ingrained culture is sure to give your living or working space a whole new charisma and appeal. Japanese art forms like their home decor dictates are fascinating and creative, give in to your creative side!
