Japandi is a design style that blends Japanese and Scandinavian influences. The result is a clean, minimal look that is both elegant and functional. Japandi furniture is often made of natural materials such as wood and stone, and it often features simple, clean lines. Color schemes are typically muted, with black, white, and gray being the most common. Japandi rooms are designed to be calm and relaxing, with a focus on simplicity and functionality. In recent years, Japandi has become increasingly popular as more people seek out ways to create a calming oasis in their homes. If you're looking for a way to bring a touch of Japandi into your home, start with simple changes like adding a few low-profile pieces of furniture or using muted colors in your decor. You may be surprised at how quickly you fall in love with the look.
