Japandi - Scandinavian and Japanese Fusion In Your Home

Updated: Aug 24



Interior trend that works like a perfect marriage between simplicity and nature with the common interest of minimalism.



Could this be the winning fusion when it comes to mixing two styles? Minimalist functional design with a sprinkle of stylish decor pieces rather than abundance of decor. Bringing the best from two different sides of the globe - Scandinavia and Japan, to one perfect combo called Japandi or Scandi-Japanese style. First time I came across Japandi I thought of course, these are two designs speak to each other on so many levels. Scandinavian style brings simplicity through the lines of architecture and cosy uncluttered decor, whilst the Japanese style is all about calming, elegant minimalism. These two are just meant to be together.


Example of Japandi Infusion: simple organic shapes, natural materials, neutral colours.

Characteristics of Japandi Style - Colours like pearl grey, sky blue, light pink and white, mixed with stylish statement furniture made of wood with metal details. Japandi is heavily focused on simplicity, creating a peaceful and warm environment with a minimalist layout.



How to Integrate Japandi Style in Your Home


1) Walls - choose neutral colours which better reflect daylight through space.

2) Furniture

Choose neutral fabrics like beige, off white or muted grey, natural wood tones and simple shapes. Here are a few beautiful pieces that would perfectly fit in Japandi style:

If you already have a piece of furniture in perfect shape and all it needs is a colour uplift to match the Japandi aesthetic; grab a paint brush and pick your neutral paint colour:

You can find them on Etsy: 1) Corfu White 2) Neutral 3) Gris 4) White Cliff


3) Flooring

Nothing speaks Japandi more than wooden floors. Usually, light tones are a great way to open up space.


4) Decor

Long elegant branches sprinkled with buds, statement art pieces with simple shapes and contrasting colours, cushions with Japanese oriented prints or Scandinavian minimal look:

Japandi interior style with all its characteristics deserves to be an evergreen within the designs with its simple yet stylish and not overpowering decor as well as neutral calming colour palette.
