What does japandi mean?

Japan­di style is a sym­bio­sis of two trends in inte­ri­or design: Scan­di­na­vian style and Japan­ese inte­ri­or tra­di­tions (japan­di = japan + scan­di). The result is a fair­ly har­mo­nious hybrid.

The main features of the interior in the style of japandi

1. Functionality

Design in such inte­ri­ors is incred­i­bly impor­tant, but in no case does it pre­vail over the func­tion­al com­po­nent.

4. Organized storage

The pedantry of the Japan­ese and the love of the Scan­di­na­vians with putting every­thing on shelves and box­es merged togeth­er — and made order­ly, ver­i­fied to the small­est detail, neat stor­age one of the impor­tant fea­tures of the Japan­di style fur­nish­ings.

It is quite pre­dictable that all kinds of bas­kets, box­es, con­tain­ers, orga­niz­ers help orga­nize stor­age in such inte­ri­ors.

8. Slight imperfection

The hooli­gan touch, so loved by the Scan­di­na­vians, in Japan­di inte­ri­ors man­i­fest­ed itself in the form of slight imper­fec­tions in dec­o­ra­tion, fur­ni­ture or acces­sories. It can be cement (even uneven) walls or tex­tured plas­ter with the effect of care­less appli­ca­tion, hand­made dish­es with charm­ing flaws, imper­fect­ly planed wood­en fur­ni­ture and much more.

What to Avoid

But it is bet­ter to beware of the fol­low­ing design tricks when dec­o­rat­ing a space in Japan­di style:

  • bright col­ors;
  • obvi­ous accents;
  • active orna­ments and pat­terns;
  • col­or­ful tex­tiles;

  • frankly unnat­ur­al mate­ri­als of fur­ni­ture, dec­o­ra­tion, acces­sories;
  • a lot of non-func­tion­al decor;
  • intri­cate draperies on the win­dows;
  • clut­ter, visu­al noise.
