Japandi: What is it, you ask? It’s where Japanese and Scandinavian home decor styles meet, with clean lines, muted colors, natural materials, and minimal decor. Keep reading to learn all about how you can bring Japandi style into your space.
1. Reduce Clutter
If you Google images of Japandi home decor, you’ll be met with uber-clean photos of pretty, natural furniture and simple, modern decor elements. Nowhere in those images are stacks of month-old receipts, old college textbooks, piles of magazines, or cluttered surfaces. The first step in going for the Japandi look is to declutter your home. Need a little help getting started? You can always count on Marie Kondo’s KonMari Method™ to nudge you in the right direction.
2. Go for High-Quality Furniture
Aim for more trustworthy brands, like West Elm, Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn, and others that use better quality materials and construction. And if these are a bit too high up on your budget, Cost Plus World Market often has excellent furniture at an affordable price. When selecting pieces, pick ones with a nice balance of metal, muted fabric colors, and natural wood tones, like this dresser, this coffee table, this dining set, or this sofa – you get the idea!
3. Stick With Clean Lines & Muted Tones
Whether it’s wall art, an area rug, or kitchen island barstools, the Japandi style calls for clean lines and simple features. Pass on those tufted bed frames, the mirrored side tables, or any bold accents. For color, bring the outdoors in with a few living plants (or faux if you’re lacking a green thumb), for a natural feel.
