Japandi trend on a rise with minimalist style wallhangings
It’s also important to know what trends are on the rise, and what interior design is being influenced by. Concepts such as the Japandi style is becoming more sought after, a popular hybrid trend that takes the modern Scandinavian design mixed with the classic Japanese aesthetic, combining traditional and contemporary to capture the best of both worlds and produces Japandi style wallhangings minimalist style.
It pulls off an interior look of seeming minimal, warm, and comforting, touching on wabi-sabi enthused imperfection – it’s quite grounded, focusing on raw functionality rather than decorative aspects, although within this, you can still appreciate this trendy style. You may have come across Japandi many times without knowing its name, though the trend has been growing for some time now.
The Japandi style allows us to embrace imperfections in everyday life, fitting into the ideas behind my own interior design: I hope my tapestries and objects are viewed as part of an environment which can comfort and nurture you, bringing tranquillity to your home. Whilst they have imperfections themselves, they bear no judgement and accept who you are – a perfect metaphor for being a loving, sheltering hug in your sacred, special place. You can find beauty in imperfection, and this is one of the main messages to be taken from both nature and the Japandi style of design.
As the years go by, I believe we will take more and more inspiration from nature and the environment surrounding us. Although this may sound a little cliché, there’s certainly some wisdom to be learnt from this, especially as nature doesn’t have a single layer, but many layers…
Anyone can appreciate the absolute beauty that nature has to offer, with tranquillity and softness embracing it from the grass to the bushes to the trees, to every other wonder on our planet. The principle of appreciating this beauty and softness can be directly applied to interior design and architecture.
You may be confused by this, but if you think about it, interior design has many layers, much like nature does. All the natural materials are brought together to form a piece of art that can be appreciated by all – adding subtle textures that adds character to a piece of design is definitely on the rise today, even giving the design a kind of movement and flow. Art in terms of interior design and architecture can be brought alive just like nature by its rich portrayal of beauty and detail – or minimalism, in the Japandi style’s case.
Aside from a design’s appearance, it’s becoming more and more important that we experience our living environment by touch, fully immersing ourselves into the piece of art. In fact, we may subconsciously start surrounding ourselves with tactile pieces which calm and ground us, giving us a stronger connection to nature – something that many people seek increasingly these days. It’s become common knowledge that nature is there to be preserved, as what we give to it can be given back to us in the form of calmness. Through different trends, we can learn to search for beauty in imperfections, and this can be seen in interior design as well as the environment.
