3 tips for a zen interior




Have you always had a passion for oriental influences and accents? And would you very much like to add some Japanese touches to your home? What a wonderful idea! Japanese homes are open, peaceful and serene – completely zen, if you will. And zen interiors are always nice coming home to after a long and tiring day at work.

Plop down on the sofa with a cup of tea and let go of all your worries!



Abstract and minimalistic


The characteristics of a zen interior? Space and a minimum of furniture and accessories. Japanese design is in fact synonymous with simplicity – so just say no to garish pieces! Instead go for a nice minimalist approach. Clean lines, geometric shapes and neutral colors go a long way toward a zen interior. The furnishings are mostly of dark wood or bamboo beams and exude 100 percent simplicity and tranquility.


A zen interior? Of course!


Nature and natural elements go hand in hand with a Japanese zen interior. Opt for a bonsai tree or a traditional plant to give your home a peaceful look. Additionally you could also use bamboo wood throughout your home. Bamboo is perfect for partitions, window decorations and lighting, just check out these ANJO and HINO lanterns:


Wood, silk, wool and cotton are commonly used in Japanese interiors. What do you think of these inviting pillows and blankets?


Blue and porcelain


Japanese design is based on sober and neutral colors. White, beige and gray provide the right atmosphere in your zen interior. Looking for a suitable accent color for your home? Then you should definitely consider blue. This Japanese favorite can be brought into your interior in a variety of ways.

The porcelain bowls and dessert plates of the CHIYO series are a dream for sure. And these pieces of the EDGE series will make you feel zen, too:
