If you're interested in interior design, there is a great chance you've heard the word "Japandi" pop up on your inspo page. But what hides beneath this interior design style? Minimalism, scandi vibes, natural elements, or maybe all of it? We're here to explore – in this blog post let's take a close-up look at Japandi, the main characteristics of this interior design trend, and find out how you can incorporate wallpaper in a modern Japandi-inspired interior.  


Japandi is a fusion of two seemingly different interior design styles – Japanese and Scandinavian. Both may seem far apart geographically and even as thought, but in reality, has a lot in common. Japanese and Scandinavian interior design styles work well together because both are rooted in minimalism and comfort. Clean lines, muted & neutral colors, a love of natural materials, and an appreciation of craftsmanship unite both design styles. In Japandi, Scandinavian functionality blends with Japanese minimalism creating beautiful, calm & Zen-like interiors.

Hues of earthy neutrals like beige, brown, and greens are dominant colors used in Japandi interiors because it's a style that honors the love of nature. Pairing neutrals with black as the primary accent color is a key that makes Japandi interiors look cozy, jet elegant & sophisticated.

Wood, bamboo, clay, hemp, and other organic materials are widely used in Japandi-style interiors because this interior design style focuses on sustainability in materials choices and furniture selection. In Japan and Scandinavia, there are traditions of craftsmanship and appreciation of things made by hand, and Japandi interiors reflect this philosophy. Choose sustainable, long-lasting pieces that are not for throwaway.

Minimalism is a core element of Japanese and Scandinavian interiors. Japandi interiors focus on decluttering the space to achieve that Zen-like calm & harmony. And this comes hand-in-hand with the sustainability philosophy – don't stock up on decor pieces and furniture. Choose unique and quality decor objects, and keep them minimal & elegant. In the Japandi case – less is more!
