You've heard of Scandi design, you've probably even heard of Hygee. But have you heard of Japandi ? If not, then you're in for a treat and if you have then you're allowed to feel smug! Without a doubt Japandi is an exciting hybrid design trend. It combines the modern rustic feel of Scandi design with the understated elegance of Japanese style. The two compliment each other beautifully and can help you create a minimalist bedroom with lots of interest. So if you'd like to bring Japandi into the bedroom then you're in the right place. Here, we explore just how you can create a Japandi inspired bedroom.
As already mentioned, Japandi is a blend of Scandi and Japanese design. Effectively this enables you to get the best of both worlds. It could be said that Japandi is the perfect choice for the procrastinators! These two styles stem from countries that are across for the globe from each other. However, it easy to see why they make the perfect style marriage. This is due to the fact that at the core of both these styles is minimalism.
However, this perfect relationship is made interesting because of the different qualities that each style brings. Whilst Japanese style can feel overly polished, the rustic qualities of Scandi style can help warm up an interior. Indeed, Scandi style focuses heavily on neutral palettes. This can make a room feel a little on the bland side. The richness of colours associated with Japanese style can help add interest and drama.
If you want to use this blended style in the bedroom then the emphasis needs to be on minimalism. Therefore you need to focus on creating a clutter free environment. If you like lots of nik nacks then this isn't the style for you! Furthermore, your choice of furnishings should be largely made of natural materials. Indeed this interior style relies heavily on celebrating the power of nature.
When it comes to selecting a bed, our wooden beds make an excellent choice. However, remember that your bed should be the embodiment of simplicity. Indeed, the bed's beauty should come from the natural beauty of the wood. The Ashton bed would be a perfect example of this.
However, if you're trying to create a clutter free environment then a wooden Ottoman bed might be right up your street. These fantastic beds are great for keeping your space clear by providing the maximum amount of storage space. In fact, these beds can store up to four times the amount as a standard four drawer divan!
As regards colours for this style of bedroom then it is all about contrasts. Often a Japandi style bedroom would start with a dark neutral hue on the bedroom walls. For example, you could use a dark saturated green, a moody navy blue or a steely dark grey. If you feel that painting all four walls this dark is too much then you could opt for a darker feature wall. These darker shades offer a great back drop for lighter shades of wooden furniture. Oak furniture works particularly well in this scheme.
When it comes to accessorising then less is more. A few well places items of beauty and modernity is key here. Bedding should be unfussy and simple. A crisp white duvet set would be perfect here. Furthermore, a large architectural plant would be particularly suited to this kind of bedroom. This can help to incorporate the beauty of the great outdoors.
