Japandi, a hybrid of Japanese and Scandinavian design styles, emphasizes simplicity, sleek lines, natural light, and pastel colors.
Redfin reports that though they are far away on the map, Japan and Scandinavia have similar tastes in home décor. Japandi designers blend the Scandinavian focus on function over form with the Japanese idea of respecting the beauty of the imperfect. They have an eye for minimalism, greenery, and natural materials such as stone and ceramics.
Japandi is one of the stylistically most versatile blends of ethnic décor styles which have started gaining momentum on the interior design scene in the past few years.
