In the past few years, Karup Design has expressed and translated the brand and products' character and identity through a so-called Japandi style. Our products have always been a reflection of two worlds. Firstly, the minimalistic and functional Japanese style. Secondly, the influence of the light and 'hygge' Scandinavian style. As both of these styles reflect simplicity and minimalism, we merged Japandi with a twist of wabi-sabi for a more personal touch. Wabi-sabi is Japanese aesthetics, which centers on accepting and finding beauty in imperfection. With a fast-moving everyday life, it is essential to have a safe and inspiring space called home. A simple, minimal, functional, and warm Japandi style with a touch of wabi-sabi creates a calming feeling at any home.
HERE ARE A FEW EASY STEPS ON HOW TO STYLE YOUR HOME IN JAPANDI STYLE:
nature-inspired colors are a must (from earthy brown to forest green and ocean blue)
nature-inspired materials as wooden furniture, linen curtains, tatami mats, cotton bed linens, etc.
unclutter your spaces to have more free floor space, give yourself more room to move around, and to have more air to breathe
choose furniture with simple forms, rounded shapes and straight lines
think of functionality in everything you do, organize your spaces to have convenience and comfort
do not get scared from imperfections, handmade ceramics or carpets, imperfectly crafted lamps or any other decorations
be creative, start slow, and create a space that makes you happy, calm, and joyful. Get inspired and create an atmosphere that encourages you daily
