This month, let’s talk about Japandi!
Japandi has proved to be an interior style that symbolises a perfect marriage between simplicity and nature. All this, while enhancing functionality! No wonder it has made it to the Design trends to follow in 2021. A symbiosis of Japanese calm and Scandinavian clarity, Japandi is a trend you would love to embrace.
What is Japandi?
Japandi brings the best from two different sides of the globe – Scandinavia and Japan, to one calming fusion called Japandi or Scandi-Japanese style. The mélange of contrasting colours like pearl grey, sky blue, natural wood in dark and light shade, a hint of black, pale pink, and white are what make Japandi more earthy.
What makes it different?
Clean. Decluttered. Functional.
It is heavily focused on simplicity, creating a peaceful and warm environment with a minimalist layout. Scandinavian brings clarity through the lines of architecture and cosy, uncluttered décor, whilst the Japanese style is all about calming, elegant minimalism creating the perfect blend of minimal + functional.
Metal, slate, glass, and more, Schneider Electric switches and products embody the soul of Japandi. Crafted with the latest aesthetic trends in mind.
Isn’t minimalist just another fad?
The clarity of Scandinavian and the calming, elegant minimalism of Japanese – just speak to each other at so many levels. Minimalist functional design with a sprinkle of stylish decor pieces rather than an abundance of décor, is a trend all designers love to include in their interior designs.
Blending with greenery, your outdoors and indoors, Schneider Electric switches and products don’t stand out and help let your home be the perfect amount of minimal and functional.
Anyone can Japandi!
Here are 3 simple ways to infuse your space with the Japandi vibes, to give you that clean, minimal and decluttered style of that interior design inspiration pin you always wanted.
- Embrace Imperfection – When many imperfections come together, they create an aesthetic of their own!
- Blend Indoors & Outdoors – Japandi interiors are about keeping the flow seamless- between objects of a home, the indoors and the outdoors, the blend of colours etc.
- Elegant Use of Greenery – While minimalism in decor is of course a key, an overdose of greenery can skew the balance too!
For sheer elegance, nothing comes close to the luxurious look and feel of D life. While the sleek, square design includes a variety of cover frames, it goes without saying that a Japandi home would look best with these materials.
Refuse, Dispose, Separate
Japandi celebrates the concept of ‘Danshari’ meaning to ‘refuse’, ‘dispose’, and ‘separate’ items that weigh you down or create negative energy in a home. By keeping things that truly serve a purpose or have a meaning to you, it adds to the value of a space in a home. As customers now want their homes to be – Irresistibly beautiful, simple & future-proof. We’ve taken the highly successful New Unica design and given it a remarkable makeover to merge seamlessly with this style.
