Adding Japanese Zen elements to your home

Adding Japanese Zen elements to your home

Japanese architecture and interior design are richly steeped in the Zen tradition. The Zen way of life advocates simplicity, nature, and peace. Adding a Japanese touch to your home can truly create a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle. 

Elements of wood and bamboo

It is not uncommon to see wood being used for every part of the Japanese home. Consider incorporating wood and bamboo as part of your feature wall, doors, door or window frames.

Japanese sliding doors

Japanese screens or Shoji are an essential element of a Japanese home. These screens allow natural light to pass through and it is a great idea to replace a wall or partition with one of these.
