In Japan there’s a term used to define the homes that feature a minimalist, minimalist interior décor. It’s called the minimalism of the home.NL. The homes are all designed to have super simple interiors. This style is beautifully reflected throughout the house but, in addition to that, the atmosphere is also very soothing and relaxing. It’s a process that the owners and their children go through. The main idea behind this concept is the fact that the design is meant to relieve stress. To make that happen, the decor is chosen to be simple and it’s also in sync with the environment and the views.
The exterior of the house is also simple. It features concrete walls and neocaficholic tiled roofs. The interior is decorated with mostly neutral colors. The purpose is to create a relaxing, calm and soothing atmosphere to satisfy the need for tranquility. The wooden floors add warmth and texture to the décor and they also make the atmosphere feel cozier.
The living area is a big and open space that also includes the kitchen and dining room. It’s very nice how each area is connected to the other and yet they are separate and delimitated by the glass and glass walls. The wooden floors have a very beautiful finish and they go very well with the white and gray features used in the décor.
The dining area features another very beautiful detail. It’s a double height ceiling and it gives the room a total new look. The walls are white and have a rough, unfinished look. The simple, white dining table can be easily made using a free standing piece of wood. The atmosphere here is very airy and bright, especially with those high ceiling lights.
The double height ceiling in the living room is spectacular. The lighting is soft and delicate and the colors are mostly neutral, with some vibrant accents. The floor is similar to the one used for the ceiling. The ceiling light is almost like a piece of sculpture, a beautiful light fixture designed to create a romantic and warm atmosphere.
