6 Japanese-Style Homes That Are Perfect For Muji Fans
If you’ve ever walked into a Muji store and felt a sense of peace and calm wash over you, this article is for you!
In this article, we’ve showcased 6 Japanese-style homes that are perfect for fans of Muji’s simple, clean aesthetic. You want your home to be a safe haven, and a place where you can relax and be at ease. Here’s some inspiration from 6 beautiful homes that manage to do just that:
1. This Living Room Featuring A Floral Wallpaper
Simple doesn’t necessarily have to be boring. This project shows how easy it is to add interest to a space… just add wallpaper! We love how they’ve chosen a larger-than-life floral print in a muted colour – it’s eye-catching, but at the same time, it complements the understated, minimal furniture.
2. This Living Room With Plenty Of Storage Space
Need more storage space? Take advantage of your vertical space by building upwards! This Japanese-inspired living room features a built-in console that extends all the way to the ceiling, giving the owners plenty of room for their belongings.
Pro-tip: Not a huge fan of dusting? Keep the number of open shelves in your console to a minimum, so that you’ll have less to clean.
3. This Living Room With Built-in Seating
How sleek does this living room look? We love the wooden panelling and clean lines, and the fact that they’ve got built-in seating. Add a side table and a stack of books to create a reading nook, or add some beanbags or loose chairs so that you have an area for friends to lounge and chat. The possibilities are endless!
4. This Living Room That’s Heavy On Wood
This project is a great example of how to use a material (wood!) in multiple ways in a small space, without it feeling boring or one-dimensional.
There’s wood on the ceiling-to-floor cabinets, on the floors, and on the storage bench next to the windows. Despite that, the space doesn’t feel bogged down or overwhelmed, because they’ve smartly broken it up using herringbone tiles behind the television.
5. This Stylish Living Room With Wabi-sabi Vibes
As you can see in this project, you don’t necessarily need a ton of wooden furniture or elements to achieve a minimal, Japanese-inspired look in your home.
It’s easy to achieve the same effect by styling – adding a large, woven rug on the floor and a stack of books (imperfectly stacked, of course!) below the console gives this home a charming wabi sabi vibe.
6. This House With Wooden Panelling
Wooden panelling is all the rage these days – there’s no denying how elegant and sleek this design feature is. In this project, the same wood is used across the panelling and the floor, for a sense of continuity that makes the home seem even bigger.
