The common point of Japanese-Nordic: Japanese-Nordic home decoration styles are all minimalist, and the home is mainly functional.
Differences between Japanese and Nordic styles: the concept of minimalism is very different. Nordic minimalism lies in the simplification of product function and shape, so it can be seen in the Nordic home decoration that all furniture shapes are very simple but have a sense of design. .
The Japanese minimalism is the minimalism of the way of life, pays attention to “break up”, clean up the unnecessary things, and make people organized.
Therefore, in the Japanese decoration, storage has become the most important thing. In order to make the home look neat and clean, customization has become the main decoration point of the Japanese style, so there are more decoration logs.
When it comes to combining Japanese and Nordic, it depends on whether you focus on function or concept of life. If you have your own special needs, you can also match it yourself~
01——Focus on the concept of life: “Nordic” hard clothing + “Japanese” soft clothing
Generally speaking, there are obvious differences between the “Nordic” and “Japanese” in the hard-covered parts. The color of the Nordic decorations is colder, and the floor is more white, but it is really difficult to clean at home, so it can be used as a gray floor.
If you don’t want to be so cold, you can combine it with Japanese furniture. The wood-colored furniture and light-colored fabrics will neutralize the deserted atmosphere in the white home decoration. The hard-covered part uses a more “Nordic”, simple cement self-leveling and white sliding grid doors, plus a large white wall, the whole house is deserted.
At this time, log furniture is needed to neutralize this situation. Large pieces of furniture and large areas use “Japanese” log furniture, and small areas such as painting vases and high-back chairs use European elements. Makes the room blend into another unique style.
Nordic hard decoration and “Japanese” furniture and characteristics can make northern Europe more warm and “Japanese” more colorful, which is a good choice.
02 – Focus on function: “Japanese” hardwear + “Nordic” softwear
The following points should be paid attention to in “Japanese” hard clothing:
- Wood-colored floor
- Do not have a ceiling
- Do not paint any color of white walls.
When the “Japanese” hard decoration is done, you can add Nordic-style furniture for a long time. The “Nordic” furniture is mainly white, and most of the materials are board and fabric, iron art, and decorations (pillows, paintings, carpets, etc.) The colors are richer.
The general pure “Japanese” will not hang pictures on the wall, and occasionally some ukiyo-e style or elegant floral wallpaper will be hung on the wall. So when you hang a photo wall like the one below, the Nordic atmosphere is immediately highlighted.
The hard furnishings below are all “Japanese”, but the soft furnishings are filled with more Nordic elements, rich-colored carpets and blankets, and photo walls of different styles, which instantly enrich the content.
03 – Warm and tidy, with “Japanese” decoration and furniture, and “Nordic” for lamps and accessories.
It is inevitable to use “Japanese” for both hardware and furniture, and it is even a little too noisy, so you can use some “Nordic” painting lamps and other small pieces to neutralize the atmosphere, but the overall is still very warm.
04 – Calm and lively, both hard and soft outfits are in Nordic style, and small accessories are in Japanese style.
A typical design element of Japanese style, it adds a touch of warmth to the entire cool Scandinavian style home. If you really don’t know how to match it, buy a small coffee table without a wooden head. You can use hanging paintings and chandeliers to express the mix of Nordic and Japanese styles.
