Have you ever dreamed of living in a Japanese inspired house? I do! I only saw some Japanese inspired designs on TV and photos and I just get fascinated with how they could put up all the interior designs in one great work of art using woods in various forms. Walls are often thin and movable. I love their idea of having the rooms divided according to their needs using screens or movable paper walls.
Usually, their living rooms and dining rooms are adorned with lovely bonsais and specially crafted ikebana. Ikebana is a kind of Japanese floral arrangement which is more of a creative expression rather than a simple work of art where nature and humanity are put together. Having this around the house as part of the interior decorations made the entire house looks more pleasant and sophisticated conveying Japanese historical and cultural traditions.
Most Japanese inspired houses has given more emphasis on the flooring. Made of plain woods, floors are usually covered with tatami mats.
Japanese architecture is simply one of the most captivating, innovative and interesting designs that I've seen and their unique style never disappoints those who are seeking for modern, stylish and yet with a touch of traditional architecture.
