Japanese

"If I think Japanese, I immediately think minimalism."

Simple rooms with hardly anything in them at all.

"I think rice paper screens and sleeping and eating on futons and cushions on the floor."

"I love it actually. I think simple clean lines like this are conducive to meditation and contemplation and not only that, but keeping them clean must be a dawdle compared to all the dusting and hovering you have with clutter."

Storage would be crucial for this style as really only one object of beauty should be seen at a time, to be fully appreciated.

Very neutral colours so interest should be created by texture. Rough plaster walls and wood or matting on the floors. Baskets for storage maybe if you canít get it all in cupboards out of sight. Futons for seating and sleeping, loads of cushions and a low table or two and you are probably just about there.
