Even if you’ve never heard the term Japandi, you’ve probably seen the design everywhere. Japandi is an interior design style that mixes modern Japanese minimalist and modern design with Scandinavian simplicity.
Both styles have roots in a minimalist mindset but with functionality always front and center. This style is super comforting, when done right, and feels cozy and effortless even with the minimalist look. The space should bring in the warmth of the Scandinavian hygge lifestyle as well as the ideas of Wabi Sabi.
