- DescriptionLavishly illustrated with striking full-colour photos and full of practical information, Japan Home is the perfect source of inspiration for anyone eager to give their home a special Japanese flair. Filled with light and simplicity and existing in close harmony with the natural world, Japanese interior design has long been rewned for its spare beauty, utility, and grace. Today more and more people outside of Japan have come to appreciate its tranquil allure, and are incorporating uniquely Japanese features in their homes. Featuring a glossary of Japanese terms, a bibliography, and shopping resources, Japan Home explores: finding room for special spaces for tea ceremonies, meditation, or just relaxing; how to bring nature and a feeling of space into a room by adding an opening to the outside; and unique elements for bathrooms, including ways to experience the luxury an ofuro, or soaking tub, in your own home. It also looks at providing light and privacy with shoji paper doors and sudare blinds. It includes artwork and furnishing ideas that can change the look of your home, from byobu folding screens to beautiful tansu wooden chests. It offers ways to make the most of your yard or garden with Japanese style. Whether you're remodelling your house, redesigning your apartment, or just looking for a book of design ideas, Japan Home is a beautiful and indispensable resource.
