1. Earthy Neutral Base
Japandi style is all about creating a sense of peace and calm in your home, with that being said, when it comes to choosing colors in this trend, it is recommended to start by choosing a neutral color palette—from furniture to wall color. This doesn’t mean you have to go for all lighter colors. You can switch it up with darker earth tones on walls or upholstery as a way to add more visual warmth to your space.
Once you have your wall colors, you can then move onto color layering with furniture and décor. Layering in multiple shades of one color will help create depth and contrast in a neutral space. Accenting with natural wood and stones will also dramatize this effect.

2. Add Natural Wood Tones & Pieces
Tones from natural woods help to bring warmth into a Japandi styled space. When it comes to choosing the proper furniture, along with accents & décor, choose woods that are warm or light wood toned. You can even decide to mix between wood tones adding contrasting depth into your space.

4. Aim for Lower Furniture
When furnishing your Japandi Style space, you will want to go with more lower plush furniture in order to create the illusion of a larger and airier space. Choosing beds, sofas, chairs that sit low to the ground and have simple clean lines will create that minimalist feel.

5. De-Clutter Your Space
In Japandi style, there is no clutter. Make sure to organize your belongings and get rid of any non-essential décor items to create the most minimal décor you can. There is no room for hoarding in Japandi style. This doesn't mean to create a bare space, but instead decorate with furnishings that add texture and dimension to your space such as teak tables and a chamcha wooden chair.
