Here's How to Nail the Japandi Interior Design Style Using Amazon Finds
If you stay up to date on the latest interior design trends, you're likely well versed in Scandinavian decor. But you may not be as familiar with the latest iteration of this popular style, which combines its minimalist, nature-inspired aesthetic with the warm, modern look of Japanese interiors. The result? A streamlined yet inviting design trend dubbed Japandi.
The style has been on our radar since late 2020, when Pinterest reportedly saw a 100 percent increase in searches for "Japandi" from October 2019 to September 2020 compared to the previous year. Now, over 90,000 Instagram posts include #japandi and TikTok videos with the same hashtag collectively have more than 9.6 million views.
"I think the style is becoming increasingly more popular because it reaches people who may love and appreciate the modern vibe but don't want their space to feel cold," says Leia T. Ward, founder and principal designer of LTW Design. "I also think people are craving that connection to the outdoors, and the natural elements really speak to that need and desire."
Needless to say, interior designers and novice decor enthusiasts alike are taking note of the trending style, so much so that it's even trickled down to Amazon's selection of home goods. The website recently added a page dedicated to Japandi style home decor and furniture. It includes images of interiors featuring the trending look, descriptions of popular elements found in the style, and, of course, plenty of products you can buy to bring the aesthetic into your home.
While Amazon provides a plethora of furnishings and accessories to choose from, take some advice from Ward before adding anything to your cart. First, she recommends decluttering your space and arranging your remaining pieces in an open floor plan to create "a nice airy flow." When it's time to shop, look for warm neutral colors, natural textures, and live plants. And if you're still not sure where to start, you can consult Amazon's Discover Rooms feature for more inspiration.
