Movements: Japanese Interior Design and the Art of Feng Shui

http://www.minimalisti.com/architecture/interior-design/08/japanese-style-house-interior-design.html

When I think of Japanese design, I think sleek, modern lines. Soft woods, plants galore. Beams of sunlight drifting through open windows, across pine floors with straw mats and low tables. Floor pillows and steaming cups of tea. Lanterns and water features. Peace and tranquility. There’s something inspiring about Japan’s tendency towards serenity — especially in this modern age, when we lead such busy lives. So, I present this issue of Movement’s as a sort of rebellion. A call to reserve our homes for rest and rejuvenation. And with the right touch, any room can be transformed into a zen oasis.

Chinoiserie: Curated

We love mixing and matching styles, finishes, and patterns; it keeps things interesting! Our goal is to help you design your home in a way that feels organic and natural rather than artificial – forced. Jaclyn’s portfolio and the Coveted Home shop are confirmation of our inclination to choose elements that work in harmony with one another rather than ones that mirror each other. One style that is perfect for adding a little interest to a room is chinoiserie. Chinoiserie style (i.e., art and design that reflects Chinese qualities or motifs) has been popular in Western design for centuries, and it is easy to see why! Lacquer, dragons, bold colors, pagodas, and beautiful depictions of flora and fauna – what is not to love about chinoiserie? We’ve pulled together a few fabulous pieces that have a “Chinese-esque”  feel and style.
