Love all things Japanese? Check out how these 10 homeowners and designers transformed their homes into Japanese dwellings — whether it’s a clean Muji-inspired look, a tatami room, or a full-on traditional ryokan.
This three-bedroom condo combines Japanese influences, a gentle colour palette inspired by one of Italy’s legendary printmakers, and a furniture collection from Scandinavian brands to create a cosy home with plenty of soul.
After living with a dark colour palette for many years, the homeowners of this three-storey cluster terrace home at Yishun tasked their nephew, Mikael Teh of Monocot Studio, with giving their home a much-needed revamp. The new look is a bright and airy space influenced by the streamlined forms and light hues of Japanese design.
Home for this couple in their early 30s, is a Japanese-style 1,000sqf four-room HDB BTO in Whampoa. With the help of their interior designer from Studio Super Safari, they wanted to achieve the Japanese zen garden-inspired look, while having a cosy study area and sufficient wardrobe spaces in their home.
The design team at Pencil Office was inspired by the use of simple wooden screens, commonly seen in traditional Japanese dwellings, to create a look that’s heavily focused on the light-coloured wood material. The result is a home that epitomises the Japanese Minimalist look, with a modern twist.
