A Book Cafe Home in Japan by Eight Design

Another modern Japanese home to share.

This is a 90sqm apartment in Okazaki, designed by Eight Design. With plenty of natural light pouring in, wall full of bookshelves and a large green leafy trees in the living room, the apartment feels just like a book cafe and that you won’t want to leave.

Do you like the clean, tranquil and uncluttered Japanese aesthetic? I found this article in Freshome – 10 Ways to Add Japanese Style to Your Interior Design that sums up pretty well :)

Muji Style Home 無印良品 (Part 1/2)

Muji (Mujirushi Ryohin) 無印良品, is certainly no stranger to us. It is the “no-brand” brand that strives to deliver simple, functional and quality products to end-users. Its design style is distinguishably minimalistic. When put together, all work so well to create a stress-free space that exudes the understated Japanese aesthetic.

I have been wanted to do a post on interiors decorated with Muji furniture and household items, and finally decided on these 2 spaces to share with you.

The first one is a Muji showroom in Taiwan, result of collaboration with新家華建築團隊.

Muji Style Home 無印良品 (Part 2/2)

The 2nd apartment was a project done by Lee’s Design文儀設計.

It was a 50-year old house, refurbished in the Muji style as requested by the owner. There was no large built-in cabinetry, letting the loose furniture from Muji to take the centre stage of the apartment. The neutral colour palette is soothing, and everything is just so simple and beautiful.
