Japanese decor is known not only for its rich history and traditions, not only for its stunning minimalism and a talent to show beauty in simple things but also for how amazing Japanese designers manage to mix modern home decor with nature. Look at these inspiring courtyards!
Traditional Japanese gardens and courtyards mixed with minimalist surroundings look amazingly harmonious and relaxing. Moss, ponds and grass with a bamboo fountain seem a relaxing oasis in the minimalist homes.
I was always surprised how such a piece of nature merges with modern design, and if you too, enjoy the examples below and create your own Japanese-inspired courtyard at home!
A Japanese garden is a peaceful space that doesn’t have any excessive elements, everything is perfectly balanced. Start with moss, which is basics, and combine it with grasses and greenery that you like – don’t plant too many.
You may also add a tree or a couple of trees – rock very thin and small ones, the types that are typical for Japanese gardens. A tree isn’t a must, the more peaceful space you want, the less you need a tree. Blooms aren’t popular for Japanese gardens, so you may skip them or go for a sakura tree if you want.
