Japandi is a combination of Scandinavian functionality and Japanese rustic minimalism. In recent years, this interior design style that values everything natural has become the favourite of many people. Interior architect Reet Helisabeth Karm (RHK Interiors) has some tips on the materials, shapes and accessories that can be used to achieve this style.
According to interior architect Reet Helisabeth Karm, the lightness and softness of Drift makes it the perfect base for creating a Japandi-style interior. The popularity of the Japandi style is growing, especially because it’s based on the Scandinavian style, which is very popular and loved. It’s very easy to update and refresh an existing Scandinavian space with wood, such as the light Drift lining boards and other smaller details in the Japanese style.
Using a lot of wood is one of the most important features of the Japandi style and combining other wooden details with a natural shape with Drift is easy and exciting. When Drift boards are used to line walls, ceilings or other surfaces, they go well with natural blocks of wood as side tables, soft shapes on furniture, light and airy design products on wooden frames, textured bouclé fabrics and earthy light colours such as natural white and especially beige. Japandi clay vases in different shapes with dried grasses add the finishing touch and create a soft, harmonious and very cosy whole.
It was the authenticity of wood that appealed to the interior architect in the case of Drift. Knots and the soft, earthy and natural colour of the wood go extremely well with the often robust Japandi style, where the wood used is as natural as possible.
The Drift range is available in lightly worn, true-to-life colours to give your surfaces the aged look you want. Luxuriously wide lining boards and chic rustic colours are suitable for indoor use.
