Hygge is home for Vanessa. If you're wondering how she likes to keep her house, think tidy and uncluttered. She even has a personal Pinterest board featuring only white colored homes, appealing to her minimal design aesthetic.

From simple organization hacks to coming up with cleaning schedules, there’s always plenty to do to make our homes feel tidy, tranquil and inviting. This week, we take inspiration from‘s render of the week – a zen-filled living space that will make you fall in love with the Japanese way of living. Let’s take a closer look into this living room.

Keeping It Simple with Low-Height Furniture

The Japanese art of shibui, or austerity, emphasizes the beauty of simplicity, and that includes furniture!

Featuring low-height furniture such as coffee tables and floor cushions, this living space stays loyal to the traditions of the Muromachi period when tatami flooring was first popularized. Aside from giving off a minimal aesthetic, the use of low-height furniture allows for an easy tidy up, and lets you easily turn the room into a bedroom or dining area with a few adjustments. Complemented with wooden walls and flooring, this zen Japanese-style living space creates a warm and inviting look perfect for meditating or spending quiet afternoons with the family.
