Japanese and Scandinavian Aesthetics
There is a rise in Japandi interior design trend – it is a hybrid of Japanese and Scandinavian aesthetics that Etsy shoppers are welcoming into their homes. Both the styles take on minimalism and make use of a few statement pieces rather than filling up the house with different types of decor.
This style combines modern minimalist and warm rustic styles to bring both, tranquility and comfort to any space. Etsy suggests pairing warm shades of wood with contrasting neutral colors to get a fresh look at home.
