A wonderful introduction to the richness of Japanese culture, providing insights into the philosophic and aesthetic principles that underlie Japanese style. It is also a 'how to' book, with hundreds of useful ideas for integrating the simple elegance of Japanese design into your lifestyle.
This book shows how to use Japanese fabrics, kimono, chests, etc, to give a Japanese style to your Western interior without having to remodel. It does show some spaces that were built specifically for the Japanese look, but most of the book is more about decorating your existing space.
Beautifully photographs and revealing commentary...
