The stunning beauty of the Japanese interior home is partially due to its clean, neat appearance. While Western homes tend to be filled with furniture design, textiles, and ornate decoration, Japanese home seems almost empty in comparison. Much of the beauty of Japanese interior origin comes from it's timber frame carpentry and the natural materials used in construction. Japanese interior design, then, is to "add" additional elements in the room. Instead, the goal is to minimize distractions and allow the smooth beauty of the building itself, to shine.
