A Muji-Inspired Home Centred Around Functionality And Minimalism

Drenched in radiant morning sunlight, the exceptional craftsmanship of this Muji-inspired dwelling is a true testament to the Japanese design philosophy. A main emphasis on functionality, simplicity and a solid-tone colour scheme encapsulates the entirety of this compact home, cladded in a light wood tone from floor to ceiling. Sprinkles of minimal decor pieces highlight a clutter-free environment, thoughtfully designed to create a soothing visual and zen-like experience in addition to warm cove lights. Custom wood joinery surrounding the perimeters of the communal area all the way to the platform bed creates a clean and seamless appearance, serving multiple usage. Paying homage to traditional Japanese style beds, the spotless setting and functional storage spaces are integral to the overall design concept. Taking on a less-is-more approach, the gentle atmosphere of the home exudes the bliss of solitude.

Interior Designer’s Thoughts

Being an avid fan of Japanese design, the homeowner wanted to replicate a Muji-inspired style into her home interior. One of the key highlights in the design brief was to have ample storage space while keeping a clean aesthetic, cladded with a light wood tone as the foundation. Embracing the art of minimalism and practicality, the communal space and master bedroom is designed in such a way to provide storage solutions and fully maximise every inch of the space.  Examples include wood joinery of the bay window seats, dining bench and the platform bed that is integrated with a full length wardrobe. Minimal decor pieces are artfully situated, emphasising on a minimalistic approach. Honouring the Japanese philosophy of simplicity, every element of this interior design seeks to exhibit functionality and blissful serenity.
