Japanese Zen

There is something quite alluring in Japanese Gardens. A je-ne-sais-quoi that speaks: ZEN attitude

If I had this in my backyard, I think I would be out raking!My OCD inner self is telling me I would totally love this:)

Traditional Japanese houses look good!
Great Entryways. Small spaces well catered for

Curtains OUT the windows are nice too

My absolute favorites are the beautiful screen-doors. I don't know about sound-proofing issues, I'd imagine it can turn out to be cumbersome if you use them in all your rooms. But, they'd be great as doors for walk-in wardrobes, separators for the dining room from the living area or for any privacy need in a loft space.

...Which is your favorite?

I guess it is a way of life, the japanese lifestyle. You get it or you don't.


  1. Wow, beautiful screen-doors. I like the first one. Interesting post.

  2. I do get it, but would never be able to achieve it.

  3. @ Mallinkowa: Glad you like it:)

    @Corine: Same here:( Ahh well!
