Below, we’ve curated an amazing selection of Japanese wallpaper designs and decor pieces to bring you lots of easy ideas for creating some beautiful small spaces you’ll love to admire.

1

Zen corner

Take a look around your home, and find a room corner that’s currently going to waste. It’s easy to turn this small space into a relaxing reading nook or an everyday escape with a few simple decor pieces.  

 

We’ve created one here, with a Japanese-style sideboard, comfortable floor cushion, and one of our zen garden-inspired murals, ‘Satori Sage‘.

Traditional beauty

Giving a nod to vintage Japanese style with your bedroom decor is a breeze. Choose a simple wooden bed frame and neutral bedding to keep things looking minimal and clean (Marie Kondo would be proud).

 

The eye-catching feature of this room is the ‘Azaleas‘ wall mural as the backdrop. It’s a piece of old Japanese photography that was coloured in soft blue and cream tones using a traditional technique.

Down to earth

Low furniture is commonplace in Japanese culture. Tables with short legs and cushions to sit down on can give you a new perspective of your space and make your home feel more expansive by adding a new small area to sit and relax.

 

We’ve put together this low-down reading and tea break space and turned it into an even more Japanese-inspired look with a beautiful cranes wall mural, originally painted by Kamisaka Sekka.

Calligraphy-core

Who doesn’t love the satisfying feeling of watching calligraphy ink being painted onto paper with soft, sweeping brush strokes?

 

We created a small collection of hand-painted wall murals inspired by Japanese calligraphy (known as ‘shodo’), and the black ‘Shuji‘ one makes a bold, artistic impact behind a bed headboard. 

5

Ancient art

This sitting area inspiration goes all-out with its ‘Japandi’ aesthetic. Modern Japanese decor has become a timeless trend – with stylish pieces like this woven rattan chair. 

 

The wallpaper in the background sets the scene. It’s made to resemble traditional Japanese panels – particularly the red cherry blossoms, which are traditional in ancient oriental art.

Sakura season

Bring the outdoors into your interiors – the Japanese wallpaper way. A pink cherry blossom mural like this one will frame a small space, so you can sit and sip some tea underneath the famous blossom trees of Japan. 

 

Here, we’ve created a simple sitting and meditation area in a room by simply pairing the mural with a bench, cushion, and a decorative plant. It’s so easy to do in any room where you have some extra space. 

7

Fuji feature wall

Mt. Fuji is one of the most iconic views in Japan. If you’re styling a room with Japanese culture and aesthetics in mind, a nod to the famous mountain is pretty much a must. 

 

We’ve turned this colourful Kamisaka art piece into a wall mural, so you can place it anywhere in your home. Here, it looks great as a headboard backdrop.

Japandi harmony

‘Japandi’ is a mix of Japanese and Scandinavian decor styles that’s grown and grown in popularity. It’s simple to see why everyone adores this mashup – it’s a combination of two relaxing, minimal, and welcoming styles that are easy to decorate with. 

 

Here, we’ve created a perfect pairing of neutral Scandi bedroom decor with a dusty pink wall mural named ‘Zen’, which is inspired by Japanese zen gardens. Give Japandi a try in one of your rooms, too. You’ll be pleasantly surprised!

Make waves

‘Great Wave off Kanagawa’ by Hokusai is an iconic piece of art – you’ve probably seen it many times in your life. As well as designing our own unique wallpapers, we also like to bring beloved artworks like this to life as large-scale murals.

 

This mural is a simple one-step way to bring some traditional Japanese style into your space, and create a breath-taking feature wall while you’re at it.
