Project Brief

The public area design, unlike those regular interior designs, focuses on the dining room decorations. Alongside the balcony, the elegant dining room has the adequate sunlight, and is decorated with the Japanese-style long tea table, bamboo curtain, wood ceiling and floor, all of which spawn the laid-back and modest ambience. The living room decorated with the small tea table and the orange chairs exposes the cordial atmosphere. The private area encompasses a master bedroom, second bedroom and washisu, each of where is decorated with the delicate tatami in different colors on edge covers, bringing out the unique charisma and the modest Japanese style.

Project Need

The wood Japanese-style dividers decorated at the entryway symbolize the prosperity and continuity of the descent group, and create the clear view. The unique crest exemplifies the spirits of nobility and inheritance. The small delicate living room decorated with the wood borders on the wall, with the symmetrical chairs and the wall lamps is artistic. The dark cypress ceiling decorated in the dining room implicitly delineates the boundary with the living room.

Design Challenge

The tea table and the ceiling lamp adorned with shimenawa are decorated in the classical Japanese-style dining room, where the ceiling lamp ornamented with shimenawa is eye-catching. The Japanese-style roller blinds and the exquisite tatami seat under the TV wall consistently correspond to the design principle. The customized oriental-red air purifier installed in the white and wood color space is captivating. The Japanese-style main wall is enchanting. The dining room perfectly decorated with colors exposes the refreshing, refined and elegant charismas.


In different colors, the edge covers of tatami decorated in different rooms reveal the exquisite features and the serene atmosphere. The blue tea table and the two tatami seats exemplify the gentle characteristics of the private area.
