Japandi Color Palette - Japandi Supply House

Japandi Color Palette

Japandi is a term growing in popularity. If you're unfamiliar with Japandi, it's a blend of Japanese minimalism and Scandinavian coziness. It's a design style that creates minimal, serene, cozy environments.

What is the Japandi Color Palette?

Layers of neutrals, with black used as an accent and greenery from plants.

Neutral Colors

Colors are vitally important in Japandi design - so you'll want to stick to a neutral color palette. Neutral colors include white, brown, grey, beige, taupe, and  surrounding shades. Japandi is also inspired by nature - so be sure to include green plants (typically non-flowery) and natural materials (woods, stones, metals).  

Layered Neutrals w/ Black Accents

You can layer different tones of neutrals to create a unique and serene Japandi interior. A minimalist, neutral palette can come across as one-note – but layering the neutrals can be inspired and create comforting environments. 

Using neutrals on a feature piece can bring out its most beautiful imperfections - especially when set in a clutter-free space with a lot of natural light.

Japandi neutrals are on the lighter side, so black (or near black) is used intentionally as an accent color. Black can be used in small amounts in decor, textiles, or a statement furniture piece.
