This Japanese-themed home features sophisticated furniture pieces, well-proportioned and unique architectural details (like a Japanese tea window separating the living area from the dining area), and an artfully laid-out tableau of well-selected accessories.
Although it looks like the work of a professional interior designer, this home's layout is actually the work of the owners, who prefer a Japanese aesthetic because of its simple lines.
The house, previously a traditional 1970s bungalow with elaborate balusters, was streamlined over the course of two months, and filling it with the right furniture pieces took all of two years.
