In praise of shadows by Tanizaki, the author describes Japanese toilets and compares them with the Western ones. After I’ve read the text ( which is full of positive comments about Japanese interior design and architecture I started be more interested in Japanese aesthetics of design. I have seen some pictures of Japanese interiors I realized that there are a few common features: purity, simplicity, in one word minimalism, which creates great balance for human mind, as there are no elements that would distract. Symmetry of composition of décor an design are parts of Japanese interiors .
Two words which I would use to describe Japanese interiors? Peaceful & restful.
