For years know we have always been so impressed by Japanese design in many of Seattle’s modern homes. The clean lines and the way space embraces nature is very Northwest. It also speaks to our region’s Japanese heritage. Here are a some of our favorite finds from HOUZZ

Exhibit #1:
This home design in Lakeforest Park by FINNE Architects encapsulates the spirit of Japanese design flawlessly. Minimalist and modern at the same time, this house nestled in the woods just exudes an aura of relaxation. The soft lighting and open design creates the perfect space for everyday living or silent meditation.

Exhibit #2
This japanese soaking tub by Lane Williams Architecture and Quantum Windows and Doors will keep you warm and relaxed. An oversized tub complete with Japanese style sliding windows keeps you connected with nature while staying in the comfort of your own home. It’s your own little Japanese spa.
 
Exhibit #3:
Finally, this lanscape design from the Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island is the classic example of a Japanese zen garden. Feeding on the Japanese concept of beauty in randomness, this garden will whisk all of your worries away on a sunny day. Designs like this one can easily be adapted to any home, from a small version in an apartment to a huge one such a this.
