Complying with the Japanese line of interior design, the small minimalist home uses a color palette that exploits the white spectrum, the main color used being stark white with creamy furniture hues, the splash of light wood being inserted carefully to accentuate knotty wood texture.
As much as possible the space allows a natural flow between elements and rooms, eradicating unnecessary items and the transition through the small spaces being as smooth and natural as possible, in the small living room area an L-Shaped sofa defines very thin imaginary line between the dinning area and living room. That small imaginary line points out the one floor space of the kitchen and dinning off the two floors height of living room as well, creating a very cozy and elegant atmosphere whilst respecting the Japanese interior design line.
A simple natural open thread staircase allows vision through it, respecting the space, satisfying its utility and functionality while still being transparent and allowing the smooth transition between floors. The continuity of space is uninterrupted, even the furniture is lifted above the ground to allow negative energy to move and never stagnate, this aspect emphasizing the feel of space as well, seeing more off the floor surface creates the illusion of a bigger space.
Even the counter in the kitchen has an empty space underneath, respecting the same Japanese interior design line, adding continuity to the spatial perception whilst remaining impeccable and modern; it just provides the perfect setup for a small gathering.
Except the entryway all the home is covered with wide plank wood floors, near the entrance tiles are defining the perimeter to properly satisfy the need of such a space, the tiles are white of course.
