Create a Zen-Like Interior

There are a few ways a home can feel upon entry—cozy, exciting or sometimes, like a breath of fresh air. Cozy vibes conjure visions of hygge sheepskin and woven tapestries. Exciting entryways can have a pop of colorful modern art or a knick-knack from that thrift store down the street. But zen homes make us think of minimalism and organization, a home that makes you feel connected to the earth—no matter if you reside in a high-rise or farmhouse. For those of you who like your space to feel like the latter, follow along with some of our favorite ways to incorporate more zen into your space.

Inspired by traditional Japanese design and Buddhist practice, a zen home is focused around a world view called wabi-sabi. The term and overall design aesthetic is defined as “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.” This brings to mind a sense of functionality, a kind of unfinished perfection. The kind of home where you can roll out of bed and head straight to the yoga mat (without tripping over unnecessary furniture or decor).
