Zen is a peaceful and grounded way of life, an intensely personal decor style that reverberates in the simplicity of handmade art form. Zen design is minimalist making use of natural wood, cottons and silk, old world patterns of light and space, and absolutely no clutter. A Zen home is relaxing, introspective and visually appealing. Setting the free flow of energy in a space means clearing all obstacles. Envision your home as a stream of clear sparkling water, an open, uninhibited space in which rooms merge into each other and doorways opening into more vivid and open spaces.
Zen design is based around natural light. Framing modern windows with old wood arches and the flutter of sheer curtains brings in sunlight that dances on your spirit. The washed patinas of old wood rustic armoires with floral carvings brings the zen of nature into your home. Restful and harmonious the pure joy of handmade doors with carvings that reflect the energies of the sun and the chakras as well as the natural hues of reclaimed wood, the subtle hues blend into a relaxing ambiance that elevates the openness of space.
