In a highly urbanised country like Japan it is a dream of many to be able to live in the countryside. This couple from Nasu in Tochigi prefecture went one better and built a tepee-shaped house which sits in the middle of a dense wood.
The unusual conical shape of the house helps the structure to blend into the surrounding wood and provides the interior with plenty of natural light, thanks to the very tall ceilings. A truly imaginative and poetic interpretation of the well known tepee structure.
Wood veneer lights can look naturalistic and flamboyant, just look at the stunning Mini Mikado suspension light from LZF. Alternatively go for something like the Cape suspension light from Moustache, inspired by flowers yet thoroughly contemporary.
For nature inspired but slightly quirky accessories look no further than the ceramics collection from Sena Gu. We also love the wooden birds from Splinter, which are great for adding a touch of woodland to any interior space.

Japanese zen style goes far beyond minimalist white spaces. It is about thoughtful spaces which encourage the contemplation of light, colours, textures and shapes - the building blocks of nature and beauty. The Shutter House in Perth is a great example.

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
