Today is Culture Day in Japan where they celebrate many things including their own culture, education and the arts. Given this I thought it was a nice time to reflect on their architecture and design. Japanese and Asian style has often been associated with minimal expression and a style that lives harmonious with modern design. You’ll find it in many mid-century homes as well. From Lakeview Park to Sunset Mountain we have a few examples of this in Asheville in both gardens and home design. Scroll through our Asian inspired Pinterest board for some inspiration. Enjoy and have a great Tuesday!
