Two Unusual Japanese Home Designs With Unique Zoning Techniques

When living space is limited, it's time to get creative - and it doesn’t hurt to move to a minimalist mind set. That’s what happened after the purchase of two homes in Japan.

The interiors stand awash with calm and minimalist Japanese design, predominantly based in white with pale grey accents, and light wood elements to turn up the thermostat of visual warmth.
