How my love for Japan influenced the interior of my house

16th October 2018

Last year I spent my holidays to Japan. I really enjoyed it! I have had there best days of my life. When I returned, Japan was in my mind night and day. I fell in love with Japanese culture, atmosphere and everything connected with this country. I became to read Japanese literature, preparing Japanese dishes and getting more and more familiar with Japanese movies. I know that this may sound a little weird but I couldn’t help it. If I just could, I would probably move to Japan. Sadly, for various reasons, I just couldn’t. In consequence, I was trying to surround myself with as many Japanese things as possible.

Many my friends were aware of my Japanese passion. I should admit they were very tolerant about it. They were frequently cooking sushi but there was hardly anything else they could do for me. At least I believed that. But then 1 day my friend told me about oriental wallpaper he noticed in a shop. At the beginning I didn’t know what oriental wallpaper means but I decided to go with him to the shop to check it up. At the moment I saw this I just knew it was perfect for me. That was simply gorgeous. What my colleague showed me was a wallpaper with amazing patterns on it. However, that was not some cliché patterns (I only wanted oriental wallpaper). For example, on the flowers wallpaper there was a cherry blossom. I Believe you know that this is quite a symbol of Japan. Therefore, I am conviced that you can imagine how cheerful I was when I noticed it! Among many other wallpapers, I have picked also another oriental wallpaper, with Japanese landscape which I was missing so much. I know it sounds amazing that I was lucky to find exactly what I was looking for. But believe me – modern wallpapers have nearly every pattern you could look for. And even if it doesn’t, you are able to design your own wallpaper with pattern you long for! I not only bought 2 wallpapers I saw, but also ordered 2 more that I wanted to see in my apartment.

Because of this, walls in my apartment make me feel like I am still in Japan. It is so much better than just plain, uninteresting walls I had in my room before. So, if you are obsessed with anything so badly as I was haunted by Japan, I would suggest to think about using wallpapers! It can enable you fill your apartment with the atmosphere of the area you are longing for –
