your Coffee shop outfit + Coffee table decor
- Home decor ideas are on the rise as we continue quarantining around the globe. We’re really eager to decorate at home with the “Japandi” trend. It’s a mix of Japanese and Scandinavian design aesthetics and you can bring it home:
- For Japanese vibes, we recommend vases like this porcelain one (made in Japan) ($32), one of these Japanese-made teapots, tea cups and saucers, or a Japanese washi-LED lantern.
- For Scandinavia, check out one of these Scandinavian-inspired rocking chairs or Scandinavian-inspired Skol counter height stools; any of these items might help you start your Japandi home “coffee shop” decor 🙂
