Zen is a spiritual practice for the Buddhist. It is a condition in which a person has a harmonious interaction with the nature and the world around him. This concept was adopted in interior decorating. Zen style of interior decoration is a style of room decoration in a clean and simple manner.
It is based on the use of minimal amounts of things which are readily available and it involves very meager expenditure. In short, Zen style is something that is not ornate and it does not attract too much attention. Exotic furniture, flashy colors and expensive accessories are not involved in Zen style of interior decoration. The core of this home interior design is the way of arriving a soothing and quiet atmosphere inside a home. It results in a more peaceful and relaxed state of mind.
At last, Zen interior design creates something that one really needs at the end of busy day. Clean and simple lines, open spaces, natural materials, simple furnishings and solid colors with a gentle texture are the major elements that must exist in a Zen style of interior decorating.
