House Tour | Hazukashi |

Thursday, May 8, 2014










When I found this beautiful Japanese house designed by Alts Design Office over the weekend, I knew this week would be the perfect week to feature it. As I mentioned earlier this week I am gearing up for my first big craft sale and I am looking for some zen and calming images to relax me in places other than my house. Right now my house is - well, picture the opposite of those things. It's what you might call a complete and total mess. And this place has the most calming atmosphere. I also love the architectural details of the house-shapes throughout the house. Which also seems apropos for me at the moment as my business started with my embroidery work and, in particular my "home is where the heart is" pillow covers (because for me that is just so very true). But as I have been working on moving away from embroidery and into different design aesthetics, I still try to incorporate the sentiment and continuity of 'home' in the sentimental nature that it all started with. I find myself making lots of house shaped things. And I adore how this house has such a continuity of design; the same outer shape of the house is found repeated within the house (which I think lends it to being a much more modern design feature). Continuity is important and this house is so charming.

  1. Oh WOW. I was picturing something Nordic, but Japanese makes perfect sense. I love it. It's the opposite of life, but that's why I love it. Those arched doorways: just perfect. The creepy bird in the middle of the room: less so. ;)

  2. Love the shape of the doorways. You're right the architectural aspects of the whole place make it so unique and appealing. And don't worry, my house is the same cluttered, mess it always is. Sigh.

  4. Christine, I love this house. Normally I'm not drawn to such sparse design, but as you point out, there are so many charming things about it and of course, I love those dining chairs :) Wishing you all the best with your craft fair, I know it will be a big success for you!

  5. This minimalist approach intrigues me, in a good way. I also like how the space looks so modern, despite all the wood involved in the design - something I usually associate with interiors which are too rustic for my taste.

  7. Okay what, I cannot get over those arches. I'm really into all of the natural elements and different wood tones

  8. I've always loved Japanese architecture. We, Japanese, has limited space on lands so our houses are small but well constructed that you don't feel tight on space.
    This house is amazing!!! love the wood panel throughout !!!
