With over 200 stunning photographs, this Japanese design and architecture book showcases some of the most beautiful homes in Japan.The pure beauty of Japanese architecture and design has inspired many of the world's top architects and designers. The grace and elegance of the Japanese sensibility is reflected in both modern and traditional Japanese homes, from their fluid floor plans to their use of natural materials.In The Japanese House, renowned Japanese photographer Noboru Murata has captured this Eastern spirit with hundreds of vivid color photographs of 15 Japanese homes. As we step behind the lens with Murata, we're witness to the unique Japanese aesthetic, to the simple proportions modeled after the square of the tatami mat; to refined, rustic decor; to earthy materials like wood, paper, straw, ceramics, and textiles. This is a glorious house-tour readers can return to again and again, for ideas, inspiration or simply admiration.
Alexandra Black spent five years in Japan studying Japanese language, culture, and art and architecture. She lives in London. Noburu Murata is one of Japan's most proficient interiors photographer. His photos can be found in the Japanese EllT Deco and other leading lifestyle magazines. He lives in Tokyo.
