Achieving a zen inspired interior design for your 30 sqm condo unit is hardly a task since zen interior design gravitates around peace and serenity. Who doesn't want those in their homes? Now as we were browsing the web we read one interesting fact - strictly, zen interior design doesn't actually exist.

It's the zen principles transposed to home decorating ideas that does like calmness, clarity, conscious awareness, loving kindness all things and meditation. To achieve these things, keep one thing in mind. Nature. Play with pebbles, a piece of driftwood, a flower and a picture of a waterfall or a seascape.

They say that god is in the details, and here are some home articles we loved in this unit.

hi there! actually, pure zen designs do exist. easy examples would be homes or specific spaces of those practicing zen buddhism. in the design mainstream, however, the concept is just difficult to apply (most especially for Filipino homes). the emptiness of zen design may be pretty in pictures, but in person, it is quite unfriendly. i guess, only a few people can truly appreciate that kind of aesthetics. so, like what you mentioned, we just adopt certain principles to get the kind of calmness and serenity that zen spaces inherently have. :)
