A word on the art of decoration
Japanese decoration have become extremely popular in Western countries for its aesthetic, its zen atmosphere, and its balance. In traditional Japan, decoration was inspired by the country's culutre, and was thus based on love and respect for nature. The layout of furnitures had to fill the household with a feeling of peace and harmony. It is an art in its own right, and is often harder to master than one may think.
