How-to mix contemporary interior design with elements of Japanese culture
The hotel suites at the new Aman Tokyo are a delightful lesson on how to combine contemporary interior design with the flavor of traditional Japanese design to create a warm and welcoming space.
The suites have a simple color palette where we see white, wood, and a dark grey/black found throughout. Meanwhile, sliding shoji screens, a standard element of traditional Japanese interior design, stretch from one end of the suite to the other.
The bathrooms follow the design of traditional Japanese baths, with charcoal-colored basalt stone tiles which draw the eye across the room to the private onsen with floor-to-ceiling windows.
In keeping with Japanese interior design, accessories are have been kept to a minimum so as not to distract from the view.
Some of the suites also have kitchens, dining rooms and lounges, all with minimal furnishings and picturesque views from the floor-to-ceiling windows.
