From the Inside Flap:

It's easy to see why people are attracted to the Zen-like simplicity of Japanese interiors because the spare, neat rooms invite silent reflection, while offering tranquil repose in return. Japanese style also provides sanctuary from a chaotic world at the end of the day, thus gifting inner renewal to soul and spirit; and consequently, for outer mind and body too. The Japanese ethos thrives on creative ways for doing more, with less. For a life of luxury is, after all, a life of simplicity-by being free of unnecessary encumbrances. Our attraction to Japanese-style structures, interiors and gardens reflects a universal desire to live in natural harmony with self, others and the world-where the home environment reflects soulful sentiments of simplicity, sincerity, humility and purity; that continuously refresh spirit, emotions and body; and where every item performs at least one useful function, if not more, and is comfortable to the touch.
Japanese Style offers refreshing insights on the Japanese lifestyle to enhance your own home and garden, plus discover inspirations for daily living. Through gorgeous color photography, author Sunamita Lim shows how, by building with nature and embracing the discipline it takes to rule out the unnecessary or frivolous, you can incorporate the Japanese design aesthetic to create a simple and beautiful look.
Sunamita Lim's love of Japanese aesthetics goes beyond external impressions. She uncovers for readers a deeper significance that explains the important, spiritual role of beauty in Japanese culture and consciousness. Lim is author of the highly acclaimed Chinese Style: Living In Beauty and Prosperity, also filled with insights on how beauty transforms and fulfills, from within and without. A graduate of Kalamazoo College in Michigan and the University of Chicago, Lim is a freelance journalist and writer based in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
