The way that my obsession with Japan changed the interior of my house

Last year I spent my holidays to Japan. I loved it! I have spent there best week of my life. When I returned, Japan was in my mind all the time. I fell in love with its culture, atmosphere and everything connected with this country. I became to read Japanese books, cooking Japanese dishes and getting more and more familiar with Japanese movies. I am aware that this can sound a bit weird but I couldn’t help it. If I only could, I would probably move to Japan. Sadly, for different reasons, I just couldn’t. In consequence, I was trying to surround myself with as many Japanese things as possible.

A lot of my friends were aware of my Japanese passion. I need to admit they were pretty tolerant about it. They were repeatedly cooking sushi but there was hardly anything else they could do for me. At least I thought so. But then one day my friend told me about oriental wallpaper he noticed in a shop. At first I didn’t know what oriental wallpaper means but I went with my friend to the shop to check it up. At the moment I saw this I just knew it was perfect for me. That was simply gorgeous. What my colleague showed me was a wallpaper with stunning patterns on it. Nonetheless, that was not some cliché patterns (I only wanted oriental wallpaper). For example, on the flowers wallpaper there was a cherry blossom. I Believe you know that cherry blossom is quite a symbol of Japan. So, I believe that you can imagine how content I was when I noticed this! Among many other wallpapers, I have picked also another oriental wallpaper, with Japanese food that I was missing so much. I know this sounds amazing that I managed to find precisely what I was looking for. But believe me – modern wallpapers have nearly every pattern you can wish for. And even if not, you can design your own wallpaper that would have pattern you long for! I not only bought 2 wallpapers I saw, but also ordered two more that I wanted to have in my room.

As a result of this, walls in my room enable me to feel like I am still in Japan. That is so much better than just plain, uninteresting walls I used to have in my room previously. Therefore, if you are obsessed with something so much as I was haunted by Japan, I would suggest to think about using wallpapers! It could help to fill your apartment with the atmosphere of the area you are longing for – .
