The grace and elegance of the Japanese sensibility is reflected in both modern and traditional Japanese homes, from their fluid floor plans to their use of natural materials. In The Japanese House, renowned Japanese photographer Noboru Murata has captured this Eastern spirit with hundreds of vivid color photographs of 15 Japanese homes. As we step behind the lens with Murata, were witness to the unique Japanese aesthetic -- to the simple proportions modeled after the square of the tatami mat- to refined, rustic decor- to earthy materials like wood, paper, straw, ceramics, and textiles. This is a glorious house-tour readers can return to again and again -- for ideas, inspiration, or simply admiration.
