Japanese-Style Rooms

I love classical Japanese design. The traditional Japanese aesthetic is so perfectly balanced and refined. This sensibility is reflected in washitsu, which are Japanese-styled rooms. Washitsu are simple rooms with tatami flooring, shoji room dividers, and usually an alcove. In the following animations I have combined computer-drawn rooms with images taken from my watercolor paintings and drawings. Welcome to the green tea ceremony!
