Creating the timeless and harmonious aesthetic that the Japandi and Scandinavian style promote can be hard to do. Using your spare room as a home office during the ongoing pandemic is currently very popular. Following the concept of less is more, a great idea would be to place a Murphy Bed into your spare room so it can be doubled up as both a bedroom and your daily office space; therefore, nothing is compromised and the Japandi approach is in full force.
