Ways that my obsession with Japan changed the interior of my room

Last year I spent my holidays to Japan. I loved it! I have had there best week of my life. When I came back, Japan was in my mind all the time. I fell in love with its culture, style and everything connected with the country. I started to read Japanese literature, cooking Japanese dishes and getting more and more familiar with Japanese movies. I am aware that this may sound a little weird but I couldn’t help it. If I just could, I would presumably move to Japan. Unfortunately, for various commitments, I just couldn’t. Thus, I was doing my best to surround myself with as many Japanese objects as possible.

Lots of my colleagues were aware of my Japanese obsession. I need to admit they were very tolerant about it. They were often cooking sushi but there was hardly anything else they could do for me. At least I believed that. But then 1 day my colleague told me about oriental wallpaper he noticed in a shop. At the beginning I didn’t know what oriental wallpaper means but I decided to go with him to this shop to check it up. At the moment I saw it I just knew it was perfect for me. That was simply amazing. What he showed me was a wallpaper with great patterns on it. Nevertheless, that was not some cliché patterns . For instance, on the flowers wallpaper I have seen cherry blossom. I Believe you know that cherry blossom is widely known a symbol of Japan. So, I believe that you could imagine how overjoyed I was when I noticed it! Between tons of other wallpapers, I have chosen also another oriental wallpaper, with Japanese food which I was missing so much. I am aware this sounds amazing that I was lucky to find precisely what I was hoping for. But believe me – new kind of wallpapers have nearly each pattern you could look for. And even if it doesn’t, you can create your own wallpaper with pattern you long for! I not only purchased 2 wallpapers I saw, but also ordered the third one which I wanted to have in my room.

As a result of this, walls in my apartment enable me to feel like I live in Japan. It is so much better than just plain, boring walls I used to have in my house earlier. Thus, if you are obsessed with something so badly as I was haunted by Japan, I would recommend to think about using wallpapers! It can help to fill your room with the atmosphere of the place you are missing – useful source.
