Hello. For those who doesn't know yet what ZAKKA style is, today I'll dedicate this post to explain in detail what is it, because I love this style and so far I haven't found (at least not in english or spanish) a detailed post on the Internet that explain this style as detailed as I'm gonna do it here.
First of all I'll tell you what this style is to me, based on what I have observed. It is a style of Japanese origin that covers: home decoration, cafes, shops, fashion and crafts. It is a unique, creative and natural style, and for me even with a touch of magic.
Regarding decor details that make this style are:
♥︎ Light colors on the walls, preferably white to give more light and create more space.
♥︎ Accents and unique handmade touches, but not anything handmade, it should be very simple and natural stuff, later I will show you what I mean.
♥︎ Forest things decoration, like rabbits, mushrooms, pine nuts, deers, etc, in fact this style is very related to Mori Girl Style.
♥︎ Polka dots or plaid designs.
♥︎ The predominant material in this type of decor is wood either light or dark.
♥︎ The color palette is very natural, earth tones, brown, white, beige, gray, light green, etc..
♥︎ Other items that go well with this style are: recycled glass jars, which can be used to store buttons or another craft stuff, strawberries, owls, decorative tapes (washi tape), matryoshka dolls, vintage things, such as cameras , plants, baskets, kewpie dolls, eiffel tower, doily, etc.
This style is very popular in Japan of course, but it is popular too in other places in Asia.
Here are some examples of this cute style:
