If you want to achieve a simple look in your condo design, then maybe you can do with a Japanese interior. Japanese interior calls for earthly colors such as beige and brown. They seldom (or never at all) use colors that attract attention (like candy apple red, apple green, powder blue or any pastel color for that fact) compared to other designs. They would like to retain simplicity in their interior and as you design your home, make sure you have symmetry when it comes to your things (buy two display earthen pots instead of two). Never ever forget their famous short table for your dining room! I’m sure your friends will love the new look!
