Minimalist Japandi design.

A space for Japanese & Scandinavian-inspired living.


Hello, and welcome! I’m Nia Cho, the heart and soul behind Kyuhyung Cho, a haven for all things Japandi, Scandinavian, and Japanese interior design.

Born from a deep-rooted passion for creating serene, minimalist, and harmonious living spaces, I’ve dedicated my life to exploring and sharing the aesthetics and principles of these three remarkable design styles.

My journey in interior design was sparked by a fascination for the effortless elegance of Scandinavian interiors, the balanced simplicity of Japanese spaces, and the tranquil beauty that arises when these two styles merge in the form of Japandi design.

I believe that the design of our homes significantly influences our emotions, productivity, and overall well-being.

By incorporating elements of these design styles into our homes, we can create spaces that not only look beautiful but also evoke a sense of peace and tranquillity.

This blog, Kyuhyung Cho, is more than just a collection of my works or a showcase of design ideas.

It’s a comprehensive resource where I aim to demystify the principles of Japandi, Scandinavian, and Japanese design.

Here, you’ll find a wealth of ideas, tips, and inspiring examples, complemented by stunning images and useful information.

Whether you’re an interior design enthusiast, a homeowner seeking inspiration for a redesign, or simply curious about these unique styles, this space has something for you.

Together, let’s embark on a journey of discovery, transformation, and creation. Welcome to Kyuhyung Cho. Welcome to the world of serene beauty and minimalist elegance.
