Strange ways of how my obsession with Japan influenced the interior of my room

Last month I went for holidays to Japan. I loved it! I have had there best days of my life. When I returned, Japan was in my mind constantly. I fell in love with its culture, atmosphere and everything connected with that country. I started to read Japanese books, preparing Japanese dishes and getting more and more familiar with Japanese movies. I know that this might sound a bit weird but I couldn’t help it. If I just could, I would presumably move to Japan. Unluckily, for various reasons, I just couldn’t. In consequence, I was doing my best to surround myself with as many Japanese objects as possible.

Many my friends were aware of my Japanese obsession. I have to admit they were very tolerant about this. They were regularly going out with me for sushi but there was hardly anything else they was able to do for me. At least I believed that. But then one 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 that shop to check this wallpaper up. When I saw it I just knew this was perfect for me. That was simply gorgeous. What my colleague showed me was a wallpaper with beautiful patterns on it. Nonetheless, that was not some banal patterns (page). For example, on the flowers wallpaper I have seen cherry blossom. I assume you know that cherry blossom is quite a symbol of Japan. Thus, I believe that you could imagine how cheerful I was when I saw this! Among many other wallpapers, I have chosen also 1 more oriental wallpaper, with Japanese food which I was missing so badly. I know it sounds unbelievable that I managed to find accurately what I was looking for. But trust me – new kind of wallpapers have almost each pattern you can look for. And even if not, you could design your own wallpaper with pattern you long for! I not only bought 2 wallpapers I saw, but also ordered the third one which I wanted to have in my house.

Because of that, walls in my room make me feel like I live in Japan. That is so much greater than just plain, uninteresting walls I had in my house earlier. In consequence, if you are obsessed with anything so badly as I was haunted by Japan, I would suggest to use wallpapers! It can enable you fill your apartment with the atmosphere of the area you are missing -
