Tucked in the mountain range of Niseko Japan, Asia’s leading ski resort, the Odin Properties and Hotel serve as an ideal location to get away from it all and indulge. We were immediately drawn to the minimalist design mixed with traditional Japanese luxury; curling up on the sofa next to a roaring fire while enjoying the snowy view from one of Odin’s luxury apartments seems like the exact thing we’d need after a long day of skiing. Ok, if we are being honest, we would most likely skip a day on the mountain to enjoy a nice long bath with a glass of wine in hand in the hotel room’s private spa, or trying the Barn’s four star cuisine. Whatever your daily activity preferences may be, they’re sure to be thoroughly therapeutic.
We love the uniquely Japanese idea of minimal luxury, exuding warmth and comfort. In this kind of space it’s all about quality of materials and indulging yourself with both experiences and a design that will leave you feeling relaxed and healthy. Yes healthy. We believe that interior design has the ability to change how you treat yourself and how you live in a space. And since February is all about taking care of yourself, why not take a page from the Odin House’s book and invest in some all natural, restorative pieces, such as a new set of organic white towels, or a portable fireplace. Most importantly however, de-clutter your home, simplify your design by choosing furniture with clean lines, and look for organic materials. Even if we are die hard city dwellers, there’s a reason why now and then we crave the countryside and a little bit of simplicity!
