Bring the Beauty of Japan’s Cherry Blossom Season into Your Home with Cherry Blossom Tree Wallpaper

Cherry blossom tree wallpaper is one of those interior trends that never tends to wane. A staple of the chinoiserie style, Japanese cherry blossom wallpaper has the power to bring romance and elegance into the home. But just why is it so popular, and why does this delicate pink flower compel people to travel from all over the world every year to witness the spectacle of cherry blossom season in Japan?

Japan’s cherry blossom season – what, why and when?

From late March to mid-April and sometimes even early May, Japan’s iconic cherry blossoms, known as sakura, command the attention of visitors from the world over, as their spectacular flowers blanket the country in delicate pink magnificence.

Japan’s cherry blossom season is seen as an important event on the global calendar. Starting in Kyushu in southwestern Japan in March, daily news reports follow the wave of pink as it advances northward. And in celebration, the nation joins together to hold ‘flower watching’ parties known as hanami.

The most common cherry trees in Japan are Somei-Yoshino, which erupt into masses of pale pink flowers. And then there’s the graceful Kiku-shidare-zakura, the weeping cherry blossom tree, often found bringing colour and joy to riverbanks and parks.

Why is cherry blossom so important in Japan?

Sakura is the national flower of Japan. For many Japanese people, the blooming of the cherry blossom trees symbolises optimism and renewal. But the flower can also symbolise the fleeting nature and fragility of life, as well as fresh beginnings, and friendship.

Tourists traditionally plan their visits to Japan in springtime with meticulous timing in order to witness cherry blossom season. Because of the cultural significance of the sakura, there are numerous events, festival and tours focused on this season.

In Japan, cherry is considered so much more than just a beautiful tree. The sakura have powerful ties to the history of the country, as well as its culture and identity. They were originally used to divine the year’s harvest, and are now considered one of Japan’s most iconic natural symbols.

Why is Japanese cherry blossom so popular in interior design?

Cherry blossom has an innate ability to bring a sense of calm and relaxation into an interior space, as well as sparking happiness and optimism through its sheer beauty.

Its delicate pink hue lends a touch of elegance, and a sense of romance too. It’s a flexible colour to work with, pairing perfectly with contrasting shades like yellow and green, but blending equally well with neutral or white palettes. This is precisely why it’s so loved by interior designers across the globe, and why Japanese cherry blossom wallpaper has become such a favourite too.
