The Japanese term 'zakka' (many things) applies to anything that improves the appearance of your home or yourself. It consists of attention to detail and product design, placement and usability. Sure maybe its just a consumerism catchphrase but zakka enthusiasts see it as a form of self expression and finding beauty in the mundane.
I am a big fan of the Japanese lifestyle/interior magazines that are Zakka to the core, having them in your home makes your home a better place. The above images are from teaSpoon, Ku:nel, and Come Home magazines all which can be shipped from Japan via this great site!.
