What is zen in home design?

“Zen design embodies this minimalist philosophy, making use of natural materials, patterns of light and space, and a near-monastic rejection of clutter. A Zen home is meant to be relaxing, contemplative and visually balanced and appealing. The ideas for structuring a life work just as well for interior design.”
