Noren, Door Curtains のれん ノレン 暖簾
They have been used since the Heian period.



A detail of this Daruma is here:
My Photo Album Daruma


::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


Originally "Noren" is a shop curtain which is hung in shop and restaurant doorways to show that they are open for business. However, nowadays it is used as a home decor, and also as a blindfold substitute.To hang on the wall, put a rod into the through hole of the upper part. There is a slit in the center of the noren, so people can pass through easily.
Typical Japanese motifs are printed on noren.

Different seasons, different colors
色:
春SPRING
は、すがすがしい感じ新緑の季節でグリーン系さくら色などが合います。

夏SUMMERは、暑いので涼しげな色で演出すると効果的です。青系水色系が似合います。

秋AUTUMNは、紅葉の季節、橙色黄色ブラウン系が似合います。

冬WINTERは、そのまま季節を演出するならば、生成り色グレー系の色などが良いですが、夏の演出とは逆に暖かい風合いの暖色系を使ってみるのも安らぎます。

また、For all seasons 季節を問わず藍色は落ち着いた雰囲気をだしますので和洋どんなお部屋にもお勧めです。

forced home visit -
the door curtain in front of the store room
invites me to peek in
Tr. Gabi Greve

Usually there are no door curtains in front of storage rooms, so the curiosity of Buson is stirred.
