Kawaii is a Japanese word that means sweet or lovely , and even childlike. Appears in the Japanese language in the 70s, describing a trend that started among high school girls and little by little it spread, becoming an aesthetic phenomenon in society, to the point of being identified as a critical part of the Japanese culture.
For a character or object should be considered kawaii rounded , being small, short arms and legs and have a small mouth . The classic example of this is Hello Kitty , Sanrio star's character and protagonist of many rooms. Then, to decorate a room kawaii must consider that children should be seen in every sense of the word and an emphasis on curved lines and personal details that are original, creative but never sober. Kawaii I almost never minimalist , so prepare for an explosion of colors, stuffed animals and even food smiling.
