Saturday musings: Paring down with Wabi Sabi.

Photos of simple, unadorned rooms I admire.

Photos from Apartment Therapy via Sköna Hem and Emmas Design Blogg: Unlike shabby chic, wabi-sabi decor inspires minimalism that focuses more on the people who live in the space than anything else.

The aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete” (according to Leonard Koren in his book Wabi-Sabi: for Artists, Designers, Poets and Philosophers).

The concept of finding beauty in “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete” may be more true in today’s economy than ever before. Look for beauty in found objects, your grandmother’s antique hutch, a hotel letter box.
