Wabi sabi describes a traditional Japanese aesthetic sensibility based on an appreciation of the transient beauty of the natural world. It embodies the melancholic appeal of the impermanence of all things, especially the modest, the rustic, the imperfect, and even the decayed. Wabi sabi represents the passage of time and what remains. written by Donna Watson
The Wabi-Sabi House, a book about the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection. Wabi-sabi is not a decorating style, but rather a mindset, with no list of rules. Creating a wabi-sabi home is the result of developing our wabigokoro, or wabi mind and heart: living modestly, learning to be satisfied with life once we strip away the unnecessary, and living in the moment.
