Wabi-Sabi Home | Mark and Sally Bailey

Regular price $49.00

If you're unfamiliar with the ancient Japanese philosophy of finding beauty in the imperfect and embracing the humble, grab this book or give it to a friend. It's both an excellent introduction to wabi-sabi, and a confidence booster that your home doesn't need to be pristine or perfect, but can celebrate the imperfect, the transient and the time-worn.

Wabi-sabi is alive and well in many Japanese homes, where patinated, weathered, and aged items are treasured and modest, everyday objects are given elevated status by being displayed in a measured way. In Wabi-Sabi Home, Mark and Sally Bailey visit home owners all over the world who understand the beauty in worn, scuffed, peeling, and handmade objects, that bring a place to life and make it feel homey.

Divided into five chapters, each expands upon an element of the Wabi-sabi home: textiles, textures, colors, handmade pieces, and collections. Each chapter considers how to incorporate these features into your own space and focuses on a single home that encapsulates these ideas and reveals the satisfying and authentic beauty in imperfection.
