Wabi Sabi -2

Wabi Sabi is hard to duplicate and that makes it uniquely your own. There are many ways you can adopt it into your very personal interior design style.

Using earth tone colours not only on walls and floors but also in decor pieces and using natural materials that are aged and show their life, is one of the characteristics of a Wabi Sabi decorative style.

But if you do not feel the rustic basics of Wabi Sabi is your “cup of tea”, there are ways to still learn from these Japanese life style principals. You do not need the most perfect and polished furniture in your house to make you feel comfortable. Wabi Sabi opens our eyes and minds to things we already own and might have in our house to give it a new place and learn to appreciate them again.


Chose the right material that will age beautifully. Why don’t you go out and visit Thrift stores or Second hand stores to find pieces you like and have those one of a kind imperfect aged hallmarks of a Wabi Sabi lifestyle:

  • Modesty
  • Economy
  • Roughness
  • Asymmetry
  • Simplicity
  • Austerity
  • Intimacy
  • Comfort
  • as well as the appreciation of Natural objects and Forces of nature
