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

Wabi Sabi

In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of appreciating beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete” in nature. It is prevalent throughout all forms of Japanese art. Wikipedia

Wabi Sabi became a “thing” especially in interior design in the Western world in 2018.

How can we help staging your home

Why you need a Home Stager

Home Staging Consultation is an appointment where a professional will walk through your home  and they will give you tips and advice on how to improve the marketability of your home for sale. This usually should be done long before you will list your house.

The Home Staging Professional will be asking you about some important key points :

Your timeline, your budget,  and the goal, so that the plan is actually reasonable and feasible to carry out. The purpose of home staging is simply to achieve the following goals:

Make your home look as clean, well taken care of and updated as possible
Make your home look as bright and open as possible
Make your home look as big as possible
 and last but not least … to achieve the highest price for your home.
A seller should see the expenses of professional staging as ROI – return on investment! If you had a financial planner who could give you a return on investment of 5%, 10% or sometimes even 20%, wouldn’t you be over the moon and think that they were a genius? Well that is exactly what a stager can do for you. 

The home stager will create a mood. This is called “emotional” staging and will help the buyer to picture themselves in your home.
