About this Episode

What a perfect time to embrace the perfectly imperfect!

Today we explore the concept of Wabi Sabi as a trend, attitude & approach.

Wabi Sabi goes deeper than just being chill. It is an an attitude & approach to living that dates back to ancient times.

In recent years the term has crept into the home deocr venacular.

Today we discuss what it mean to approach life & home in a Wabi Sabi way, the hallmarks of the Wabi Sabi in decor and specific ways you can incorporate it in your home.

Items with patina - graceful aging - are very Wabi Sabi.

This post by Kelly explores why we love things bearing the patina of age. Read it HERE.
