Wabi-Sabi Home is a look that’s rough around the edges and sees the beauty in imperfection but is at the same time creative, modern, and brave.

Wabi-sabi is the Japanese ancient philosophy of finding beauty in the imperfect and embracing the humble. It is not a decorating style but a concept that celebrates 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 that worn, scuffed, peeling, and handmade objects are not just beautiful but preferable to pristine ones, because they bring a place to life and make it feel homey.

This book is divided into five chapters that each expand 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.
