japanese aesthetic 45 wabi sabi home decor ideas cover

The Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-sabi is based on the idea of beauty of imperfection. This old complicated concept comes from Zen Buddhism thus sharing its characteristics like austerity and communication with nature. Wabi-sabi is all about asymmetry, modesty, and simplicity – nothing polished, nothing glittered, just enjoy the real textures and looks. Wabi-sabi styles pairs well with minimalist, contemporary, industrial and even shabby chic and farmhouse styles – choose whatever you prefer achieving a very clean and natural or a cozy and rough look.

If you decided on this style, then earthly tones like brown, beige, taupe, off-white, green and greys of all kinds are the best way to go. Moody spaces that are so popular now can be easily done in wabi-sabi style and will look very natural. As for furniture, choose the unfinished, rough edges and imperfect shapes, worn pieces will also fit perfectly with the Wabi-sabi concept. Natural and coarse fabrics would look organically in such an interior as would handmade accessories crafted of natural stone or wood. You can also bring some natural touches like sticks, branches, pebbles, stones and rocks and even refresh the spaces with some greenery in pots or vases, just don’t go too lush and don’t use florals – they don’t belong to this style. Look at the ideas below and get inspired!
