Rate this:

Wabi-Sabi Welcome applies the basic principles of the wabi-sabi aesthetic to modern entertaining. It's about being attentive to your guests (listen without being distracted; unplug), creating a welcoming environment (leave the door unlocked; make time to be together), choosing modest décor (dishes and furniture made from materials that endure, such as wood or clay), decorating with nature (with an emphasis on foraged, not store-bought, blooms), finding beauty in imperfections (wrinkled linen napkins, along with a relaxed attitude about late-coming guests), and much more. The book is organised into chapters of five locations--Japan, Denmark, California, France, and Italy--places where the approach to home décor and entertaining best reflects wabi-sabi principles. The book is complete with lush photography and practical checklists.
