Wabi Sabi Bathroom Inspiration

Apr 3, 2009 by

Wabi Sabi celebrates the “mellow beauty that time and care impart to materials,” as eloquently explained by Soetsu Yanagi. To me, this bathroom from Notebook Magazine is an idyllic example of Wabi Sabi, with its aged wooden floors and the prevalence of weathered natural elements.


The best part about Wabi Sabi is that it does not involve high-brow design that has four zeros attached to the price tag.  Instead, some of the items you already cherish in your home could be quantified as Wabi Sabi, as are natural materials that are available through the hand of Mother Nature.


Happy Friday friends!  I wish you all a wonderful upcoming weekend — perhaps filled with Wabi Sabi inspiration and finds!
