Wabi Sabi Decor in Arizona

Apr 17, 2009 by


The last place I expected to see Wabi Sabi decor was our hotel in Arizona.  Lo and behold, however, at the Boulders Waldorf in Scottsdale, I was surprised by the beautiful ambiance of the “casita” where we stayed.  The unfinished wooden beams and floors juxtaposed against nature linen fabrics and raw silk pillows were very Wabi Sabi in aura.


I especially liked how the wood beams and ceiling were set against the fan, whose streamlined design was beautifully accentuated with its natural wood grain.


Each morning, we enjoyed breakfast on the deck, which featured salvaged tree trunks for tables and chairs set atop untreated planks.   Who knew Wabi Sabi could live so peacefully amongst high-falutin designs?
