Our new wabi-sabi home

Hygge, I can take or leave. I've never been able to understand what's wrong with plain, old cosy. Lagom, I kind of get. Meaning 'just the right amount', it's a concept that raises its eyebrows at excess. But, wabi-sabi, the new-ish craze on the Farrow & Ball painted interiors block, is something that I can wholly jump on board with.

Wabi-sabi is all about finding beauty in imperfections, and in our crazy world right now, I think we all need to dismiss the quest for perfection and seek comfort in the simple, the quirky, and the not-quite-right. Right?
