In direct contrast. wabi-sabi is all about finding beauty in imperfection. It involves grounding oneself by forming a deep connection to the earth and enjoying the simple pleasures of life. Above all. it centers around recognizing the importance of authenticity and striving to remain authentic in all aspects of one's life.
We're not talking about the old-school green chalkboards of the past.You can buy black chalkboard paint at most home improvement stores for less than $10 and paint a wall all by yourself in just a few hours. And the look is very cool. even if you refrain from scribbling all over the wall.Why is decorating with chalkboard paint a thing?The color black is hot in the world of design.
Wabi-sabi is about deliberately working to find the beauty in existing imperfections. With that in mind. feel free to leave a rough edge to your completed design. That decorative bowl that you glued back together after it fell and shattered? Feel free to give it a place of honor. Your unmade bed? Here's permission to call it “artfully mussed.”
As for how to go about pulling those things off. your best bet is to focus on the layout. Wabi-sabi interiors favor paired down layouts where the functional items are the focal point. Build the room around the furniture and be sure to leave plenty of negative space.When you're ready to consider accessories. pay special attention to items that also have a functional purpose.
