Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Wabi Sabi in Sköna Hem

Don't miss this great article in Sköna Hem about the Japanese philosophy of Wabi Sabi. It's something I've been interested in for years, but I find it hard to find much information about the subject. The article is in Swedish, but the pictures are very inspirational too.

    thank you for mentioning that article! I can't wait to read it!

    I use http://translate.google.com and select "swedish" to "english" (my language) and it translates a selection of text or an entire web page for me.

    Thank you sunny for the link to have the article translated. I really enjoyed reading the article and I love the part about the seasons and how you can bring in the things that you collect outside and display them inside to bring in the feeling of that season. I learned a lot!

    synd att det som skrivs om Wabi Sabi stämmer inte med orginal filosofi, 30% är sant, 70% är bara påhittat av västerlandska konstjorda kunskaper hämtade från ingenstans
