simple, quiet, down to earth. an interior with the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.
with my home i tent to keep a fragile aesthetic ideology alive in any form of expression available according to the philosophy of wabi-sabi, one of the core concepts of japanese culture. it seemed to me a nature-based aesthetic paradigm that restored a measure of sanity and proportion to the art of living. wabi-sabi resolved my artistic dilemma about how to create a home without getting caught up in the dispiriting materialism that usually surrounds such creative acts. wabi-sabi – deep, multidimensional, elusive – appeared the perfect antidote to the slick, saccharine style of interiors i usually see and visualize.
