Jacket Description/ Back

Wabi-sabi is about appreciating the simple and letting go of the superficial -- the perfect antidote for a society in recovery from a decades-long consumerist binge. Far more than home décor, wabi-sabi is a state of mind: living modestly in the moment, stripping away the unnecessary, finding satisfaction in everyday things.

Simply Imperfect is a fully revised and updated edition of The Wabi-Sabi House, aimed at moving past our belief in life, liberty, and the pursuit of stuff to finding beauty in austerity, serenity and authenticity. This beautifully illustrated book reveals ways to introduce wabi-sabi into your home such as:

  • Clearing clutter and blocking noise
  • Integrating salvaged and recycled materials
  • Making and growing things yourself (or supporting local artisans who do)
  • Taking time and space for self-reflection.

Wabi-sabi is everything that today's sleek, plastic, technology-saturated culture isn't. Simply Imperfect asks readers to see that mass-produced perfection is seductive but boring. This gentle, inspiring book is a must-read for anyone who is overwhelmed by consumerism, or whose focus has shifted from getting more to getting by.
