Adding deep blue color to a monochrome space

This may not be wabi sabi, in the strictest sense, but as an artist, and lover of color, I enjoy seeing what a touch of color can do to an otherwise monochrome or all natural interior. Here - a deep, blue shade. Ink blue, almost black. Rather beautiful, don't you think?

Rethink your table settings

Bringing nature to your table via wooden plates and cutlery may not be the most practical, perhaps? But it is very trendy. Very right now. At flee markets you may still find beautiful wooden items for almost nothing. Prefer new ones? Check out british designer Gary Allson's wooden plates, bowls and cutlery below.

Why be a minimalist?

Why be a minimalist? Leo Babauta's explains at his website Zen Habits:
It’s a way to escape the excesses of the world around us — the excesses of consumerism, material possessions, clutter, having too much to do, too much debt, too many distractions, too much noise. But too little meaning. Minimalism is a way of eschewing the non-essential in order to focus on what’s truly important, what gives our lives meaning, what gives us joy and value. Read more on minimalism here.  Below: Spalted Beech Table by Howard Werner.

DARK STYLING - Natural Beauties from Japan


REPOST from March 2013. 
Award winning japanese designer Katsumi Machimura started off as a jewelry designer in the 1960s, and didn't dig his hands into clay until years later. His stunning ceramic work has both elegance and roughness - proper gems in themselves! Katsumi Machimura also love gardening, and share his passion for nature in his garden blog. I borrowed these pictures of his ceramic work and natural photos from Atelier Katsumi here.
