Trending: WABI-SABI

The latest design trend of 2018 hails from Japan. Unrelated to the Japanese Spicy Sauce, Wabi-Sabi is a Japanese philosophy that celebrates impermanence and imperfection. It’s about accepting life’s faults and impermanence. What this means for home décor is skipping the showroom-ready spaces and embracing that well-loved and lived-in look. The trend emphasizes the beauty in natural pieces and celebrates the imperfections in those pieces that make them truly unique.

To start using this trend in your own home, look for weathered wood, natural wrinkled linen, worn furniture, earthy color pallets, handmade ceramics, any piece that brings a sense of authenticity to the space or, most importantly, anything that helps make your space feel more like home.
