Ciao!

I’m Italian, I am a girl passionate about design, Japan, cats, travels and many other things.

I started this blog after having finished the renovation of my first home as a owner, it was such a great experience for me that needed to be celebrated.

Why wabi-sabi?

The beauty of imperfection, the value of simplicity, the charme of the old, these are the things that capture my attention not only in design but also in life. To see the beauty in something imperfect is a challenge and a great achievement.

From the wikipedia English page:

Wabi-sabi (?) represents Japanese aesthetics and world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”.[2] It is a concept derived from the Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence (三法印 sanbōin?), specifically impermanence (無常 mujō?), the other two being suffering ( ku?) and emptiness or absence of self-nature ( kū?).

Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetryasperity (roughness or irregularity), simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.
