.Wabi Sabi ! (Simplicity is key).

“…the natural melancholic beauty of things imperfect and simple.”

“Pared down to its barest essence, wabi-sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature, of accepting the natural cycle of growth, decay, and death. It’s simple, slow, and uncluttered-and it reveres authenticity above all. Wabi-sabi is flea markets, not warehouse stores; aged wood, not Pergo; rice paper, not glass. It celebrates cracks and crevices and all the other marks that time, weather, and loving use leave behind.”- Tadao Ando

Salut mes amis ! Wabi Sabi is an aesthetic that  I came across some time ago and now it as ultimately taken over how I see things . From what I wear ; what I read and how I perceive beauty . Today I want to share with you how simplicity can inspire more than ornateness. Watch and absorb.
