In 2018 you are likely to see the influence of wabi sabi, an ancient aesthetic philosophy rooted in Zen Buddhism. Wabi sabi accepts and celebrates imperfection. The tones, materials, and decor reflect our natural world, while emphasizing minimalism.
Have you noticed the reclaimed industrial design of your favorite gastro pub? Have you considered using old barn wood for flooring or wall treatment in your next renovation? Is it nostalgia for an “simpler” time, a need to reconnect to nature, or a desire to use recycled materials?
Here’s some wabi sabi inspiration from our Pinterest page.
