Wabi-Sabi Welcome applies the basic principles of the wabi-sabi aesthetic to modern entertaining. It's about being ! attentive to your guests (listen without being distracted; unplug), creating a welcoming environment (leave the door unlocked; make time to be together), choosing modest decor (dishes and furniture made from materials that endure, such as wood or clay), decorating with nature (with an emphasis on foraged, t store-bought, blooms), finding beauty in imperfections (wrinkled linen napkins, along with a relaxed attitude about late-coming guests), and much more. The book is organised into chapters of five locations - Japan, Denmark, California, France, and Italy - places where the approach to home decor and entertaining best reflects wabi-sabi principles. The book is complete with lush photography and practical checklists.
