Have you heard the term wabi-sabi and wondered what the hell does that mean?! Well I did.....But now that I understand its meaning I am 100% all about wabi-sabi! It's basically the idea of finding beauty in imperfection. "It values simplicity, uncluttered, underplayed and modest surroundings."
There's nothing I hate more than a perfectly pulled together room where everything looks like it belongs together. It just doesn't feel natural. A home should look like someone actually lives there! Fabrics don't need to perfectly coordinate, tables don't need to be flawless and chairs don't need to match. Most importantly, a home should be a reflection of the owner - objects that have meaning should take center stage.
To demonstrate the idea behind wabi-sabi, take a look at the ridiculously beautiful home of Commune designer Pamela Shamshiri featured in the current issue of House Beautiful.

I usually don't buy my Christmas gifts until the last minute but this year I've been scouring the web in search of things I can purchase from the comfort of my computer (while in my pjs with a glass of wine in hand).
I haven't found the perfect gift for those on my list but I did come across these great items......It's hard not to buy them for myself!

Happy Friday Lovelies! Here's a little something to drool over. For the reissue of Hans Wegner's 1970 stainless steel chair Carl Hansen & Son teamed up with Georg Jensen to create this amazing new version. The CH112 chair is plated with 24-karat gold and only costs a mere $10,055! Despite the crazy price tag, I am still in love.
