Finding Beauty in Imperfection

Mark & Sally Bailey

Photography by Debi Treloar

Wabi-Sabi Home is a look that’s rough around the edges and sees the beauty in imperfection but is at the same time creative, modern and brave.

Wabi-sabi is the Japanese ancient philosophy of finding beauty in the imperfect and embracing the humble. It is not a decorating style, but a concept that celebrates the imperfect, the transient and the time-worn.

Wabi-sabi is alive and well in many Japanese homes, where frayed, weathered and worn items are treasured, and modest, everyday objects are given elevated status by being displayed in a measured way. In Wabi-Sabi Home, Mark and Sally Bailey visit homeowners all over the world who understand that battered, scuffed, peeling and handmade objects are not just beautiful but preferable to pristine ones, because they bring a place to life, and make it feel homely and personal.

This book is divided into five chapters that each expand upon an element of the Wabi-sabi home: textiles, textures, colours, handmade pieces and collections. Each chapter considers how to incorporate these features into your own space and focuses on a single home that encapsulates these ideas and reveals the satisfying and authentic beauty in imperfection.

garment care

For all YOLI & OTIS garments, cold gentle machine wash and air dry.

We dye the fabrics of our carriers and accessories using only plants & herbs. Due to this, in some instances, the lack of chemicals can result in small colour runs, or fading in areas where the natural mordant may not have taken to the fabric.

Please take care when washing and use an organic or gentle environmentally friendly detergent.
