Wabi inspirations

I'm feeling inspired by all things Japanese at the moment. I love how these images from the beautiful book Wabi Inspirations by Axel Vervoordt have an almost painterly quality, perfectly conveying the mellow timeworn aesthetic of these interiors.

There's something quite spiritual, almost monastic, about these spaces. Although traditional, they have a simple, imperfect rustic beauty that feels quite contemporary.
