{ fall, in love }

By Brit

Have you already felt that first chill in the air that whispers of fall ? I always find it so exciting when summer changes to fall, my favorite season. I am in the mood for changing colors, crisp breezes and comforting food with cozy flavors like homemade pumpkin soup, warm scones and hot apple cider. Enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of autumn !

{ norwegian summer nostalgia }

By Brit

I wish I could be in this wonderful Norwegian summer retreat right now.  The Swiss-style villa in Esviken was built in 1872. The property, unfortunately neglected over the years, is situated in the woods of Asker near Oslo and is part summer house, part art gallery. Architect Kristin Ellefsen, working for the foundation Stillscape, transformed it and created a cultural meeting point.Photos via Nina Dreyer Hensley & Jim Hensley/ InteriørMagasinet no.4 2009

{ wabi-sabi in my home }

By Brit

Wabi-sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature, accepting the natural cycle of growth and decay. It reflects exactly the perception of what is beauty for me: the imperfection of nature or the asymmetry of anything handmade.  Wabi-sabi celebrates cracks and crevices and all the other marks that time, weather and loving use leave behind. The concept is composed of the words Wabi and Sabi. Wabi connotes rustic simplicity, quietness and anomalies which add uniqueness and elegance to the object. Sabi means beauty or serenity that comes with age, when the life of the object and its impermanence are evidenced in its patina and wear, or in any visible repairs.
My entire home is filled with wabi-sabi elements like weathered driftwood and sea shells, old things reflecting signs of the times and even handmade creations with a touch of imperfection. For me, this concept is the real meaning of beauty and style.
