If I would ever have had the opportunity to build my own house, it would consist of two separate and identical homes connected by a large entry… one house would be decorated dark and moody and the other one at the opposite of the hall, light and airy!
The ideal scenery to finish the fight in my head and hart between light and dark spaces. Fact and told a hundred times before and written in my Masterplan 2.0 stories, I love both of them equal, and by thinking of the fabulous interiors by Axel Vervoordt, one of the homes would be filled with the Wabi Sabi inspiration we see in his work, while the other home would be a minimal heaven in soft tones.
No need to say all books by Axel Vervoordt were on my book wish list… have a look at today’s choices from New Mags including some gorgeous pictures of Axel Vervoordt’s work. Also have a look at the home he made for Kim Kardashian (if you haven’t seen already!)
Don’t forget to read the previous two blogpost to see more of my choices.

WABI SABI INSPIRATION
Wabi-Sabi is a Japanese concept that derives from simplicity and authenticity. It values the beauty of imperfection. Elegance in natural materials, nobility without sophistication, timelessness with tradition: these are the principles that define Axel Vervoordt’s personal take on the concept.
This book features Vervoordt interiors that are inspired by wabi philosophies, showing readers how to create calm, peaceful spaces in which beauty is distilled to its purest form.
Created with contributions by architect and frequent collaborator, Tatsuro Miki, the book’s photographs by Laziz Hamani transport us into the unique atmospheres of these Wabi Inspirations.
