Nor cold, nor impersonal. Over the years, the Wabi-Sabi crossed borders from Japan to many of our homes bringing a touch of naturalness, warmth and serenity to all stays. No space or object you resist this style evoke the imperfection and agree the passage of time. Many of its features we find, now collected, in one of the most recent projects of The Room Studio: ‘Paseo de Gracia’. A work that does not seek to be the perfect definition of a house Wabi-Sabi, but an example of how to create spaces that are inviting and warm through the decor.
Compared to other trends, the Wabi-Sabi is characterized by being much more than a decorative style. You could say that it goes beyond the object, it is not itself off, but that integrates trying to create stays harmonious and simple, those who manage to convey to us from the first moment. In fact, your goal is always to find the beauty in imperfection caused by the passage of the years.
Because, though it sounds a mantra, to accept the passage of time in the objects that surround us, it is always one of the priorities that require many homeowners. It is the case of this apartment of 230 m2 to 280 m2 of terrace on which sought to create a space that is timeless. But, how do you get that timelessness? To use materials in which we can feel how they evolve in a natural way it is a good way to do it.
Another way of getting to the heart of this style is using noble materials shades of neutral and calm as the micro-cement, iron and wood, which creates a dialogue between the different spaces. A range of colors warm and soft that leads us to remember Mother Earth, the color of the year 2021, according to Bruguer that connects us with nature, introspection and rest.
The materials neutral play with color dots that become the protagonists of each room bringing personality.
In addition, we must not lose sight, as they evoke in this project, which or the perfection or symmetry are relevant in the field Wabi-Sabi. Let the furniture speak for itself, expressing through its features all the time can get you to impregnate them.
This apartment located on Paseo de Gracia is already covered by the small nuances of this japanese style that does not go away. A method that returns to fashion and to remind us how important it is to get a home in which to feel comfortable, at peace, away from the coldness that covers many of the exterior spaces.
We leave you now with a gallery of images that brings us closer to the interior of this residence in natural, warm and full of inclinations of Wabi-Sabi.
