There was a much-discussed article a while ago about a homeowner who built a house on his own and ended up decorating house in "extremely bad style." Looking closer, we found that elements in his home were familiar:

Note: different people have different opinions, I don't want to say that this style is ugly
Cement and gray paint for walls, like a rough house, with dilapidated furniture, withered flowers and plants, and specially made antique decorations, isn't that wabi-sabi style?
Wabi-sabi style originated in Japan, combining simple beauty with simplicity and tranquility. Sabi is brilliance of time. In instrumentation, more attention is paid to representation of beauty of natural precipitation.
Let's follow Axel Vervoordt (the master of western art, best in wabi-sabi style) and look at his wabi-sabi villas scattered around world~
Casteel van's Gravenwesel
This is a single-family castle-style villa surrounded by mountains and rivers, with beautiful natural surroundings.
Blessed with warmer tones, it looks a bit like an earthen house at first glance.
On closer examination, it reveals a different kind of poetry.
Mottled walls, unfinished household items. Simple but heavy.
The tone of oil painting with a very comfortable visual effect conveys a warm and unhurried atmosphere in every detail.
Calvin Klein House
The address changed to sunny Miami, and wabi-sabi was presented differently.
An off-white wall not only expands visual space, but also responds better to bright outdoor lighting without being too dazzling.
The walls, corridors and ceilings are harmonious and united, calm, but not monotonous.
Boris Vervordt's residence
Boris Vervoordt is son of Axel Vervoordt, perhaps because he was brought up from childhood. It can be said that this villa in his family corresponds to design ideas of his father.
The whole house retains old traces of history and remnants of years, and household items have almost nothing to do with sophistication.
From building materials, furniture accessories, ceramics, sculpture, artistic oil paintings to structural chimneys, all objects are unique.
But this aesthetic art of imperfection is precisely essence of wabi-sabi style.
