japanese editing

some of you may know of my affinity for Japanese sensibility. whenever i travel to asia, i ensure/secure some time at muji..mandatory visit(to be honest the product imported into US is not the same product you get in asia..its just how it is). i will sacrifice sleep, dim sum, foot massage...and everything to stock up on some basics.

well, Hitoshi Uchita, owner of j'antiques in tokyo really blends the flea market find with his minimal approach. everything in his home seems so loved and full of life..and a quite used, yet everything is so organized and clean. just how i like it.

anyway, with the condition of these finds there are never worries of something getting a scratch or stain...and if they do, they are just part of the story.

i hope you enjoy these images as much as i do. found on the selby

Welcome back! I've missed your posts. I love these images. So simple and elegant with a cozy feel. There are some great Japanese companies that create fabulously simple and chic textiles and homewares.

I'm amazed that these images are from Japan (checked the Selby page out, loved it)...so beautiful and unexpected, the combination of the antiqued items and simplicity is sublime...and very you!
Antique asian plus the long beloved norwegian aesthetic could possibly equal perfection (with a little farm thrown in for good measure of course).

I love these images. The simplicity is so soothing. Gives ones brain room for dreaming, creating and meditating...

I also love scratches and nicks and wear and tear. I agree with you, it adds charatcter, and that's always a good thing!

Happy 11/11/11, darling dear bro! Don't forget to make a wish!

I miss you too, very much.
