If I ever ask Tim where something is he ALWAYS says “did you check your butt?” and thinks it’s so clever and hilarious every time, so in honor of packing all our bags again tonight and not knowing where anything is... here’s a butt! We’re heading to LA for a wedding and Oakland for an engagement shoot this weekend— give me the scoop on where the best donuts are, my good people! EDITED TO ADD: Tim thinks he’s being mischaracterized here and wants an amendment that clarifies he “only says that 95% of the time” so there you go 🙄

Brooming marvellous, if you ask me. . . Super wide brushes just basking in the sun minding their own business till I walk past with my pesky phone! 😂

Confession - I have commitment issues. I find it really hard to commit to major household purchases. . When the light hits the living room in a certain way, I think how nice it might be to have pink velvet sofas. . But in reality, I would never be able to commit to pink sofas, because next month I might want green instead. . So instead I dabble in blankets and cushion covers. . . . #calm_collected #gatherandcreate #sweetsimplehome

“Space and silence weigh equally upon the heart. A sudden love, a great work, a decisive act, a thought which transfigures, all these at certain moments bring the same unbearable anxiety, linked with an irresistible charm. Is living like this in the delicious anguish of being, in exquisite proximity to a danger whose name we do not know the same as rushing to our doom? Once again, without respite, let us go. I have always felt that I was living on the high seas, threatened, at the heart of a royal happiness.” Albert Camus, The Sea Close By - #albertcamus #theseacloseby #pacificcity #oregon #oregoncoast #westcoast #bestcoast #coast #cliffs #sea #afterlight #acertainslantoflight #darkandlight #findingthelight #inpraiseofshadows #vsco #vscocam #vscogood #shotoniphone #latergram

Loved last night's Inlab on Food, colour and time: ' The first event Color Through Time takes inspiration from Jun’ichiro Tanazaki’s text In Praise of Shadows (1977), and will use food to facilitate dissonance between perception and experience, as the relationships between appearance, taste and texture become complicated and re-adjusted. Approaching the sensorial experience through technological time, the evening will fast forward through centuries of evolving light sources, and transition from handmade to mechanized methods of food handling. The various flavors served over the course of the evening will explore, through a kind or reenactment, changing environmental sensibilities that redirect the aesthetic experience of the beholder. The flicker of the flame finds familiarity in the fluorescent tube, but so much has changed in the span of time between them. This first event seeks to offer its participants a time traveling of sorts, compressed into a few hours, towards a kind of atmospheric schizophrenia. Maybe the future is made from the past? Or maybe the past is just a collection of future artifacts? @vaneyckfoodlab #inpraiseofshadows

“The quality that we call beauty ... must always grow from the realities of life.” Junichiro Tanizaki A part of walking around, visiting markets and museum, in order to try to understand better Japanese culture, I read "In praise of shadows" an essay from Junichiro Tanizaki. It helped me quite a lot, clarifying doubts about simple acts of everyday life in Japan. #crossculturalchairs #designresearch #design #japan #chairs # junichirotanizaki #inpraiseofshadows #chair #tokio #hokkaido #arigato #productdesign #chairdesign #zaisu

“I have written all this because I have thought that there might still be somewhere, possibly in literature or the arts, where something could be saved. I would call back at least for literature this world of shadows we are losing. In the mansion called literature I would have the eaves deep and the walls dark, I would push back into the shadows the things that come forward too clearly, I would strip away the useless decoration… Perhaps we may be allowed at least one mansion where we can turn off the electric lights and see what it is like without them.” - In Praise of Shadows by Junichiro Tanizaki image source: amazon, edosanpu, brainpickings #architecture #readers #taylorssabd #sabdstudioi #junichirotanizaki #academic #inpraiseofshadows

. ORGANIC FLAX PLANT . | . ISĒ . Linum Usitatissimum translates from Latin as "most useful linen." In naming this species, botanists recognised the inherent value of the humble flax plant. For ten thousand years or more, man has known this gentle gift of nature was the source of textiles with special properties: soft hand, rich colour absorption, lasting durability, and unrivalled comfort.

Love all art books, but with a lack of space in NYC, we especially love these small gems from friends (thank you @yurishimojo), @kathyryan's gift to @devingo913, @printedmatterinc, and @clevelandmuseumofart (the William Morris and @kerryjamesmarshs books are beautiful and were free to museum visitors!). #inpraiseofartbooks

a khadi ashram handkerchief. going by the visual and functional criteria in my head about what i would usually call a handkerchief, a set of criteria that have arrived from the world around me, this one doesn’t really qualify. but then why not? if i look at it with tanizaki’s eyes (‘in praise of shadows’), it’s a beautiful parallel to all that is western (and by that i mean not an apt complement) in our homes, cultures and needs. #khadiashram #khadi #khadiindia #fabric #textiles #handkerchief #zakka #locallife #localliving #livinglocal #inpraiseofshadows

“The quality that we call beauty, however, must always grow from the realities of life, and our ancestors, forced to live in dark rooms, presently came to discover beauty in shadows, ultimately to guide shadows towards beauty’s ends.” – Junichiro Tanizaki, In Praise of Shadows, quoted in the lovely ‘Japan: Season by Season’ by Sandrine Bailly⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was so happy to see so many of you take on Day One of the wellness challenge yesterday, on the theme of ‘Simplify and beautify’. The past few months have been something of a challenge in homemaking for me, so I welcomed the chance to think about this again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We have been in three different rentals since we moved to this part of the world, and most of our belongings are in storage. I am immensely grateful that we found a generous and understanding landlord in a place where there is virtually no long term rental market (as everything is holiday lets), and our house is warm and clean and absolutely fine. But I cannot wait for us to get our own home, an old place with character and beautiful shadows, and unpack our precious things. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We have decluttered many times over the years, so now all our things definitely align with the principles of ‘utility, simplicity, beauty, story’ – everything has at least one of those characteristics. So the things that are left have a real place in our lives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am never cosier than when curled up in a cosy armchair, drinking tea from my favourite cup, surrounded by shelves lined with books, promising tales of far off lands, or lives well lived, or delicious food, or a magical story. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (continued in comments)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #minimalism #inpraiseofshadows #aquietstyle #wellnesschallenge #makingahome #cosyhome #countryliving #decluttering #junichirotanizaki #sandrinebailly #japanesestyle #japaneseaesthetics #simplicity #thesimplelife #simpledecor #simplestyle #neutralpalette #linen #japanesepaper #ilovejapan #inspired
