This is a beautiful interiors book.
I love the eastern way of incorporating the 5 elements into their homes.
air, earth, wood, fire, water.
Utilizing space and light, living with nature, organic materials, things made in a kiln, baked from mud, carved from bamboo...


  1. that image with the daybed
    forth from above
    that is how I would love
    to have our living-room
    light and serene

    so, after the garden
    you are thinking about the interior?
    did you receive my e-mail
    about Piet Oudolf?

    have a fine sunday!

  2. Love it, too,
    dear Jazz. Its a harmony of energy.

    Do you know cooking after the theory of 5 elements? or cooking in circle? Means the same... ingredients of earth, metal, water, wood and fire: cooking oil, garlic, salt, tomatoes and chili with a touch of cream come full circle.
    Yummy and bracing.

    Miss you in Europe, honey!

    x Ariane.

  3. long time no hear, jazzy...
    here's a little something for you to partake in, if you like.

    much fluttering love,
