“Gorgeous. . . . Illustrates how we can approach our homes and time spent with friends and family with the wabi-sabi state of mind. . . . Simply paging through this book makes me feel soothed and delighted. And I love how the book’s Japanese binding allows it to lay flat, no matter what page it’s open to. Simple pleasures, indeed.”
—BookPage, Top Pick in Lifestyles
“An antidote to the veneer of perfectionism so often presented by books of its kind, Wabi-Sabi Welcome offers readers license to slow down and host guests with humility, intention, and contentment.”
—Nathan Williams, founder of Kinfolk
“Wabi-Sabi Welcome is a beautiful book. It reminds us of that which is most important: a slower pace, a genuine spirit, and time with the people we care for. Julie’s writing is perfectly balanced and down-to-earth, and the photos, recipes, and stories inspire us to live well and thoughtfully.”
—Karen Mordechai, author of Sunday Suppers
“Quite simply, Julie’s take on entertaining is a primer on how to be a genuine, thoughtful friend. She has always embodied effortless grace and humility for me, and I’m grateful to have been the recipient of her little beam of light over the years. She demystifies that same magic for us now.”
—Amy Merrick, floral designer

The "Kinfolk" connection is also a little odd. The photos of people in casual mode entertaining with simple dishes like thick toast, cheese, jam and poached egg (a la Julia Child!) or a Danish smorrebord remind me of trendy lifestyle/cookbooks, the antithesis to entertaining naturally in an unpretentious way. So, these examples of seemingly contradictory elements mar the philosophical purity of wabi-sabi: natural-ness.
I enjoyed the pictures and I am definitely going to try some of the recipes.
I am so glad I bought this book. AND, I have embraced wabi sabi, which as
The author says, makes entertaining so much less stressful and more enjoyable!!!
