14 January 2021. We are very excited to announce the arrival of Simplicity at Home: Japanese Rituals, Recipes, and Arrangements for Thoughtful Living.
This lovely new book from Yumiko Sekine, founder of Fog Linen Work, along with Jenny Wapner, is a guide to cultivating a beautiful, joyful home throughout the year. Simplicity at Home celebrates the simple rituals and techniques rooted in Japanese traditions for decorating, organizing, preparing food, entertaining, and more.
We've had a chance to preview a copy, and the experience has left us relaxed and refreshed and wondering why we don't curl up with a real book instead of a screen more often.
Filled with beautiful photos by Nao Shimizu, simple recipes, projects and design ideas, this book takes you through all four seasons with wonderful insight into Japanese lifestyle and culture.
There's a long list of inspiring projects we want to try and here are just a few of our favorites:
Refreshing the house for the new year
Vegetable tempura and somen noodles
Yuzu bath salts
Growing plants and seeds from scraps
Simple spring floral arrangements
Patchwork linen sewing projects
We hope you'll enjoy this book as much as we do.
Available for pre-order now. The first 100 pre-orders will receive a copy of the book with a handmade bookmark signed by the author, Yumiko Sekine. All book pre-orders will ship for free within the continental US.
Orders will be shipping in February 2021.
