I've been quite absent on the blog lately. I'll be back in full decluttering force one we close on our condo on Monday. Until then, take a look at this New York Times article about a designer who took minimalism to the aboslute core: everything in his house is white.
What do you think? Minimalism sacrificed for aesthetics? Or pure efficiency?
I appreciate the aestetic beauty and I'm glad it works for him. But I'm glad that minimalism is a flexible ideal. I prefer to appreciate books for what's in between the covers. And I hate cleaning dirt off of white surfaces.
