Minimalist is not a word that describes me. I am always striving to de-clutter and not acquire any junk. However, I love the things I love and I love a lot of things. I find that having beautiful things around me makes me happy. I am never quite comfortable in minimalist spaces. Another thing that doesn't quite make me feel at ease is going to someone house and encountering a glass table. A glass table is one of those things that doesn't evoke the feelings of comfort and relaxation. It just looks cold, gets dirty really fast and feels pretentious. I also don't enjoy stark spaces devoid of any personal touches. I enjoy spaces without clutter but filled with color, streamlined furniture and full of personal flourishes.
This entryway pretty much sums up my sentiments. While I may not necessarily pick the wallpaper or the stairway runner I love the way the patterns and colors all work together. I especially love the Ikat bench.
