by pieces of moments
Speaking in extremely general terms, America is a Maximum kinda place. People like things to the Max. I have always had minimalist tendencies.I prefer solids or simple stripes to patterns. I like my veggies adorned only with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mark Bittman is my kitchen hero. I love minimalist music (big “duh”).
I think I’ve mentioned it before, but seriously if I could live in a Philip Johnson Glass House (mmm…maybe with half opaque glass for my version) I would be a happy camper. Well, mostly. Is there a way to make a hybrid of the Glass House and an English manor house?
A small way to satisfy my minimalist aspirations is through Muji. I LOVE MUJI. I want my house to be an artful mix of Muji, antiques, and Anthropologie. It’s so extreme in its minimalism it literally inspires my breath to catch a little bit in excitement. I know, it doesn’t take much. But then again, that’s the beauty of loving the simple, isn’t it?
