This quote is probably one of my all time favorites. I remember first discovering it in years ago and immediately writing it down, hanging it up, not wanting to forget its brilliance. I find this especially useful when it comes to design. Whether it’s a logo or interior, simplicity always wins in my book. I’ve found this has become more and more true as my design taste evolves over time, I really believe less is more. I would much rather have less items of value than many useless ones, and I’ve found that I love creating a home where everything has its place, purpose, use or value. The best possessions are those with significance and a story.
So for those times when we find ourselves wanting something we don’t need (which for me is more often than I’d like to admit- I’m a blogger after all!), let’s try to remember what Da Vinci so wisely stated, that “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Chances are we don’t need that extra gadget or gizmo that we’ll forget about anyway. Then here is my ultimate reality check: if we have a roof on over our heads and food on the table, our home is perfect just as it is. :)
P.S. Come back tomorrow for a Dream Job interview you won’t want to miss! :)
