Rooms I Love No. 9 - Simple, Yet Dramatic

This Rooms I Love edition is all about simple design that is dramatic.  It's not about the bells and whistles. It is about celebrating the ability to create a room that is dramatically simple.  Indeed a celebration, because accomplishing such a room is not easy.  In the words of Leonard da Vinci, "Simplicity is the ultimate in sophistication."

It requires restraint.

The ability to recognize the value of less is more, takes talent.

It asks for the vision to know understated sophistication.

It is necessary to have an appreciation for a neutral backdrop.

It is a learnt equation of subtle equals dramatic.

It is very fine in texture and structure

One has to understand the meaning of delicately complex.
