While on the subject of white and neutrality as an interior theme (see last post), it seems appropriate to also consider subtlety, or lack thereof.  In our culture we are constantly accosted with more information than we are able to or care to absorb. Complexity rules. Some, I included, still believe in the "less is more" philosophy. This photo, again from Coté Bastide, exemplifies the idea that, when considering elements (line, color, form) for inclusion in a design, often, one change is enough. In this case, it is an embossed pattern which defines the uniqueness of this product. Someone made the decision that this was enough. We appreciate that. Your thoughts??
