i never liked calling myself a minimalist because i thought it was too close an association with one who loves modern design, or in my vocabulary a modernist. but i have discovered that i am, in fact, quite the minimalist. i still don't have a couch in my living room because of my very particular and excessively peculiar need for minimalism without a hint of modernism.
the problem is not only in my living room, but this morning i discovered that it has spilled over into my kitchen, notably in my china cabinet. if ever you were invited over for some tea, you would find the cranberry scones served on very simple white bone china. this of course worries the girl who makes a great effort of distancing herself from the nearest eileen gray-inspired side table. so today, with an immense eagerness to spruce up my china, i found some beyond-elegant pieces that would make any minimalist swoon!
