"When you make something complex awesomely simple, it's not just creativity, it's elegance."
I think this idea of elegance, of awesome simplicity is exactly the ingredient that makes a perfectly constructed minimal room feel cozy as opposed to cold. Admittedly, I tend to skew a little minimal in my aesthetic sensibilities, but I think this awesome simplicity (if applied correctly) can also make a wildly layered, maxed-out space read modern and open rather than like a scene from hoarders.
Awesome simplicity -- it's the panacea, the magic bullet, the holy grail. Some proof...
