Being in a minimal and silent place is definitely my number one source of calmness. I have this strong fascination with minimal spaces and architectures. I prefer living in a house that has only two colors (black and white) and very spacious coz' I find it relaxing, modern and elegant. Other people may find black and white boring and lifeless but that just proves that they lack taste and some sense of sophistication. I read some other style bloggers' post about minimal colors that the color black is very easy to pull off and lazy but the truth is, it's never been easy to pull off or stick with a single color. You have to think very carefully how to make each pieces stand out even though they all have the same color and also you have to learn how can you make a single color stand out from the rest. This kind of style is never been EASY.
"Black is never boring or sad. Bright colors are what depresses me. They're so..empty. Black is poetic. How do you imagine a poet? in a bright yellow jacket? Probably not". - Ann Demeulmeester
