The aesthetic of beauty infused with great meaning is clear. Tall windows with unexpected views. Contemporary furniture. Warm, white walls and local art. Concrete floors with custom throw rugs. Architectural artifacts. Spacious glass showers. And modern electronics. All set to an intimate, studio-size space bathed in natural light.
Without a meaningful aesthetic, design is either a humdrum repetition of cliches or a wild scramble for novelty.
