Useful & Beautiful

“If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”

-William Morris


My professor mentioned this quote the other week in my History of Architecture class when we were learning about William Morris and I remembered that I had posted it here a while back.

I loved it then and I love it now.  If you don’t love something, don’t buy it.  Furniture or clothes, if you feel that you can’t leave the store without it, then buy it.  I think it’s far better to have a nearly empty room than a room full of meaningless or blah furniture and accessories.
