I sort of hate the sterility and sameness of the no-clutter movement. I love my books and fabric and art supplies. I know there's a happy medium, and I'm trying to recognize when the stuff owns me more than I own and love it, but an empty white space with maybe one oh-so-carefully-considered cerebrally chosen object is kind of dull, in my opinion, and it doesn't look like the home of a person who makes things, reads things, has been places, and lived a life. It looks like the home of someone who wants to impress me with their level of control.

I too am tired of this word being abused; it's kind of an insult to people who actually are educated, experienced curators.
