I guess the new modern version of calm and serene is bare and spare. These kinds of interiors all start to look alike to me, arty graduate student digs, done up in chilly layers of white and white and more white. I suppose aching for some kind of creature comforts, like soft throws and lots of books and a wisp of window covering to soften the cold lines of the windows marks me as a design dinosaur. I just can't imagine yearning to come home at the end of the day to such austerity, Clutter free - yes, pretty and calm - yes but with warmth.

Sara's apartment is certainly lovely but so cold and strangely bare. It feels as though she has just moved in or is on her way out. Just feels cold to me. The darker walls in the dining room were beautiful and the flowers on the table provided some eye candy but the rest feels very anemic. I certainly admire her clutter free mantra, but adding just a bit of personality would have given this pretty space a true soul.
