We’re enjoying Chic Simplicity all this week, and taking time to enjoy all the little details that sometimes get missed in our hurried lives, living by the mantra Less is More.

It’s Monday folks, and in a sharp contrast to last week’s Surface Design spotlight, we are turning it down, way down to appreciate Chic Simplicity, because the Devil, they say, is in the Details, and it’s often what we *don’t see* that make pieces special.
