Pause and Revitalize

Pause and Revitalize #7

Today, let’s consider the objects we place around us — the items, large or small, that uplift and help us.

Albert Hadley, American interior designer and decorator (1920 – 2012):
Decoration is really about creating a quality of life and a reality in that life that nourishes the soul that makes life beautiful. That's what all this is about. Not just what's' in and what's out.
Louis Kahn, American architect based in Philadelphia (1901 – 1974):
Design is not making beauty, beauty emerges from selection, affinities, integration and love.
William Morris, English textile designer, poet, novelist, translator, and socialist activist (1834 – 1896):
Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.
