One of the aesthetics I like most is minimalism. I am not one to enjoy over-ornamentation. I think that this has its place in some contexts, such as historical architecture, but I would not purchase anything for my home of this nature.

I prefer items with simple, sleek designs. This is especially true when it comes to appliances. I would much rather have a sleek, stainless steel refrigerator than one with color or additional “bling”.

That being said, I also like the craftsman aesthetic as well. This is especially true when applied to houses. I love the way craftsman-style houses include the triangular, overhanging roofs. I also like how these houses all have plenty of windows for natural light, and large porches. I would feel well at home living inside this style of house.

    Hello Noah! At first, I thought the house in the picture is yours until I finished reading the post haha. I totally agree with you especially on appliances. I Would totally favor the house in the image over many others.

  • I completely agree with you. I especially love the interior designs and your reference to architecture and design for the modern home. I can honestly see myself living in a space like that with no problems.
