Anonymous asked: have you read this article about minimalism in interior decoration? What do you think? apartmenttherapy com/color-chromophobia-and-colonialism-some-historical-thoughts-185710
Thanks for the link. Very interesting, though I respectfully disagree with most of it and don’t think it is a very objective article. Though there might certainly be some truth in it, the writer is only picking and choosing ‘evidence’ from recent European history and foreign cultures that will enforce her statement (e.g. she totally forgot to mention the colorful 1960s). She is hardly taking in consideration what colors and non colors stand for today. Her piece did not answer the question she asks in her first paragraph; “Why, despite seeing color everywhere, do we still tend to associate the minimal and the modern with whiteness?"
