Design Perfectionists at Home?
The article “No Room for Mistakes: Design Perfectionists at Home” struck a chord with me when it appeared in the Home and Garden section of New York Times earlier this week. I consider myself a minimalist at heart but it struck me that a good number of these homes and “perfectionists” were psychologically disturbing. This is, it seems to me, at the very least, the opposite on the spectrum of what you see on the show “Hoarders.”
Then I read the comments last night and I found them even more provocative than the article itself. Questions: Can the space you live in reveal that you are personality disordered? What is the purpose of a home? (By the way, if you’re a real fan of the original “Absolutely Fabulous,” you should get a special kick out of the home pictured above.)
Read the article, look at the slideshow and then read the comments here.
