Fav Quote Friday | Art and Design: The Art Of Economy


"You know you have reached perfection of design, 
 not when you have nothing more to add, 
but when you have nothing more to take away."

 ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry 


When we remove the excesses,
the unnecessary, the clutter, and the coverings, 
we expose the true essence of things; 
and create a purity, 
an economy of design.

What could be removed, 
cleared out,
taken away,
gotten rid of?
  ...that would leave you
with a pure essence, 
an economy:
nothing wasted, 
nothing more than you need?
Could you apply this same concept 
to your life?

If you did, 
in what ways might 
your lifestyle change?
