The Overall Look
"There's a huge migration toward less is more," says Ft. Lauderdale-based designer Patrick Knowles, "a trend to a simpler environment, less clutter. People understand that you do not have to have clutter to have things." Marty Lowe, of Marty A. Lowe, Inc. Interior Design, also in Ft. Lauderdale, put it this way. "Minimalism is hard. What is in view has to be perfect." Beauty is in the details, in exotic leathers, stunning joinery, the perfect alignment of architectural details."
