I like simple kitchens, without a lot of superfluous or extra, unneeded details. My mother’s kitchen, on the other hand, is so full of decorative clutter and superfluous stuff that I simply can’t find a place to set down my coffee cup! She buys every unnecessary, superfluous item advertised on TV—I often wonder what drives her to buy such an excess of silly things.
Quiz: When is something superfluous?
- When it distracts you from what matters.
- When it has too many details.
- When it is not needed.
