STAINED GLASS BODY

[Albert + Gillian Maysles at their home in Harlem, via The Selby]

Gillian, why is maximalism better than minimalism?

Because you can collage everything you ever have been given by all your friends + family + visitors in all your life. It’s not about possessions, it’s about memory + attachments.

    • I seriously can’t get over this place. It’s been on my mind for months, too. I love the idea of clutter + seeing what I have in front of me, the spines of records + books, paintings everywhere, plants + plates and everything. Life is so messy… shouldn’t our houses reflect the richness of our existence?? I can’t WAIT to see what my house will look like when I’m 80!
