I'll tell ya. Simple and elegant is hard for me. I like busy and loud. I like a lot of input. A LOT.
When we go somewhere new, my husband always teases me and says, "Oh, I forgot. Your inputting," when I am gawking around all big eyed. I am like that robot on that old movie with Dan somebody and the character "Stephanie." (Been a while since I have seen it - it's from the 80's.)
It's hard to find an empty wall in my house. I just like a lot of stuff to see.
So I am guessing that is why simple is hard for me. I feel like something is missing. I will keep working on it but this is what I came up with last night. Not quite there yet.
