Urban featured the famously elusive french style in today's issue. The French emphasize aesthetic beauty in all sectors of their lives. As a French nursery school teacher puts it, "Even if you grow up to be an accountant, it's better to be surrounded by beautiful furniture than by ugly furniture". This reminds me of not too long ago when I blabbered to my mum about how I want to own a beautiful house and decorate it myself as she patiently nodded. It's hard to imagine constantly being in a dull environment. Beautiful things stimulate the senses and give pleasure. It's a sad thing that flowers in Singapore are so expensive or I'd be whipping up floral arrangements for my house every week.
