Beauty Is Never Wasted - and neither is simplicity

"The opposite of luxury is not poverty because in the houses of the poor you can smell a good pot au feu. The opposite is not simplicity for there is beauty in the corn-stall and barn, often great simplicity in luxury, but there is nothing in vulgarity, its complete opposite."

So Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel (1883—1971) told photographer Cecil Beaton in 1966.

The quote taken from this wonderful blog that came highly commended in a posting in another wonderful blog: Little Augury
