Iris Apfel: "More is more and less is a bore."

At 91 years old, Iris Apfel is busier than most people half her age. She told me that the secret to her success is her sense of curiosity. When it comes to learning and personal style, Iris proclaims, "More is more and less is a bore."

I think Iris' curiosity informs her sense of style as self expression, curiosity is playing around with shapes and colours and making them her own like few people can, it's style not costume!

I agree with her when she said you don't need to spend a lot of money to be stylish, it is all in how you put things together, I couldn't agree more :-)

Every once in a while I feel like perhaps I should "streamline" my apartment, knock it off with the crazy eclectic colorful stuff and go for something more sedate. This notion lasts for about one minute. The next time I even *dare* to think that way, I'll remember fabulous Iris and these photos. More, more, more!

What an Inspiration Iris is! I too am a Maximalist and every so often get the urge to Minimalize by Editing and Purging my Beautiful stuff I have Collected and Love... now I shall remember Iris's words of Wisdom and not be in a hurry to attempt to become something I most definitely am not... a Minimalist! *Winks*
