I already told you that I am one pretty much against minimalism. To some this may seem silly, since minimalism indicates being in tune with the times. And you know something? I hate to be in tune with the times. My (small) house is full of pointless knick-knacks and I much prefer it this way than 'minimalist'. What's the advantage of just having clear surfaces if you cannot put anything on them anyway? Heck, what's the point of a house if it needs to stay empty?
