    So, something like minimalism?

    Well...sort of? The thing is, it's more than just that, you know? But I suppose it's the best word to describe it.

    The derail on free speech and aesthetic criticism has been moved to the Graveyard. If there is interest in discussing the merits and methods of aesthetic judgment, a new thread can be started for that purpose, and the moved posts added to it.

    Do stay at least within a stone's throw of the topic.

    I find myself just drawn to the word, aesthetic, on it's own. I think it's beautiful on it's own. But I'm definitely drawn to a lot of images. I just sort of deem them 'aesthetic' on my own because I think they're pretty, or, I want that. I don't know what it is.

I am not limiting to aesthetics of beauty as @magpie has a fantastic thread for that already, and if you don't already, you should certainly participate in it, it's rather smashing. but rather any aesthetic is fair game so to speak. This will likely be a very subjective thread. As in diverse. As in there's no accounting for taste, but please try to avoid being disruptive or judgemental. You are of course free to express yourself, I request only that such expression be done with respect. In regards to NSFW; As far as I know spoiler it with a warning and don't break the forum rules.

    Everyone, is of course welcome, to constructively participate ^_^
    Given such an open invitation, I will.

    I like @Kas' idea of categories. My preferred aesthetic will depend on the application as well. Am I enjoying artwork in a museum, choosing decor for my house, or getting dressed for a formal event?

    In general I prefer things that are understated, subtle, perhaps even on the minimalist side. I don't like overload: too many colors, shapes, disparate elements, clutter. Juxtaposing elements that "don't go", or seem at odds with each other is OK if thoughtful, creative, streamlined. In fact, I like art that presents elements in an unusual and creative way: patterns that are not obvious, different perspectives on common things, focusing on just one part of a thing, etc. Artwork that is too realistic doesn't draw me in, but if it is too formless or incoherent, it comes across as noise.

    With places, it is similar. I like spaces that are interesting without compromising comfort and utility. Materials are important. Nothing more boring than plain off-white plasterboard walls and wall-to-wall carpet, or the office equivalent. Wood is good, and glass, and metal. Plain stone gothic churches, not baroque ones overrun with gratuitous decoration. I was in one such place in Europe that was so ornately decorated with gold, green, etc. It had the sensation of a jungle run amok. It didn't help that the day was rather humid. I kept expecting water to drip on me, and felt creeped out in a way that hardly ever happens.

    So, examples:
