Life Aesthetics is a beautifully easy concept to use. Basically all it there is to do is to pair some basic, unattractive concept, such as information or data with something that has attraction or appeal. Below I shot some photos to explain.
In photo 1, it is plain, boring and unattractive. There is nothing to appeal to the eye. There is no story there, it's just a sidewalk, so we would lose interest rather quickly.
However, if you add some small details, like fall leaves, it creates a story in our minds about the time of the year, how it feels and what it might mean to you.
When you add some design to something unappealing, it will draw a person in.
If you have an app and the information is rather boring, adding something artistic to it will bring more appeal than if plain information.
Another concept of Life Aesthetics is to contain clutter in a way that is neat or organized looking. For example, I was recently in China and the way they displayed daily living in a neat and organized way is beautiful.
Daily life can have disorder, but if it is contained in a neat and attractive way, it becomes aesthetic.
In this example it is concept of disorder - the clutter or stuff on the desk - met with clean organized environment.
