I’m a firm believer of form following function, but I was also a fashion designer for more than ten years. So, to me, the key is balance; to a point, you can have embellishments without detriment to functionality or usability. Fancy for fancy, like in fashion, only works for well-established brands.

I agree that the key is balance.
When in doubt, do less. Because adding more effects, for the sake of fancy-looking, can only distract and annoy.
