A lovely model, good use of light and simple is often best. This causes the eyes to focus on the model and not the background. Plus, it's just using the beauty of the female figure in a very artistic sense.
See, this is what I'm talking about. Sure, it's a nice picture, the lighting and location are interesting, and the model is obviously attractive, but what is the art of this? What is the context of the photograph, where's the background that gives this meaning?
So far as I can tell, it's just an attractive woman standing arched in the nude in somebody's house. What is she doing there, when did she arrive, and why is she content to stand about with no clothes on? Good art would be composed to convey any piece of this information- hell, you could just put it in the description and give it far more background than it has now.
It's a good picture with a fitting model and set, but with as little apparent effort that was put into this, I am not convinced. There is much untapped potential here. Come come, Photorotic! Give us something more! A name, a sign, anything!
I'm a neurotic bastard that likes context to art. For me, nothing tasteful or inspiring could or should be "simple" in name or nature.
But, like I said, it's a very good picture! I just think a vague little scene written in the description could do wonders for it. If hipsters can hang around abstract art and blather on about it to give it meaning, you could probably turn this single frame into a film script.

Maybe art is just ment to give you the posibility and the imagination for your own script.
(If I go to an exhibition or Museum, then there isn't always an explanation, but just the art to admire and make me drift away...) Simple is IMHO never Simple... Just loving the image as Art for what it is!
