Deceptively simple

Posted by Kelli Welch on August 04, 2008 at 17:23

I have heard people use the phrase "deceptively simple" in situations that seem to have opposite meanings. Is it supposed to refer to something that is more complex than it appears on the surface, or something that appears complex but is actually simple?
