Life nowadays is complicated – we’re always rushing here and there, and working way too hard. Our home should be our sanctuary away from the daily grind. We all deserve to have a little “luxury” in our lives, and especially in our home.
Here are a few things we feel everyone deserves to splurge on:
- High-quality bedding. There is nothing like crawling into bed after a long hard day and being comforted by some ultra soft sheets. What to look for? Try bamboo (sounds crazy, but they are the ultimate in comfort!), or cotton sateen.
- Artwork. Pick something that speaks to you – no matter what the subject. And we’re not talking all original art, just things that you are drawn to. It could even be photos of your family – for impact, have them enlarged in black & white and use simple black frames. It’s amazing how uplifting it is to walk into your home and be surround by things you love.
- Good (matching) dinnerware. After a long, hard day at the office it’s sometimes hard to get in the mood to do even more work by cooking for the family. Setting the table with my beautiful, chef-inspired, white dinner plates and chrome flatware always helps get me motivated. I can pretend that I’m in a 5-star restaurant – as long as I can ignore the screaming child in the background 😉 Cloth napkins are another luxury that I can’t do without.
