Typically when most think of a luxury home often times a large or spacious home of mansion proportions comes to mind. But when you consider the Merriam Webster definition of luxury, something adding to pleasure or comfort but not absolutely necessary, luxury is well within reach of anyone willing to make the effort to add simple pleasures and comfort to their own home. In essence whether you live in an apartment or detached home, luxury is an inside job. Assuming you already own the basic furniture necessities you can create a home environment that you will grow to love with the addition of accessories and minimum efforts designed to boost your home’s sense of pleasure and comfort. The key to an eventual life of luxury is selecting your first room and taking one room at a time. By doing so your home will become a reflection of your personality and leave an impression on those you invite into your space. So why not make it a positive one.
Add pillows to your home décor. Not only do pillows add comfort to a room but they add color, patterns and texture that can create either a warmth or coolness to the space depending on your preference. For those who find mixing and matching patterns challenging help is available here.
Add at least one piece of artwork that makes a statement and provides a source of inspiration for the room’s color scheme.
Create the illusion of a spacious room by adding mirrors. Placing one across from a window with a beautiful view doubles the impact of the view and the natural lighting reflected back into the room.
Add a fresh floral arrangement. A touch of nature in the form of fresh flowers can not only enliven your home but depending on the variety selected can also provide an aromatherapy experience without going to the spa.
Lastly add pleasure to the comfort of your home by inviting a few close friends for dessert (my favorite comfort food) and conversation. It doesn’t have to be a major undertaking. What’s most important is the experience you create for the people in your life that you value.
