Luxury can mean a lot of different things to different people.
Luxury can mean a spa day, a designer outfit, or even a nice car. The word “luxury” exerts a level of quality and sophistication.
To me, luxury is a lifestyle. Luxury is a frequency at which you can live your life.
1. Luxury means enjoying time with those you hold close.
Having all boys (active boys at that), I’ve had to learn how to ride a snowmobile, how to wakeboard, surf, kayak, the list goes on. However, these are all things that we do together as a family. These are memories that we create, with love and laughter.
Time is the ultimate luxury, and in my book, there’s nothing better than to spend it on than family and friends. As time with my family is of utmost importance in my life, I’m honored to bring this ideal into my projects. I design interior spaces in ways that will enhance the lifestyle of those who live in them.
2. Luxury means traveling and experiencing new places.
From the Villas at the Boulders Arizona to Esperanza Cabo San Lucas, I love experiencing new places and seeing all that our rich and diverse world has to offer.
Even more so than just going to these places, but experiencing all that they have to offer. Maybe it’s trying the local cuisine, going to a show, whatever it may be. It’s about immersing yourself in the local scene and culture. I bring this mentality into my designs, making every project, every home, unique in what it has to offer.
3. Luxury is sporting a designer outfit.
Wearing clothing that took time to make, clothing in which you can feel the style in every stitch, makes your entire day feel luxurious.
A fashion designer that truly inspires me is Coco Chanel. She was a trailblazer and, through her designs and her vision, she changed how women dressed. Her designs will never go out of style. This expression of design is something I truly believe in and try to emulate myself. Truly good design will never go out of style.
4. Luxury is sinking into the driver’s seat of a Bentley.
Who wouldn’t want to drive a classic, luxurious, beautiful vehicle? Cars like Bentley and Lamborghini elevate your experience in getting from A to B. Whether it’s high design or an understated elegance, these cars emulate luxury.
Your home is where your wellbeing begins and ends. It’s essentially the vehicle that drives your life forward, and lucky for you, those closest to you are along for that ride.
5. Luxury is your lifestyle.
If you had an opportunity to start and end your day in ultimate luxury, wouldn’t you take it?
Interior design allows you to maximize that opportunity, and begin living a lifestyle of luxury. A space has the power to takeover your overall mood and your overall wellbeing, so why not invest in that?
Interior design work that inspires me, such as that of Kelley Wearstler and Clodagh Design, emulates timeless design while redefining luxury.
Design is about finding what is right for your space, for your needs, for your family, for your lifestyle.
Luxury is who you are and how you live. Luxury is a frequency at which you can not only live your life, but love your life.
