Love Your Space
For all the comfort and luxury you get at the five-star joint you probably paid a small fortune to spend one or two nights in, it’s always something of a seemingly long-awaited return to the ultimate comfort and luxury going back home to your own living space, isn’t it? I mean you could have had your bottom heated up by some temperature-regulating, gold-plated toilet seat while doing your business at the fanciest hotels, but all of that and anything else “they” could do to make it feel like your home restroom will never quite cut it, will it?
That’s because the ultimate comfort and luxury is that which you have complete control over, not necessarily that which was put together with the backing of a near-unlimited budget.
Money is NOT what makes someone love the space they find themselves in – personal style, preference and expression are what do the trick!
Naturally there is a range of colours, arrangement styles, design styles, and other properties which perhaps encompass the preferences of everybody in the world who has a keen eye for things that look good, and that’s why you’ll often find furniture pieces perhaps of similar designs with subtle differences here and there. When all the little variations in size, colour, texture, design, materials used, etc, aren’t enough, that’s when the true expression of one’s unique style comes to the fore and that’s when some people are willing to pay a whole lot more for what they want than what is the suggested regular value.
Paying $3,000 for a single leather chair to go in the study may seem like a crazy “investment” to one financially savvy individual, for example, but dig a little deeper into the buyer’s thinking behind their decision and you may in fact uncover what could be an even savvier approach. If I’ve been around the block and I’ve decorated and re-decorated my home countless times, eventually there’s going to come a time when I know exactly what it is that I like and exactly what it is that I’m prepared to live with for the rest of my life, happily! So perhaps buying that quality leather couch which comes with a lifetime guarantee is a better investment than having to buy one of lower quality every now and again to replace the worn out one I’ve enjoyed using!
With all of this said however, all roads lead to loving your space and it goes way beyond just arranging things and picking them out according to your identified favourite colours. The organisation of your living space mirrors the organisation of your mind, with each of these feeding off each other, so that’s why you may feel the need to re-organise every so often and that’s why most of the time a certain space you find yourself in has a certain effect on you.
If there is one space you need to make sure fits in with your daily needs in its organisation, it’s your home environment because that’s likely where you will spend most of your important time, isn’t it?
A happy home makes for the base over which to construct an overall happy life!
