The commodities of every day life make our day easier and more enjoyable. I have mentioned before that luxury is in the things you touch and use everyday. Someone once commented that I must have very expensive taste, but luxuries don’t have to be expensive. Here are a few of my favourite, affordable everyday luxuries.
What are yours?
1.- THE SOAP
Soap on a Rope (Always!) – I love the smell of Verbena by L’Occitane. It smells fresh and clean and looks great in the bathroom.
2.- THE SPONGE
I like their organic shape and they last for a long time – Plus they match my sponge Bob band-aids (lol)
3.- THE IRONS
Rowenta all the way – I have a team of 2 hardworking irons – The Steamium for my shirts and linens, and the Rowneta Pro-Compact Steamer for jackets, pants and polos. They are my loyal friends and they are always there when I need them.
4.- THE WOOD HANGER
They keep the clothes in the best shape and they look better than typical wire or plastic hangers.
5.- THE COFFEE
Le Cube by Nespresso – If you love coffee and love design this is the machine for you, plus the quality of the coffee is great.
6.- THE CUP & SAUCER
Jasper Conran for Wedgewood – White Strata. Simple and nice to look at. I like the saucer with its concentric debossed circles and the juxtaposition of the clean smooth cup.
7.- THE I-PHONE
What can I say, It is my loyal personal assistant.
Yes, I am pen hoarder according my wonderful team. I usually have 2 to 3 Micron #3 pens with me. Hey! you never know when you will need to sketch something or sign an autograph.
9.- THE WATER DECANTER
You need to keep hydrated why not doing it with a little bit of style.
10.- THE SHEETS
White Frette – I swore they put some sort of drug in them – Once you sleep in them you can’t replicate the experience with any other kind of linens.
