We are often familiar with a certain notion of luxury that is associated with status and wealth – the power of feeling like a million bucks that comes from an experience or using a limited edition product. However, as the world progresses, the notion of luxury transforms as well. Enter the notion of timeless luxury – a form of classic luxury all-enduring and keeps us mindful towards living more fulfilling lives. While it seems more abstract and, by extension, harder to understand and attain, here are some key mindful tips to stay in tune with life’s timeless luxuries:
Timeless luxury can be anything that your heart desires, as long as there is quality and thought behind each choice one makes.
Timeless luxury design can be anything you want it to be – as long as it is done with quality details and thoughtful choices
When we think of luxury, we think of something we usually see off the cover of a top-tier fashion magazine, or from the words of a classic renowned designer. I would like to contest that belief; Luxury is not something that is ‘tried and tested’, neither is it to be dictated. Timeless luxury can be anything that your heart desires, as long as there is quality and thought behind each choice one makes. Whether it is creating the perfect dinner fashion look, or creating a blueprint for your next interior design project of your first home, quality is what triumphs, and style naturally follows.
Timeless luxury is not predetermined by trends, but by your own personal preferences and feelings
Luxury is not to be emulated or copied meaninglessly – personal choices and one’s own style are to be taken in consideration as well. Luxury cannot be truly enjoyed if it does not reflect oneself in an honest way. In the world of fast fashion, for example, we are often too distracted by the dizzying displays of the latest season’s line, that we have forgotten to look inside and determine what it is we are comfortable with.
Time, one of life’s timeless luxuries
Going back to the fundamentals, luxury is all about having oneself feel not only physically a million bucks, but emotionally rich as well. This cannot be fully felt unless one has the luxury of time to enjoy small pleasures. In a long and winding journey called Life, we are often pushed and pulled in different directions with various commitments. What happened to just living in the moment? Sometimes, all we need is a breather to enjoy what life has to offer – even the smallest of things like feeling the cool sea breeze, enjoying a home-cooked meal or laughing with your loved ones. Over everything, treasure Time.
