Luxury is any Jolt of Beauty or Wonder

In Luxurious lifestyle we  are not content to take up space and to buy what is sold to us–we have the need to see things, to understand art, and to drink deeply of the incredible beauty that technology has shown us exists outside of our home sphere.

Luxurious lifestyle is not only are we exponentially more aware of the value of quality, craftsmanship and culture, but we also have more access to these things than ever before. Luxurious lifestyle is to put it simply, we know too much for the old definition of unattainable luxury to apply. Luxury, in its new context (and in the very truest form of its vogue over the centuries) is the enjoyment of the best in life: the experience of beauty, knowledge, and humanity at their deepest and most inspiring. It is the sweetness of life. Luxury could be a sunset, a song, a moment of peace and satisfaction, a perfect cup of tea, a wonderful book or a poignant photograph in a local art gallery.

From this perspective, luxury is any jolt of beauty or wonder that reminds us to love the life we’re living, and to not simply live it, but to devour it gleefully and scoop up any crumbs that are left over–to not let a second of this fantastic existence go to waste.
