THREE WAYS TO ADD LUXURY TOUCHES TO YOUR HOME

DSC_7591

While we have done quite a bit of remodeling to our home (complete kitchen remodel, new floors through out, and a small guest bath upgrade, knocked down a small wall, and new paint ), we are done with any more high cost upgrades.  When we purchased the house we purchased it knowing it was going to be a temporary home and we would eventually want to upgrade to our “forever or long tern home”. So all of the upgrades we did were absolutely necessary in order to make our home current ( See this post to get the idea & this was before we redid all of the floors, THE HORROR!) There is nothing else we can do to it that will get us our money back. So now that all the big stuff is done, I would still love to add some permanant luxury touches like, grasscloth wallpaper in the master and upgrading the carpet in the two bedrooms for example, it just doesn’t make sense to do so because buyers in this price range aren’t looking for those additional luxury touches. Instead I focus on adding luxury touches with my decor.  If you are currently renting, or in a similar situation as us, keep reading.

I love the idea of having a stand out vase or sculptural piece. I love to add these element to a focal area like, the kitchen island. This Dora Maar bowl/vase by Jonathan Adler is one of my favorite pieces. It’s always a topic of conversation when we have guests and I love that it can work in any any room. Sometimes i’ll move it to my coffee table, or fill it with lemons and limes and place it on our bar. Where ever you put it, it will stand out.

Candles are always a good way. I think having a signature scent for your home is the equivalent of having a signature perfume. Diptyque candles are my favorite. These little candles are so strong, they fill my entire living area and burn for a long time. I also like these because not only are the smells luxurious, but they display well among any color scheme  because of the chic white and black design. During the spring/summer we burn Fig and during fall/winter we burn pomander.

The guest powder room has to be one of my most favorite ways to add luxury touches to my home. Not only is having clean, soft towels available for your guest important, but I have found that a lot of people forget about hand soap and hand lotion. I used to put out the cute, bed bath and beyond/body shop soaps or some set I would pick up at my local store, but every time we hosted a gathering at least one guy would come up to me ask if I had regular soap/lotion for them to use. It never crossed my mind that men HATE fruity/girly smelling soaps. LOL. I searched for a long time to find something neutral and just fell in love with Aesop resurrection line. Now it is on the super pricey side for hand soap & lotion, but since it goes in our  powder room, it pretty much only gets used when we have guests so it does last us a long time making it worth the investment. Not to mention our guests always comment how much the love it because it smells delicious, doesn’t dry your hands out and the hand balm is sooooo good. Sometimes after I have been cleaning and using harsh chemicals, I sneaks some.
