For me, nothing beats my favorite perfume for a hint of luxury that lasts &mdash even if I'm standing, sweaty from walking to work. At home, that feeling comes from my Garnet Hill linens, which are delightfully crisp. In this economy, and in the cozy fall season, small luxuries like this make us feel rich. What is your small luxury?
Another luxury of mine is my Jasper Conran glossy white china, which I use every day. What is yours? Fresh flowers from the market on Fridays? A Saturday latte and a walk? Antique tea cups for afternoon tea?
Whatever it is, I believe these small things, even though material, help us all feel more blessed, refined and luxurious — even if we're eating PB&Js on our fine bone china!
