When smaller is better – house downsizing

May 30, 2009

Is it me or is everything getting smaller?

I know this a luxury blog but luxury no longer equals HUGE. Lavish displays of extravagant wealth are no longer de rigueur. You can be opulent and tastefully small.

I have watched, with our current market conditions, as homeowners are downsizing in record numbers. People still want to be surrounded by beautiful things – just not so much of them. Maybe there is too much of a good thing.

I have also watched people who had extraordinary home settle for something sweet and simple. When the world around you is teetering, just a bit, it is good to have something that is warm and cozy and feels like home.

In the end, this may not be a bad thing at all. Luxury in a box, a delicious, delightful and small box. I think I may try it myself.
