We all desire luxury. It’s something we aspire to, something we strive for throughout our lives. Like everyone else, it’s likely that living in your luxury – whatever that means to you – is a dream of yours.
Luxury is difficult to define when you think about it. Dictionaries would describe it as a condition of abundance or a personal situation that involves enjoying life’s good yet unnecessary things. However, that doesn’t capture the whole gist of it. Luxury is more than just abundance
. Someone could have all the money in the world but still not evoke the feeling or appearance of luxury. Instead, luxury is an emotion. A feeling. A state.
Confusing? Don’t worry, we get it. People have dedicated their whole lives in pursuit of that ideal. Industries have been formed around that abstract concept. Taken from the outside, luxury is a complicated thing.
Here at Brittany, we have our own definition of luxury – and it involves you.
What is Luxury?
For us in Brittany, luxury is both a state and a process. Luxury is how you live: literally and figuratively.
Luxury is true enjoyment and satisfaction. It’s the feeling you get when you leisurely wake up in a comfortable bed and look around in your wonderfully designed room. Luxury is spending time with your children around the dinner table, listening to them talk about their day while you share nutritious meals. Luxury is those little moments when we realize we don’t need to worry about anything in the world.
Here at Brittany, we strive for every room, unit, and development to have the highest degree of perfection possible. From the geographic location to the architecture and engineering of our houses, down to the smallest details of the room – we created all these for the enjoyment of our homeowners and investors.
Luxury is luxury living. It may not always be a paradise where you spend every day living in absolute bliss, but it’s a home where you’re always reminded that there are beautiful things in life to appreciate.
It’s true that to attain a state of luxury is to fulfill your most significant potential, but it isn’t quite as simple as that. There are different stages to luxury before self-actualization.
There’s a type of luxury made especially to show off: loud and lavish, a kind for people to signal their worth. This type of luxury involves showy cars and over-the-top parties, designed so that people can say that they belong in this category of lifestyle.
Past that, though, is the luxury that you get for having high self-esteem. This kind of luxury doesn’t exist for others, but for one’s self – an internal proof that you’re worth something, that you’re different from the rest. This may come in the form of high honors, recognition from prestigious institutions, or similar awards.
Finally, there’s a type of luxury that’s, even more, evolved: luxury for self-actualization. Self-actualization can be simply defined as “being who you want to be,” or achieving your potential for greatness.
Here, Brittany plants its flag. By creating spaces where you can live in your luxury, Brittany is beyond self-affirmation, beyond peer-signaling. Instead, Brittany is creating a lifestyle, both a process and a state of luxury that our homeowners exist in.
Once you’ve lived in a Brittany home, nothing can stop you from being what you want to be.
More than allowing you to live in your luxury, Brittany luxury homes also make perfect economic sense.
With the rise of technology, anyone with the right skills can become a millionaire. These phenomena lead to rapid wealth creation in developing Asian markets, continually funneling value into the luxury goods industry. After all, newly rich people want to spend on luxury goods to announce their arrival to the scene.
Luxury goods consumers also tend to rely on their wealth instead of their income. This means that the luxury goods sector can remain stable because their primary consumers don’t rely on salaries and paychecks. They have vast accumulated wealth that will stay no matter the market conditions. In this way, the luxury goods industry manages to survive most market fluctuations.
Moreover, luxury goods always retain their value – and even increase their value over time because of scarcity. Luxury items will always be sought out, and buyers will always pay for them.
Not to mention, Brittany’s developments are high-value real estate properties. Since real estate is one of the most stable industries even during the pandemic, any interested investors can make sure that the dual forces of the real estate and luxury goods market are raising the value of their Brittany property over time.
