Ralph Rucci & using your fine things

One of my guilty pleasures is to read design books and mags before lights out. I love it! I escape into the beautiful world of design before my dreams. It’s the best! It’s like a holiday every night. So last night, I was reading So Chic and I found what Fashion Designer Ralph Rucci said interesting and directly applicable to everyday life in the world of Design. Actually, I found many things interesting about his outlook, but you’ll have to get the book to find out. The one thing I like to translate across the board is the notion of using fine things. They were created to be enjoyed.

“There is a conception in the country about luxurious things, that we have to save them for a time that’s right. But an object is only luxurious if you allow it to be, if you use it. When you live with beautiful things, you stimulate your mind, you enjoy life a little bit more.”

-Ralph Rucci

So tonight when you’re preparing for an event, bring out the best. If you’re have a weekend in, find a reason to use your silver or china. Break out your 20-year-old scotch or  10-year-old burgundy and use the beautiful tumblers like they were made for you. Burn the candle that smells so yummy, but it’s too nice to use. Wear the earrings you’ve been dying to wear. Pull out your grandfathers  ornate trunk or watch and wear it. Enjoy it!
