Do you crave space?
When it comes to homes, luxury, apparently, isn’t just about having your own vanity. It’s about having separate bedrooms and walk-in closets, too. At least that’s what my friend Catharine and I learned last Thursday night as we toured luxury homes, thanks to Midwest Home Magazine.
Our first thought: That’s odd. Why would you sleep separately? Then we considered the possibilities. No shared covers. No snooze button repeatedly hit. No sounds that weren’t yours, like book pages turning or a rumbling snore.
Because all of us crave a safe place, and a place isn’t always safe when another inhabits it. It’s the small things that can unnerve you after a hectic day: Where did he move my car keys? Why did she leave her shoes where I can trip?
Living together can be stressful. Matt and I joke about building townhouses on our new lot that are connected by a sky way for our kids to pass between us. We’d each have a sanctuary then, our version of couples’ therapy.
What do you think? Does space help create intimacy? Or with space do you lose intimacy?
Coming soon, as a preferred blogger I will be doing a product review for CSN Stores about an item for our new home. Check out their over 200 specialty shops for your housewares.
