LOOK: 4 Essential Luxury Home Items and Where to Get Them

From classy dinnerware to luxurious decor and home products, these luxury finds are a must-have in every stylish home.

We are once again told to stay in our homes because of the threat of the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus. But in order to look at the brighter side of things, how can we make our space more pleasant and positive for everyone?

For me, it was cooking and bringing the fine dining experience to our home, especially since trying different dishes is one of the many things I miss about traveling. Another stress reliever can be, of course, beautifying your home space. Plus, making sure that our home is clutter-free and a joy to stay in will also help with our state of mind, too. 

Here are some items that are making our pandemic life brighter and more positive:

Nice Plates from Casa Juan (IG: @casajuanmnl)

I found joy in cooking and plating my food. It has become both therapeutic and a form of self-expression—that is, serving my family (forgive me for boasting) restaurant-level food.

My friend and fellow entrepreneur Michelle Adsense-Fontalera’s Casa Juan plates have become the constant companion of my culinary adventure. Plus, these Pakudos plates in red and blue are so versatile that I can pair them with other plates from my collection.

I am also super excited about her Rajo Laurel Collection, which they just launched. These Filipino-inspired and designed plates should be part of any platita’s collection because their unique design showcases Filipino artistry in the most beautiful way possible.

World-class Ingredients from Dough and Grocer (IG: @doughandgrocer)

I was recently introduced to Dough and Grocer when I guested on Rappler’s Kitchen 143 with fellow OneMega.com contributor Michelle Aventajado. The shop offers vine-ripened tomatoes from Spain, Echire Croissants, Fine De Claire Oysters by David Herve, and Angelina Hot chocolate from France. Plus, they even have Japanese cult favorites!

Being able to enjoy these products makes our longing for travel less and it keeps us inside the house.

Stylish and Efficient Home Products from Dyson Purifier + Formaldehyde (IG: @dyson)

We have been in this staying-at-home situation for almost two years. Thus, it’s time to invest in products that both look good and do the job. Bulky air cleaners not only take up lots of space but can also not match your well-curated space. But this air cleaner is different.

I love the new Dyson Purifier + Formaldehyde because it’s an air purifier and air multiplier. What’s more, it now comes with an added feature. Yes, it also removes formaldehyde, which is emitted by our newly-painted or bought furniture.

Some people may think that a Dyson fan is just for show. But when they showed us how efficient this new technology is in keeping the bacteria, dust, and virus inside the filter, I’ve officially become a Dyson fan! No pun intended.

Although the price tag can be a turn-off for some, high-end air cleaners generally go for around P25K to P45K, while fans nowadays are sometimes P10K to P15K a pop. So when you do the math, it comes out the same or more cost-effective—plus visually aesthetic, even.

Making Chores Easier with the Dyson Micro 1.5Kg Cordless Vacuum (IG: @dyson)

During the pandemic, a lot of us parents have used the time to teach our kids life skills. This includes creating the habit of doing chores. I am a firm believer in tough love, but not to the point that I wouldn’t provide the equipment to make their lives easier.

So, if you have smaller kids, start them young by having them clean their rooms or work area. This new cordless vacuum from Dyson is lighter and more agile, which allows kids to clean easily and effectively. Usually, I tell my kids to think of it as painting or coloring the floors—they need to do it line by line so that they don’t miss a spot. I also like that they have attachments that allow kids also to clean their study area.

I know we are all experiencing pandemic fatigue, and the finish line is yet to be seen on the horizon. With that being said, let us appreciate and be grateful for the bright side of things. We can do this!
