24 Quiet Luxury Ideas to Shop Now
The Quiet Luxury trend has been taking over fashion and home decor. Sophia Richie’s wedding started the Quiet Luxury movement toward elegant and understated fashion, and now the trend can be seen in homes.
Placing the utmost importance on creating a serene atmosphere, the key to getting the look right is to tap neutral colours and choose timeless pieces that never go out of style.
If you’re looking to create a peaceful and luxurious vibe in your home, then read on for ten tips on how to achieve the Quiet Luxury look.
1 – Choose a Neutral Palette: The first step in achieving the Quiet Luxury look is to choose a neutral colour palette. Think soft, muted colours like beige, taupe, and grey or if you prefer more colour, look to moody blues and greens. Choosing key pieces like rugs or wallpaper are the best ways to bring in a neutral colour pallete to create a calming atmosphere and provide a perfect backdrop for more luxurious elements. Neutral doesn’t mean boring, though. We are big fans of wallpaper murals like our Talbany Mono Wallpaper Wall Mural or our Rye Natural Rug because they offer a neutral palette with sophisticated designs that add interest and depth.
2 – Invest in High-Quality Bedding: The easiest way to get the Quiet Luxury look instantly is to invest in high-quality bedding. Think plush, soft comforters, sheets and duvets. Getting the right bedding is essential to a good night’s sleep but also feels like a daily treat when you slip into your sheets at the end of the day or wake up every morning.
3 – Add Metallic Accents: Metallic accents are an excellent way to add a touch of luxury to your decor without going overboard. Think gold, silver, or bronze accents on your furniture, lighting fixtures, or decor items. Wallpaper with metallic is an unexpected way to add a bit of glamour to your space while adding a glow that is undeniably elegant.
4 – Incorporate Natural Elements: One of the hallmarks of the Quiet Luxury trend is the use of natural elements. Think wood, stone, and other natural materials. These elements add an organic, earthy feel to your decor, which can be very calming.
5 – Keep It Simple The key to achieving the Quiet Luxury look is to keep things simple. Avoid clutter and excessive decor items. Instead, focus on a few carefully chosen pieces that add elegance and sophistication to your space. We love our Redbrook Wood Panel Wallpaper collection because it offers the sophistication of a wood-panelled room but with easy-to-install and easy to remove wallpaper. It looks just as elegant in a downtown New York loft as it does in a farmhouse.
6 – Choose Timeless Table Top Pieces: When selecting glassware and dinnerware, avoid trendy items that will quickly go out of style. Instead, invest in pieces that will stand the test of time and continue to look great for years to come. Artisan-style dishes or mouth-blown glassware never goes out of style.
7 – Use Plenty of White: Go for an all-white monochromatic look for any room in the house. It looks luxe and is essential to creating a calming and serene atmosphere. For a modern, Quiet Luxury twist, look for monochromatic white bed linens but with elevated details such as embroidery, eyelet, lace or quilting to add texture and interest.
8 – Incorporate Artwork: Artwork can add a touch of elegance to your decor. Choose pieces that are calming and soothing, and have a sophisticated subject matter, such as landscapes or floral art. Artwork in soft, muted tones will also bring home the Quiet Luxury style.
9 – Add Texture: Texture is an important element of the Quiet Luxury trend. Our favourite way to incorporate texture is through the use of fabric, wallpaper, and decor items. You can’t go wrong with a timeless ornate damask in calming colours if you want to get the Quiet Luxury look right. The Apolline Dove Grey Wallpaper is the perfect mix of luxury and the simplicity of good design while our super soft knitted throw blankets made from 100% cotton look elegant in any room or draped over a bed.
10 – Traditional Is The New Luxe: Quiet Luxury often means traditional when it comes to home decor. It’s about pieces that have been collected over time that always look great. The Bramble Floral Bedding is one of the best-loved signature designs from the Laura Ashley archives, and it still offers a fresh, tranquil update to any bedroom. Our Striped Wallpaper in Jade Green is another look that transcends time and always looks great in a space when you want a serene Quiet Luxury look.
11 – Don’t Forget the Details Finally, it’s essential not to overlook the details. Pay attention to the small things like making sure your paint matches your wallpaper, the subtle translation of a weathered antique look on your rug, or even opting for stylish storage and organization for items in your closet. These small details can make a big difference in the overall look and feel of your space when it comes to Quiet Luxury.
