Quiet luxury is a term that has popped up a ton in fashion and home decor this year. It is hugely popular and it is no surprise that we here hope it continues into 2024. Trend is not the right term for this design movement, I believe it is a turn back to a time when homeowners and designers gave priority to the quality of a piece rather than its inherent trendiness.
Luxury is a tough word in design because we don’t all have millions, thousands or even hundreds to spend on our interiors. For us, quiet luxury is less about the price point of an item and more about the item’s roots and originality.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when aiming for a quietly luxurious interior.
Pallet is Important.
Black, white, beige, gray tend to be the foundation colours for this look, but any heritage colour can be included with restraint, understated elegance and an overall feeling of calm.
Quiet luxury celebrates uniqueness rather than commonality, so avoid mass-produced pieces (or at least pieces that look mass-produced). You can do this on a budget by sourcing consignment, secondhand and at flea markets.
Old is Gold
The search for one of a kind and precious pieces will become a new pastime if quiet luxury is on the horizon for you. Searching for items with both character and quality that you can keep in your home for a lifetime is the goal. With that in mind, we suggest opting for vintage where possible.
Original Art is It
Artwork does not have to be pricey, it just has to be original. There is no room for mass produced posters in our opinion. Art should feel collected over time and should tell a story. For us, quiet luxury is all about the art of shape and form paired with the senses.
Quiet luxury is timeless and classic. It eliminates pieces that nod to a specific era, trend or design style and focuses on quality and timelessness. For that reason, we are certain that quiet luxury is here to stay.
