Quiet Luxury: The Interior Trend Taking Over Homes
In a world full of distractions, we’re ready to embrace the latest emerging interior design trend: quiet luxury. This captivating concept is all about understated elegance and bringing a sense of tranquillity and refinement to our living spaces.
In this blog, we’ll explore the essence of quiet luxury, sharing our top tips on how to incorporate this timeless trend into your home.
What is Quiet Luxury?
Quiet Luxury is a design philosophy that transcends traditional ideas of luxury by focusing on understated, mindful and timeless design elements. It celebrates the art of simplicity and refined living to create a sense of calm and harmony.
This trend embodies the belief that true luxury lies not in the grandeur of decor, but in the appreciation of craftsmanship, quality materials, and a balanced aesthetic.
How to Incorporate Quiet Luxury into Your Home
Incorporating quiet luxury into your home involves creating an elegant, serene, and comfortable space without unnecessary distractions. Combining high-quality materials with thoughtful design can instantly create a sense of tranquillity throughout your home.
Here are some tips to help you achieve a sense of this trend:
Opt for Neutral Colours
Choose a soft and neutral colour palette for your walls, furniture, and decor to cultivate calmness in your space.
Whites, creams, greys, and muted pastels create a tranquil atmosphere and allow different textures and materials to take more of a focal point. For instance, you could opt for white bedding within your bedroom or inject touches of subtle greys and creams with neutral-toned throws in the lounge.
Choose High-Quality Materials
Invest in decor made from high-quality, natural materials such as wood, leather, stone, cotton, linen and wool. These materials can be put centre stage through various pieces, such as wooden dining furniture and bedroom pieces, or Egyptian cotton bedding. These materials exude luxury and add a tactile element to your space.
Focus on Minimalism & Simplicity
One of the most essential aspects of quiet luxury is embracing a minimalist design approach with clean lines and uncluttered spaces. For a luxury living room feel, avoid excessive ornamentation and instead opt for a few well-selected statement pieces, such as an eye-catching piece of wall art or sculpture.
Maximise Natural Light
Maximise natural light by using sheer curtains or blinds that allow sunlight to filter through. Natural light creates an airy and inviting ambience that complements the idea of quiet luxury.
If you often experience interrupted sleep due to natural light waking you in the early hours, you could pair sheer drapery with heavyweight curtains. This combination will ensure quality sleep while still harnessing the soft light that sheer curtains allow to permeate into the room throughout the day.
Include Soft Textures
Combining different textures can instantly make a room feel more cosy and three-dimensional. Incorporate soft textures through plush rugs, snug throws and cushions made from luxurious fabrics. These textured accessories will add warmth and comfort to your space.
Consider your Lighting
To promote a sense of calmness, opt for soft and warm lighting fixtures that create a cosy atmosphere.
Consider installing dimmers to adjust the light intensity level according to the mood. And when it comes to creating a tranquil evening routine, lower light exposure has been proven to help you unwind before bed, so why not ditch the big light and invest in some stylish lamps for your bedside tables?
Embrace Nature with Indoor Plants
Bring nature indoors with the simple addition of a few houseplants. Plants add a touch of luxury and a splash of colour to your surroundings, but they also purify the air and promote a sense of relaxation, helping you achieve a better night’s sleep.
