Quiet Luxury Design Is on the Rise—Here’s How to Bring It Home

What is the quiet luxury home decor trend?

In fashion, quiet luxury is all about achieving an luxurious look that's chic and timeless without looking like you put too much though into it. Wardrobe basics like t-shirts, blazers, and jeans made with high-quality materials paired with simple gold or silver jewelry are staples in a quiet luxury style. Followers of the trend generally avoid bright colors and bold prints, as well as lots of accessories. When it comes to quiet luxury in home design, the same principles apply.

“Quiet luxury in a home is, essentially, the use of elevated basics," says Lori Shaw, owner and principal designer of Lori Shaw Interiors. "The vibe is more interesting than minimalism, a focus on refinement over loud and bold."

Think clean and thoughtfully curated interiors, neutral tones, and high-quality materials like real wood, marble, and cashmere linens. In short, this style is about investing in quality pieces that will remain a staple in your home for years to come.

How to Implement Quiet Luxury Decor at Home

While the name may sound intimidating, the good news is that this trend isn't about spending a ton or investing in expensive items. As long as you understand the basic principles of quiet luxury, you can implement this kind of decor in your own home by switching pieces out over time. These are some of the key points to keep in mind.

Less Is More

To achieve an interior that feels effortlessly elegant and luxurious, it’s important to keep it simple and remember that less is more.

Focus on High-Quality Materials

High-quality, timeless staples are key in the quiet luxury trend. Rather than buying trendy, high-end furniture or accessories with flashy brand-name logos, choose pieces that are made from quality materials. Just like quiet luxury in fashion, the idea is to build your space with fewer, but more high-quality and versatile pieces.

Choose Muted Colors and a Neutral Palette

Quiet luxury is known for favoring a neutral color palette and muted hues. Don’t worry, it’s not a revival of the white-on-white trend we’ve seen over and over again. Instead, warm neutrals like off-white, taupe, and beige are often seen paired with nature-inspired colors like sage green or warm, muted blues.

Lighting Is Key

Good lighting will make any space feel more luxurious, and plenty of natural light is ideal for the quiet luxury trend, along with thoughtfully designed interior lighting.
