Quiet Luxury: More Than Just a Trend

The concept of "quiet luxury" has been much talked about in the beauty and fashion industry lately but is now also evident in emerging interior design trends. Quiet luxury represents a shift away from ostentatious displays of wealth and opulence toward a more subtle, refined, and understated approach to luxury.

Whilst it might be a relatively new concept, it perfectly encapsulates our design principles at Saskia Kate Interiors.

Quiet luxury has been an emerging trend in interiors over the last year or so, but for me it is a design principle that underpins our approach at Saskia Kate Interiors. Quiet luxury transcends specific styles and is equally applicable whatever your design preferences. At the heart of quiet luxury is the emphasis on investment pieces that are the foundational elements of timeless design.

  1. Simplicity and Minimalism: Quiet luxury embraces minimalism, where less is more. It emphasises clean lines, uncluttered spaces, and a restrained colour palette to create a sense of calm and tranquillity.

  2. High-Quality Materials: A focus on premium, natural materials like marble, wood, leather, and silk is essential in quiet luxury design. These materials not only provide a sense of luxury but also age beautifully over time.

  3. Timeless Elegance: The design prioritises timeless aesthetics over passing trends. Classic design elements and furnishings are favoured, often with a modern twist, to create spaces that won't look outdated in a few years.

  4. Subtle Colour Palette: Neutral and muted colour schemes dominate quiet luxury interiors, with an emphasis on earthy tones, soft greys, and gentle pastels. These colours create a soothing atmosphere.

  5. Customisation: Tailor-made and bespoke elements, such as custom furniture and artisanal craftsmanship, are integral to quiet luxury interiors. These unique pieces add a sense of exclusivity and personalization to the space.

  6. Attention to Detail: The devil is in the details when it comes to quiet luxury. Intricate detailing, fine finishes, and well-thought-out design elements contribute to the overall sense of refinement.

  7. Comfort and Functionality: While aesthetics are crucial, the comfort and functionality of the space are not compromised. High-quality furnishings and materials are chosen for their usability and comfort.

  8. Subdued Lighting: Lighting plays a significant role in quiet luxury design. Soft, ambient lighting, as well as well-placed accent lighting, creates a cosy and inviting atmosphere.

  9. Art and Artefacts: Art plays a vital role in adding depth and character to the space. Whether it's original artwork or carefully curated artefacts, they should be chosen with a discerning eye for quality.

  10. Sustainability: Many quiet luxury designs incorporate eco-friendly and sustainable materials and practices. This reflects a growing awareness of the environment and a desire to align luxury with responsible choices.

Quiet luxury in interior design is all about creating spaces that exude sophistication and opulence through understated, tasteful choices. It focuses on quality, timelessness, and comfort rather than opulence for the sake of ostentation and appeals to those who appreciate a sense of refinement and tranquillity in their living spaces. At Saskia Kate Interiors, we believe that quiet luxury is not just a trend but a timeless design principle that shapes every aspect of our work.
