'Quiet luxury' has established itself as one of the most talked-about design trends of 2023, but this aesthetic is far from a fad – especially with the (unintentional) support from Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine.  

In recent months, the quiet luxury trend has held a considerable influence over the way we think about decorating – with celebrity counterparts Cameron Diaz and Jenna Lyons also leading the movement in their abodes. 

The aesthetic is precisely what it sounds like – usually achieved using understated high-quality finishes such as beautiful marble veining and unlacquered gold. Both of these features make an appearance in the couple's Los Angeles kitchen. 

Behati and Adam have adorned their space with subtly veined white marble, stretching from their backsplash to their countertops, creating a clean, modern look that, experts say, is unlikely to fall out of favor. Paired with their gold oven hood, the couple's kitchen epitomizes the design trend seamlessly – and it hasn't gone unnoticed by New York-based decor expert Ivo Iv.

'Decorating with marble, with its eternal elegance, adds a refined touch to any room. In a kitchen, it transforms the space into a statement of high taste. Gold finishes, meanwhile, lend an air of opulence, creating an impression of luxury,' he comments.

Marble will always radiate elegance in a kitchen, while gold brings just the right amount of glamor. We love Behati and Adam's statement hood, but it is also possible to get the look with smaller accent pieces, too. 

'Cabinet handles, faucets, light fixtures, decor - each can be a nod to your golden touch. This blend of gold and marble can infuse your kitchen with a warm, glamorous vibe,' Ivo says.

In their home, Adam and Behati have opted for white marble, but as Ivo explains, we can achieve the quietly luxurious look with various other marble shades.

'Marble's range spans from pristine white to lush shades like emerald or black. You need to pick marble that sings in tune with your style and the rest of your kitchen,' he says. 'To keep things subtle, lean towards lighter marble with soft veining. But if you're daring, black marble with gold veins could be your ticket to a dramatic statement.' As hinted, the same stands for our gold hood and accents, too. 

'Gold finishes aren't all born equal. You can choose between brushed gold, antique gold, and rose gold – all with their unique charm. Reflect on your kitchen's color palette and choose a gold finish that fits. For example, if your cabinets have warm tones - a brushed gold finish could be just the thing to bring it all together.'
