Subtle elegant looks like 'quiet luxury,' 'old money' and 'stealth wealth' have been trending in interior design since early 2023 and we don't see signs of the style fading anytime soon. In fact, we couldn't help but notice that the paneled walls in Jennifer Lopez's warm minimalist bedroom perfectly evoke the quiet luxury trend. Though she's made clear she's still Jenny from the Block, JLo has no problem with the look of this style inspired by the aesthetics of generational wealth.
Jennifer's joint Instagram post with friend Loren Ridinger shows the two women dancing on Jennifer's bed amongst her elegant bedroom decor. We can see Jennifer's white bedding, her natural linen headboard, and her off-white paneled walls, solidifying the quiet luxury trend in her space.

Reena Ravi, a Seattle-based interior designer states: 'We associate wall paneling with quality craftsmanship and with wealthy homes of the past. Therefore, choosing paneled walls helps add a sense of luxury and refinement to your space.' She continues, 'Panelled walls are a popular design choice as paneling adds dimension and texture to walls, making a room seem more interesting and more elegant.'

Mohammad Ahmed, interior designer and home expert at The Home Guidance continues on wall paneling stating: 'Wall paneling has a strong historical and aesthetic appeal.' He adds, 'When used judiciously, paneling can introduce a calming, grounded element to sleeping spaces. In JLo's bedroom, the creams, beiges, and light grays make for a versatile look with the paneled walls.'
