Achieving an 'old money' aesthetic might sound like an expensive endeavor, but I live by the 'buy one, buy well' philosophy. Back in April, I wrote about how you can make your home better without buying anything, and while I still limit my spending habit, I love the latest buzz around 'quiet luxury'

This interior design trend has not only taken over my Instagram feed, but also my decorating choices. It chimes perfectly with my penchant for only buying quality, timeless furniture and furnishings that will never date. I was sold!

Remember, room transformations don’t always have to be grand or expensive affairs. Instead, they can be slowly curated through minimal updates. All your home needs are a few thoughtful details to give it that five-star status that you have always desired. 

With this in mind, I thought it only right that I share with you what I am currently purchasing. If you love this aesthetic as much as I do, you're in for a treat. 


Is quiet luxury still a thing?

The term 'quiet luxury' is a relatively new coining but the style behind it is not. Quiet luxury is a classic style, that even if the name doesn't stick, that effortlessly chic look, both in fashion and interiors, will still be around for decades to come. 

Initially popular in the world of fashion, 'quiet luxury' offers a refreshing alternative to the chaos of modern life, allowing you to transform your home into a tranquil oasis without sacrificing sophistication or style. 

Now, more than ever, we seek comfort in our most intimate spaces; homes that exude comfort, serenity and warmth. We wish for pieces crafted from high-quality materials that will enhance our homes and our lives, while acknowledging the impact on the environment. It’s pleasing to know that the 'quiet luxury' interior design trend is here to give us just what we need.
