The Quiet Luxury Aesthetic for Children's Rooms

An effortlessly stylish look, that exudes confidence and luxury… But without the price tag.

Quiet Luxury is one of the biggest interior trends of the moment. It’s inspired by creating a thrown together scheme that looks expensive and considered, yet without the need for forking out on lots of new, high end items, or trying too hard. 

We all know the hints and tricks on how to make the rest of our homes look their best, but when it comes to our kids’ rooms, how do we embrace this look to create a space that is unique to our children, yet cohesive with the rest of our homes?

One of the benefits of the Quiet Luxury style, is that the result is a soft and gentle room design that creates a calm environment for children to sleep and relax in. 

As a designer and manufacturer of premium children’s beds, we love the Quiet Luxury aesthetic, so here are our top tips on how to create the look for your own child’s room:

  1. Seek out furniture made with high quality materials.

High quality needn’t always mean high price point, however, you do often get what you pay for when it comes to furniture. So how do you know how good the material quality is?

 Research which timbers have been used to create the product, and ask questions about the management of the timber during the production process. Selecting furniture and beds with high quality materials means that the furniture items will both look more substantial in their room, and will last a whole lot longer too.


  1. Look for signs of quality craftsmanship.

When searching for beds and furniture for children, check out the manufacturer’s websites, and try to find out how a product is made. For example, has the wood been nailed or glued together? Perhaps it has mortice and tenon joints? These are traditional joints that create a far superior structure, and therefore increase the durability of a product.

Perhaps the product features some routered timbers, or turned legs and finials? If a brand or manufacturer doesn’t make reference to the manufacturing process, it is a good idea to ask questions.

  1. Speak directly with the children's bedroom manufacturers

Sometimes third party retailers will buy beds and furniture from the manufacturer or brand, and act as a vendor on their behalf.

However, if you have the ability to do so, It often proves more fruitful to be able to speak directly with those who handle, design and create the product.

This way you’ll have more accurate and specific information with which to make your selections.


  1. Avoid prints and patterns

When it comes to textiles and fabrics, look for high quality materials such as linen or wool, and choose highly textured options to add depth, interest and detail in a room.


  1. Be inspired by nature

When it comes to using colour in a room. To create an elegant, luxurious look with minimal effort, warm neutrals are a good option. Alternatively, look to nature for earthy toned hues such as Olive Green, Clay, Slate Grey and Rust for a sophisticated yet understated look.


  1. Mix and match

One of the key aspects of this trend is that the overall aesthetic shouldn’t look too forced. The good news is this means that pairing a brand new quality bed with Granny’s old chest of drawers will go a long way in creating the Quiet Luxury aesthetic. Seek out vintage furniture, and pieces with olde worlde charm for a thrown together, yet upmarket look.

In summary, the Quiet Luxury trend embraces everything on a softly softly, approach. This means no unexpected prints, no loud colours, and a lack of motifs, in favour of timeless bedrooms that can be both modern and traditional in style.
