 Laid-back luxe - How to achieve the style in your home

In recent years, the interior design world has been buzzing with the concept of laid-back luxe. This aesthetic is all about creating an elegant, sophisticated space that is still comfortable, and relaxed space. It's about combining high-end materials, textures, and finishes with a sense of ease and comfort.

At its core, laid-back luxe is all about striking a balance. It's about finding a way to make a space feel luxurious and polished without feeling stuffy or overly formal. It's about creating a beautiful and livable home, where you can entertain guests and unwind after a long day.

If you're interested in bringing this style into your own home, read on for some tips and inspiration.

  1. Choose High-Quality Materials

When it comes to creating a laid-back luxe interior, the materials you choose are key. Opt for natural, high-quality materials like marble, leather, and wood. These materials will add a sense of luxury and sophistication to your space while still feeling approachable and comfortable.

For example, you could choose a marble coffee table for your living room or a leather sofa in your study. These pieces will add a touch of elegance to your space without feeling too formal or stuffy.Home of Jo Malone(Image: Home of Jo Malone)


  1. Incorporate Texture

Texture is another important element of laid-back luxe design. By incorporating a variety of textures into your space, you can create visual interest and add depth to your design.

Consider adding a shaggy wool rug or a chunky knit throw to your living room. These cosy textures will make your space feel inviting and comfortable, while still maintaining a sense of sophistication.

  1. Embrace Neutral Tones

Neutral tones are a hallmark of laid-back luxe design. They create a calming, serene environment that feels both elegant and relaxed.

Incorporate shades of beige, grey, and white into your space, and layer them to create depth and interest. You could choose a beige sofa with white throw pillows or a grey area rug with white trim.

  1. Mix It Up

Laid-back luxe design is all about mixing high-end pieces with more affordable, accessible items. By pairing a designer sofa with a vintage rug or side table, you can create a curated and effortless space.

Mixing pieces also allows you to create a space that reflects your personal style. By incorporating items that have sentimental value or that you've collected over time, you can create a home that feels uniquely yours.

  1. Add Statement Lighting

Lighting is an often-overlooked element of interior design, but it can have a huge impact on the look and feel of a space. When it comes to laid-back luxe design, statement lighting is a must.

Consider adding a dramatic chandelier to your dining room or a sculptural table lamp to your living room. These pieces will add a sense of drama and elegance to your space while still feeling approachable and comfortable.

  1. Focus on Comfort

At the heart of laid-back luxe design is a focus on comfort. Your space should feel inviting and comfortable, with plenty of cosy textures and soft furnishings.

Invest in comfortable seating, like a plush sofa or a pair of armchairs. Layer soft throw pillows and blankets throughout your space to create a cosy, inviting environment.

  1. Don't Overdo It

Finally, it's important to remember that less is often more when it comes to laid-back luxe design. Avoid cluttering your space with too many decorative items or knick-knacks.

Instead, focus on creating a few key focal points in your space, like a stunning piece of artwork or a sculptural side table. By keeping your space clean and uncluttered, you can create
