Luxe couches, cabinets and dinner tables will always be a great addition to your home, but it’s often the smaller expensive-looking details that make the biggest difference to your space (let’s call it ‘quiet luxury’, but for your home). And no – they don’t have to cost a fortune! From trinket dishes to candlesticks, there are certain home accessories that make your space feel more considered, curated and elegant 

I’m convinced that the most delicate pieces of decor can make your home feel more expensive, and the best home decor stores are full of little luxe accents and accessories to elevate the feel of your decor. But finding luxe-looking decor for less is easier said than done, so I’ve done all the hard browsing work for you and found the most expensive-looking home accessories – and the best thing is that everything in this list is under $100!

Which details make decor look more expensive?

There are a few key features to look out for when aiming for a luxe decor look. Elegant organic shapes and materials are always a safe bet! Stoneware – particularly smooth matte ceramic, marble, and porcelain pieces – can all look really elevated, and doesn’t have to cost a ton, as the pieces above prove.

Luxe accents like gold hardware and delicate hand painted detail will never fail to add a luxe touch to your decor – just look at the chopping board set and seashell dishes as examples! Eye-catching silhouettes and textures (like that of the shapely Lulu and Georgia bowl above) are also easy ways to make simple home accessories feel more expensive. Finally, rich colors like deep navy make a statement while still looking expensive, or if you're a fan of muted shades then matte cream and black finishes are a failsafe luxe-looking combo.
