If you’re an avid reader of Dukes Avenue, you’ll know that we’re all about inspiring you to live your best and most luxurious life, in whatever way that means to you. Many people think luxury and wealth are one and the same. The truth, however, is that luxury is very much personal, and one reader’s idea of luxury will be completely different to another’s.

To challenge your idea of luxury, we’ve carefully curated a list of our favourite luxury quotes to both inspire and stimulate your creativity, and perhaps by the end of it, you may start to think about luxury a little differently. Through these inspirational quotes, sayings and life lessons, we hope to convince readers that luxury has nothing to do with net worth and everything to do with self-worth, and the freedom to do whatever brings you happiness.

To make things even easier, we’ve divided the quotes into the different areas of life where you may be seeking a little decadence: whether that’s travel, style or just general luxury life quotes, we’ve got you covered!
