Many have always dreamed of living in New York, and of course the only way of living in Manhattan, is living in style! Start with a neutral colour palette and complement that with accents of grey, chocolate, and silver. This will create the ideal backdrop for luxurious fabrics, finishes, furniture and artwork. Silk cushions, fur throws, and animal skins add a touch of opulence when placed against velvet upholstery, leather occasional pieces, dark timber and reflective metal, mirrored and lacquered surfaces. If you have the space, decorate on a grand scale with accessories such as oversized mirrors and artworks, giant crystal or nickel lamps, imposing sculptures and chunky artefacts. Be sure to select pieces that make a statement of good design and employ a consultant if necessary.
