This trend is all about handpicking select, opulent pieces and placing them against a minimalist backdrop.

A monochrome colour palette combines the idea of sophistication and simplicity perfectly.  Experiment with a scale that ranges from a dark petrol blue or charcoal grey down to a pure white or tinted cotton.

When it comes to textiles, chose sumptuous furs and suedes to add warmth and contrast with your sleek, minimal surroundings.  Leather is also a must but don’t go for shiny and new. The more worn and matt the better!

For any additional accessories, such as side tables or lamps, think sculptural. Go for smooth, polished lines. Remember simplicity is key!
