How to get the luxe loft style from the high street

Create some urban hipster cool with mismatched industrial-style furniture and some luxe highlights

Keep the backdrop simple with white or pale grey walls and bare floor boards to mimic the look of an uber-trendy New York Loft apartment. Group your favourite black and white prints for a unique display in a feature wall.

How to get the look: Keep the room pared back with unfussy pieces of furniture. The key materials are salvage style wood or exposed wood grain; tan or aged dark brown leather; zinc or iron and hints of concrete. Add a little luxe to the look with textures such as velvet or wool, marble accessories and smart brass lighting.
