As an interior designer and art dealer, I love a bit of luxury, glamour and opulence. My design philosophy has British roots and a signature of metallics and layering. The living room is one of the most important hubs in your home; a space to relax and entertain. It should also be an extension of your personality. So what better way to show off your style than with a whole host of luxurious and glamorous furnishings and accessories? Here are some of my favourite style picks and I hope they will help you create a living space that oozes style and elegance.
