at home with Alfresco

Creating a sophisticated room is simple with a palette of black, white, taupe and grey. Black and white will lift the room and give contrast to grey and taupe. Starting with such a neutral colour palette will allow you to add lots of texture, natural elements and embellishment. For example, use heavily textured cushions on a linen sofa or mix in cushions with sparkle or light reflecting fabric. If your fabrics are neutral and you want to continue with a warm, textured room, choose timber furniture which will give it depth. The beautiful Chinese elm furniture you see here is full of character and by choosing accessories like marble, coral and anything with a metallic finish it will keep your room feeling sophisticated and elegant.
