Don’t be afraid to mix metalsOne of my favourite palettes to work with is black, white, silver and gold. I usually match furniture with one metal, and then accessorise with the other. Mixing metals is a way to subtly add substance to a room’s look. It’s a clever way to give a room character without adding clutter or patterns.

Larger pieces of furniture are keyTo keep the lines clean I prefer to use minimal pieces of larger furniture rather than many smaller items. I find that too many small pieces can cause a space to feel chaotic, and although some Art Deco looks are all about delight in chaos I don’t think it works in all modern environments. This approach also offers an excellent way to make a small room appear larger, and ultimately it creates a more polished and relaxed feel to the overall finish.

The couches in Michael and Andrew's Gramercy Park home were originally plaid silk taffeta with two seat cushions, so the pair had them reupholstered in navy blue and made single-cushion. And that gilded mirror was originally about three feet taller than it is now, with new glass—Michael and Andrew were having trouble finding the right item for that spot above the mantel, so they had its frame cut down and fit with prettily mottled antique mirror glass to get the look right.
