For a mood of celestial decadence, create a dessert bar using a base of otherworldly textures in stormy palettes.
Use crystalline surfaces of luxurious natural stone and gilded edging, to display opulent dark chocolate dusted in gold.
For rustic celebrations we love the moody marbled surfaces of petrified or fossilized wood – timeworn textures set against the lush ambrosial abundance of red wine and richly pigmented fruits.
Styling tip – Play with tonal combinations of surfaces in similar palettes, and remember to display each surface at different heights to create depth and drama.
