One good thing about TV series—aside from giving us a well-deserved break from work or school, is that it gives us design ideas for our spaces too! Would you believe that you can also find decorating and styling tips when watching SUITS? The engrossing show is equal parts drama, comedy, and suave—with each episode giving us a peek into the lives of hotshot lawyers and interesting cases. Aside from following the lives of Mike Ross and Harvey Specter, we also can't help but dream about Harvey's sleek apartment that overlooks New York City.

If you're also a fan of the legal drama and you've always wanted a modern and minimalist space, here are decorating ideas worth checking out:

Furnish with modern pieces

The key to copying this sleek style is to get pieces that sport modern, clean lines in smooth finish. Cabinets in ducco finish, tables with slim metal legs, seating pieces in plain leather and floor lamps in brushed steel keep things smart and straightforward.

Stick to a muted color palette

The reason why Harvey’s apartment looks so clean and sleek is because it uses a simple yet elegant neutral color scheme that is easy on the eyes. Try playing with the colors dark browns, grays, and whites.

Add a surprising touch of color

If you find this style too “stiff,” add a few splashes of color in small doses. For more character, you may also add a handful of quirky pieces. Visit Dimensione for pieces and accessories that you can purchase for your space. — Sunshine Selga-Funa
