Cool Metallics are the Hottest Trend

 Mixing Metals

Whether it’s incorporated into furniture, hardware, lighting, accessories or wall treatments, metallics can bring a spark of interest to any room. These shining objects shouldn’t take over the space and make it feel cold, but rather they should be spread out and used tastefully to bring some edge to your design.

Metallics draw the eye in and are a great way to enhance lighting in the room. They are also a perfect juxtaposition to fabrics, softer materials and organic shapes and textures. Whether used in moderation or abundance, these shiny touches of style can absolutely transform a room.

Also, don’t be afraid to mix metal finishes. There are plenty of metallics to choose from, including brass, antiqued bronze, brushed nickel, copper, chrome and gold. And not every metallic has to be super bright – there are low-sheen treatments as well.

Be adventurous; go for metallic wallpaper, accessorize with stunning silver, pick out shimmering bronze pillows and curtains, mix warm wood floors with sparkling gold accents. The possibilities are endless.
