Metallic Decor: Inspiration for Your HomeJune 12, 2017
Shine, shimmer, gleam, and glimmer…want some for your home? Inviting in metallic decor is a super-simple way to infuse a gorgeous, glamorous, and oh-so-edgy look into your home. Metallic accents are perfect for making a statement without compromising the established comfort and personal styling of your home. So, how do you pull off a beautiful look with metal finishes? And which metals should you use? Our designers have ideas and inspiration that’ll put you on the road to success when designing with metallic decor in your home. Take a look…
Copper is quickly becoming one of the trendiest metals around. Its warm and faintly rosy tone brings a sense of softness to its wondrous metallic sheen. Infusing copper into your home decor can be as simple as adding a few copper Moscow Mule mugs, vases, or even pillows throughout your space. Small accents like these easily make a big splash of style, and you can swap them out and change them up whenever you want. If you’re looking for lasting elements, copper faucets and hardware “pop” with incredible beauty, and pendant lights over an island or table are absolutely stunning.
Can metal be mellow? It sure can, and you don’t have to look any further than brass to achieve subtle charm when adding metallic decor. Antique brass accents are hot ticket items in the design world this year, and it’s no wonder. Their presence in a space sends out whispers of history and nostalgia. They blend beautifully with other elements of decor, and they draw the eye in slowly.
There’s just a depth and warmth to brass that truly captivates. You can sprinkle your spaces with small brass figurines, or try loading up a vintage brass tray with favorite jewelry in a bedroom or eclectic items on a dining room table. And, if you’re looking to heighten style and add function, you can’t go wrong with an antique brass side table.
The beauty of gold is timeless. It’s been used in home design for ages, and it can be anything from traditional and patina to modern sleek and chic. Gold holds the power to make a stand-out statement or to elegantly dress up spaces with hints of glam and sparkle. When choosing metallic decor, one of the best places to use gold is in wall decor.
Mirrors and photos framed in gold add visual interest, and a piece of gold metal wall art can really steal the show. Gold is also a great dominant tone for creating a mixed metal look, and, if you don’t love the yellow cast of classic gold, you might just fall head over heels for the warm, flush hue of rose gold.
