Opulent gold, shimmering bronze, sparkling silver, and refined nickel interiors…see why we’re going mad for metallics!
Metallics seem to be all the buzz lately and the world of interior design is no exception. From warm golden hues and bronze accents to cool chromes and modern stainless steel finishes, metallics bring an element of regality and glamour that is so eye-catching we can’t help but stare. So bring on the bling and take a look at how we incorporate these precious metals into modern, contemporary spaces to get inspired!
So maybe silver and chrome metallics are too cold and stark for you? Try metallics such as gold, brass, and copper, which bring instant warmth to a room. Combine those hot metals with lacquered finished woods if you want more of a contemporary look. Our Dallas Visuals Team created a gold mine by combining a variety of golden hues and materials! The silky sheen bedspread and velvet drapes combined with the brass hourglass-shaped table lamps bring an ultra-luxurious and regal feel with a modern and contemporary touch.
Black & Bold
On the other side of the spectrum, incorporating larger statement pieces in cool metallics will create a more modern, stark look. Take a classic neutral like black and combine it with matte stainless steel decor and cool chrome embellishments for that high-drama effect and industrial look that is both sophisticated and modern with a hint of masculinity.
Natural materials fuse with glamorous accents for an effortless, yet elegant look. In addition to acting as great dinner conversation pieces, the eye-catching silver painted Pacific Console and polished stainless steel Ciato Dining Base are complemented and softened by the warmth of the natural acacia wood table top and upholstered dining chairs.
It used to be that mixing metals was a design and fashion faux pas–not anymore! Think of your metallic pieces like jewelry! If done properly, a combination of silver, gold, and brass, just to name a few can add great visual interest and live harmoniously in any space. In this ultra-glam Cantoni bedroom, silver acts as the dominant metal, creating an overall sense of unity, while accents like the gilt gold glazed Ravi Table Lamps and bronzed metal legs of the Flow Cocktail Table draw the eye throughout the space.
Metallics can be incorporated into your space through more than just small accessories. If you’re ready to take the plunge, add metallics through your furnishings to create a design statement and focal point for your room. As opposed to having a pop of color, the iridescent and gleaming arm chair in this rich velvet fabric acts as that pop but in a neutral fashion, allowing for other colors and textures to enter the mix.
Metallics & Patterns
For a room that craves interest and texture, mixing metallics and patterns will definitely do the trick! Case in point: The Barrel Accent and Cocktail Table come together with the striking black and white patterned rug to add just the right amount of modern edge and glam to this simple and clean living area.
