Metallic Home Accents
Metallic décor has been around for a long time, and in some older homes, the placement or color of the metallic can look outdated. It’s best to focus on using décor items with cleaner lines and mixing metals strategically.
“Incorporating metallics into design can range from hardware pulls in the powder room, to the light fixture in the foyer, all the way to embellished throw pillows in the sitting room,” Rachel Mautner, lead designer, said. “Once you find the perfect balance in material selections, adding metallic pops will provide one with a nice contrast to other colors and materials in the room.”
Metallic accents work well with both neutral pallets and those that love the boldness of jewel tones. However you wish to incorporate metallics into your home décor, you’ll find that a little goes a long way and that it will work well in all rooms of your home.
Everyone loves a clean and crisp white kitchen, and nothing compliments white cabinets better than bronze door handles. Even if you don’t have a white kitchen, there are other ways to incorporate metallic accents into this space.
