Decorating with Metallics

Metallic home accents are a major influence in home design, and no matter your style, they can be incorporated to elevate the look of any space. From rustic and glamorous, to the more traditional, rooms of all styles are screaming for metals–and we’re excited to share a little inspiration on how to go metal!

Rustic spaces can be styled using hand-stained wood elements, natural finishes and materials, and metallics. Industrial-inspired, brushed metals are a muted, quiet way to incorporate metallics into your space. Warm copper is a great complement to rustic design, as are touches like brushed nickel drawer pulls and wrought iron accents. Rustic metals add depth, and are a great way to give a rustic space a stylish edge.  We love the Studio City Sofa for its rustic, casual-chic look. Combining it with the metallic Hammered Urn Lamp, the organic, earthy Rope Mirror, the rustic Wade Coffee Table, and the Arthur Wine Cabinet creates an eclectic space with warm, subdued metal accents throughout.

Glamorous designs don’t have to be over-the-top–and neither do glam metallics. Start with a romantic piece like the Riviera Sofa. Accent the room with the polished Aladdin Lamp in silver, the stately Venetian Mirror, a carved glam piece like the Channing Coffee Table, and a metallic-accented chest like the Dash for a look that is tastefully glamorous. This way, metals add a formal feel without being too much, and really give a space character.

Traditional rooms don’t have to be stuffy. With an anchoring piece like the handsome Hampton Sofa, accent like the Classic Urn Lamp, the lovely Angelica Mirror, the romantically shaped Cyprus Isle Coffee Table, and the metal & marvelous Gilded 2 Door Cabinet give a traditional space a luxurious, inviting feel.

Mixing in gold and silver tones with rich cream add depth, warmth, and bring even the most traditional space into modern style.

No matter how you go metal, try mixing tones and finishes for a curated style that’s all yours. Seek pieces in shapes you are drawn to, and find the metal that means something to your aesthetic.
