Trends: Molten Metallics

Date: 10/13

A shimmer here, a glimmer there- metallics in all their glory, are making a big impact.

With the ability to transform any space, metallics offer a striking change from their muted counterparts. Coordinating with nearly all palette's, they make mundane neutrals come alive and yet add a refinement to lively brights.

Allowing your rooms to shine with the raw brilliance of metallics has become incredibly simple. From small polished pieces to walls of decadent decor, the new metallic trend can easily be brought into your home. Accessories, especially rounded ones, when placed near windows cause the natural light to bounce off of their curves, inherently creating the illusion of a larger room (a great tip for small spaces!). Try framing a mirror or painting glass bottles to help add depth and dimension, both easy D.I.Y. projects.

Harmonize your home by tying your rooms together with a sophisticated sparkle. Create continuity by incorporating metallic accents from one room to the next. Gain inspiration from your travels or even simply from the season. Looking for more of a statement? Molten metallic furniture and wallpaper are a fantastic way of adding some flair.

While deciding how to incorporate these shimmering shades may be overwhelming- remember that the right accessory or statement piece will complete your look- not compete with it.
