Glittering gold, luxe silver, brazen brass, unassuming bronze – most of us have a favorite we gravitate towards. Some go bold and mix metals, and when done right, it truly elevates the visual interest of a room. Others like to ease into metallics by starting with one finish and layering in a few accent pieces to make a space feel captivating. Metals can not only change the look of a space, but they also adjust the feel by adding warmth through bronze and matte gold, or a touch of glam by using chrome or brass. Pair with furniture and decor in bold or subtle textures and patterns, depending on where you fall between minimalism and maximalism, and your metallic elements will make any space shine.
