I have the honor of being a featured designer every month in the Dallas Morning Newspaper. I've been brainstorming things to discuss in terms of design and decor. What trends I think should go and new ones to come. This next month, I wanted to touch on the subject of metallics. I'm a huge advocate for metallics in the home. I honestly think its like the jewelry of the room. It's been a huge trend to adorn room with a ton of metallic accessories especially with brass and copper really making huge waves in the design world. It's everywhere.
I love the metallics but I've seen the monochromatic metallic look so much, that I want to encourage you guys to not be afraid to mix metallics in a room. No need to stay with only gold, silver or bronze, etc. Try mixing them up in a balanced way. Notice in the above photo, my old bedroom. I used mostly brass and gold accents but I added in a chair with chrome studs and for me it balanced out the look of too much gold. If they were gold studs it would be overwhelming.
Here is another example:
I absolutely love the look of this room with neutral pieces and mixed metallic accessories. I think the rule is to keep a balance of each metallic.
I absolutely fell in love with mixed metallics for the holidays look. Rose gold ornaments are my obsession this year. . .
