Apartment inspiration...Mixing Metallics

While I am getting all settled in I'm finding that I'm perplexed as to where to my put things. I want to shake things up a bit in my new space and I think mixing metallics is just the way to do it. I have been inspired lately by overseas decor, especially Parisian and London apartments. They mix metallics with no abandon.
Most things that I really want I cant find in the states. I have to shop abroad, which is kind of annoying. I like to find things from mydeals (UK version) and sometimes ebay can really work too. Have you guys ever tried to buy anything overseas? When I went on my trip to Paris in November, I wanted to buy everything and ship it back but... it's quite difficult, no?
Ah, but the findings are oh so dreamy...
