When it comes to redecorating your home, many people struggle with ways to make it look unique, but still timeless. You don’t want to go too trendy, because nobody wants to redecorate again the next year, but it’s no fun to stay too safe – that makes for boring decor! A great way to add a little glitz and glam to your home’s decor is to work metallics into the mix. There are many ways to do this in a chic and tasteful way:
When you’re decorating a living room or other welcoming space, you don’t want to use too many metallics as it may cause the room to feel cold and not very cheery. On the other hand, mixing metallic accessories with other textures throughout the room is a great way to balance out both of those aspects. For example, hanging a 3 piece mirror set with metallic frames over a couch adorned with a fur or velvet furniture slipcover, you can channel a lavish vibe in the living room, effortlessly! Take this decorating idea to the bedroom by accenting a bed with a metallic headboard and throw pillows in luxury textures.
Consider the color palette
If you want a metallic shade to be the main color in your room, it’s important to pick a scheme that complements the metallic home accessories. In most cases, you’ll want to keep the room’s theme fairly subdued, but you can incorporate pops of color as well. If you choose bronze, this shade pairs best with warm shades like yellows and oranges. These can act as your pops of color, or you can pick soft hues to spread them throughout the room. For silver, you’ll want to keep a cooler color scheme in light shades. Gray, sky blue or even lavender can be very calming in a room with silver accents. For gold, you can get a little wild with brighter shades of home furniture, like red or royal blue without it looking like too much.
Keep it simple
While it may be tempting to mix metallics in your decor – there are so many stylish choices out there – it’s best to keep a single hue as the dominant color in a room. This will give the space a cohesive feel and allow you to mix and match other aspects of the room, because they’ll all be tied together with the single metallic shade.
