Metallic Accents Will Make Your Room Sparkle!

Move over silver, pewter, and chrome and make way for warm metallics this season!  If you thought gold, copper, and bronze were “traditional” metals that made a room feel stuffy or old-fashioned, take a look at the photos below.  Warm metallics are the perfect accent to a modern (or traditional) room.  You can purchase smaller and less expensive pieces such as cushions, vases, and hardware to create some sophistication to a room.  Or, you can invest in larger, more expensive items, such as lighting fixtures, bombe chests, and tables to add some oomph to a space.  Metallics are a quick and easy way to add much needed texture to a room, while giving it the perfect balance between classic and modern styles.

Since I was a kid, I used to stay up at night and quietly rearrange the furniture in my home. My parents would wake up and be stunned at the transformations that took place. "Why?" they'd ask. And all I could say was, "I was bored with the room". I became a school teacher but never lost my interest in design. I love how space, colour, and texture combine to show off someone's personality. I can't wait to share my ideas with you!
