Shimmer, Shine and Sparkle… What’s up with Metallic Furniture?

Who doesn’t love a little sparkle in their life? When trying to incorporate metallic pieces into your home it can be tricky to find the right accents to keep a room looking classy rather than brassy. Wha-la is here to help with some quick tricks that can transform any room in your house into an enchanting and sophisticated space!

The bathroom is one of the easiest places to bring in metallic features. Brass bathtubs are incredibly popular right now and look great with both neutral and chromatic color schemes. Include details such as mirror frames and towel racks with the same shade of bronze to maintain harmony across the room.

Metallic throw pillows

If you aren’t ready to commit to a large (or expensive) piece of furniture quite yet accents like throw pillows and framed artwork are smart ways to spice up more modest pieces…. such as a cream couch. The key is to mix and match texture and shade to keep the composition interesting to the eye.

Silver wall

Wallpaper is making a come back! What better way to make a vivacious metallic statement than with ornate silver wallpaper? There are infinite possibilities of color combinations and patterns to match the layout of an already furnished room that just needs a pick me up. Pair statement wallpaper with simple and monochrome furniture to complete the stylish look.

Gold ceiling

Feeling a little more daring than wallpaper? Try adding a pop of shine to your ceiling! This gold ceiling compliments the gold base of the couch beautifully, unifying the composition of the room while also adding light. In a room with a lot of natural light, gold is the perfect accent color to brighten a space without looking too gaudy.

Gold Bar

Finally we can look at how to pair metallic with colors…. or lack there of. Black can be a challenging color in interior design, but when done correctly we simply LOVE the end result. Mixing gold a black through the use of a large statement piece and smaller accessories is a perfect way to do this. It keeps the room from being too dark and places an even greater focus on your eye-catching chrome piece of choice!
