Rustic Inspired

The combination of weathered wood coordinated alongside wrought-iron details, brings a rustic, rough-hewn appearance to décor that’s both organic and elegant. To achieve this natural vibe in your room, look for pieces where the wood is unrefined and the metal has an antique allure.

Eclectic Haven

To accomplish a more eclectic space, mix your finishes and styles of furniture together. Pair both wood and metal chairs alongside one another, or add in a pop of color or a dazzling metallic accent. Garnish with antique accessories such as a gilded metal frame or mirror. This look is funky and stylish and allows you the freedom to personalize as much or as little as you desire.

Modern Masterpiece

Pairing wood that has a polished and smooth appearance beside ultra-refined metal as seen in the examples above brings modern flavor to décor, many times with an industrial look and feel that’s both stylish and chic. To achieve this contemporary coupling, use modern pieces of furniture as well as modern room accents to tie your whole look together.

A perfect pair to so many colors, you might even call it a neutral! It has the ability to make black seem not so harsh, while also being able to bring out the true beauty of a vibrant red without making it too overbearing (as seen above). There are not many colors you can truly say this about, that can work so fluently alongside others while also being able to stand alone brilliantly!

New England in the Fall via Etsy

If you’ve ever experienced New England in the Fall, you know the vibrant beauty that seems to suddenly appear out of nowhere, transforming busy highways and cottages by the sea into picturesque scenes of color. From gold toned leaves to the comfort of a fireplace to crisp cool nights spent in cozy sweaters, these are the things that make Autumn one of our favorite seasons. So why not invite some of the warmth and magic of the harvest season into your own home? With autumnal colors and natural accents, to decorative pumpkins and more, adding a touch of fall flavor to décor is very simple to achieve.
