Mixed Metals

Metallics… the color of radiance

Metallics add dazzle and flash to the world. While some colors absorb light, a metallic finish sees the light of the room and ups the ante, reflecting it back into the space with a wink. They are eye-catching. Did you ever hear the urban legend that gold and silver clash? Well, that’s simply not true. Mixing metals is fun and totally fashionable. Mica flakes can be found in the cave paintings of ancient civilizations, still sparkling today. Even back in paleo times man was looking to add a little glitz! Today, decor featuring a metallic sheen can bring luxurious sophistication to fine spaces, or a chic edge to a more modern style. From vases and candlesticks to shimmering wallpaper and gilded furniture finishes, metallics bring a captivating glow to your home. We recommend infusing some shimmer into decor in doses similar to the radiant spaces below:
