Metallics are a huge trend in home design right now, but unfortunately a lot of people shy away from maybe thinking they’ll look too over-the-top.
I couldn’t disagree more—in fact, I love metallic so much that for me, these shades can often act as a neutral.
The old rules don’t apply—for example, I don’t just embrace mixing of metallics—I encourage it. I think metallics add glamour to a room, and regardless of your budget, they can make your design look really high-end.
Here are my favorite ways to incorporate metallics of any shade into your home, some of which are easy and simple, while others are more daring:
If you want to experiment with a small taste of shimmer, why not do it in your throw pillows on your sofa, chairs, or on your bed? Metallics really blend well with nearly any color, and throw pillows are a risk-free way to try a new look.
Nothing says luxury like really beautiful draperies or window coverings—particularly when they’re either entirely metallic or have a little bit of metal-inspired shine delicately woven in.
I love furniture that’s painted either totally in a metallic shade, or accented with a color like gold, silver or rose gold. What’s great about furniture is you can easily refurbish old, basic pieces of furniture using a metallic spray paint for a fresh, modern look without investing in an entirely new item.

Whether it’s paint or wallpaper, metallics can make an amazing backdrop for a room, and they really add a sense of depth and high-end appeal to a space. If you’re worried it’ll be overwhelming, consider doing a feature wall or the ceiling instead.

If you’re a design risk-taker, why not go for the kitchen cabinets? It’s definitely a daring look, but it can pay off in the end. For the same concept on a smaller scale, consider your bathroom cabinets or vanity.
