Going for Gold or Silver: Metallics

“Hello, everyone! It’s Mari here, with a guest post from Arcadian Home blog, a great place to find interior design inspiration for everything from beautiful folding screens to colorful contemporary wall art.

Last year metallics of every sort were on the trending list. It seems that trend is going to continue through 2014. Today’s post is about going for gold or silver in home decor. Adding metallics to interior spaces is a great way to bring a bit of glamour into your life. Here are eight rooms made better by gold or silver metallic elements. Please enjoy!

A wall-mounted console table, gold-framed mirror and ball pendant light covered with golden scales infuse this room with metallic beauty.

At one time an interior design no-no, mixing metals has become very fashionable. This eclectic space mixes styles and metals beautifully.

This appealing dining room shows off lots of metallic style, from the massive light fixture above to tiny brass feet on the table. What an intriguing idea. A blown glass pendant light gets another layer of gold on top of its metallic base.
