Partnering wood looks with modern warm metallics and textured cools has been a key style trend throughout 2019 and continues to be a coveted style for homes.

Whether you are looking for the jewelled twinkles of subtle metallics, or a bold celebrity looking dazzle, there are some key benefits for interior schemes that work well in both small and large rooms.

Bouncing light

Metallics are a great way of adding light within darker spaces or providing an all-day shimmer or dramatic look for evening lighting. For homeowners wanting a luxurious finish introducing a sparkling wall, floor or accessories is a quick way injecting some opulence into the home.

Warm & Cool

There are two types of metallics – warm and cool. If you are looking for a warm glow then use copper, golds and brass palettes. For a cooler look, silvers and platinums provide a calm and slick look. Both of these palettes work perfectly with a multitude of colour palettes.

Start with the floor

Once you have decided on your warm or cool scheme, start by choosing your floor. A honey or golden look floor works perfectly with warm metallic schemes while silver greys or whitewash effect floors work well with cool metallic schemes.

Wallpapers

There’s such a variety of wallpapers to help provide metallic dazzles from subtle patterns through to full length metallic designs. A great way to compliment your scheme is to include a textured metallic wallpaper in your chosen colour palette.

Soft Furnishings

Patterned fabrics with metallic threads are a great way to add interest to your room and can be dotted around the room in cushions, curtains and upholstery. If you want to keep your fabrics plain then think about adding metallics with curtain ties or tassels in metallics and for cushions, metal buttons.

Time to Reflect

Mirrors are not only a practical element in the home but are a great way of providing stylish room accents. Don’t want a large mirror? Think about grouping smaller mirrors to create that perfect feature wall.

Furniture

Metal frame furniture has been a key part of the retro looks we have seen emerge in the last year. It’s a perfect way of adding Hollywood glam into your home and a metallic element to help brighten your room.
