It took me a long time to understand the allure of metallic home accessories. I’ve always been a silver girl myself, never going towards the glittery gold or brass hues, feeling they were a little to brash. However, over the last few years tones like gold, brass, copper and silver have exploded in home decor. I’ve finally come over to the metallic side of things, having my own little Kelly Wearstler moment at home. I’ve tuned into the ability of metallic hues to lift and energize a space. In my own beige interior, golden tones have been making an appearance to spice up the boring paint palette (beige was my landlord’s choice, not mine). And paired with today’s most exciting hues like navy blue, purple and pink, metallics can make a real design statement at home.
Here are some of my favorite metallic pieces. You can explore the rest on my Pinterest board.
I’m a fan of antique brass pieces for their vintage feel. The Meurice Mirror by Jonathan Adler is so sophisticated. The bamboo metal would look stunning against a dark black or navy wall.
Accessories like this Globo di Luce Pendant show how beautiful modern copper pieces can be. In a simple neutral interior, this bold light fixture is sure to illuminate with great flair.
An Aluminum Wood Side Table from West Elm showcases the elegant the mix of silver and dark chestnut. It’s the perfect piece for a little rustic-glamour.
My favorite golden accessory has to be this Gold POP “phone” from Native Union. I spotted it while at Maison et Objet in Paris last month and completely fell in love. It can introduce a fun, old-fashioned way to talk on your smart phone and also works as a speaker so you can have a blast listening to your iTunes! I just love the luxe golden finish. It would be the ultimate fashion accessory in my home office.
There’s even more metallic inspiration on my HGTV Color Crush moodboard. Check it out.
