7 Tips For Decorating With Metallics

From adding splashes of silver to your dining room to identifying the perfect place for a sparkling vase, these creative ways to make your space shine just may inspire your dream home.


1. Pair white and gold for a high-glam look.

White is like a blank slate for attention-grabbing gold. Look for home accessories in this killer color combo or style an entire room with this glamorous palette in mind.

2. Try photography printed on reflective metal. 

An eye-catching alternative to traditional art prints, these beaming beauties have a surprising yet subtle sheen. Each metal print is float mounted, ready to hang, and scratch resistant.

3. Add depth to small spaces with mirrors framed in silver and gold. 

Mirrors, by nature, create the illusion of more space. Metallic-rimmed mirrors knock the effect up a notch.

5. Don’t be afraid to mix metal hues. 

Can’t decide if you prefer silver or gold? Don’t be afraid to pair the two together. Clashing patterns are in, so why not mix your metals too?

6. Ride the rose-gold wave. 

Not super into bronze, silver, or gold? Try rose-gold décor accents and add balance with neutral tones.
