Remember the days when you had to declare yourself a gold or silver person? When rooms had to choose their metallic preference and stick to it? Each and every piece of hardware, fixture and framing had to match perfectly because – heaven forbid – you’d be at risk of clashing. Those days are over with more and more interior designers proving that mixed metallics can be just as stylish.
Cool metallic tones (such as silver, nickel and steel) bring a slick, modern aesthetic whilst warmer tones (gold, rose gold, bronze and brass among others) are inviting, flattering and subtly glamorous. A mixture of the two offers unique looks – modern with a touch of glamour, minimalism with an inviting appeal and rawness refined.
