If you have been hesitant about mixing metals in the same room, fear not! The beauty of mixing metals is the added visual interest, enhanced character and the ability to blend warm and cool tones in any space! It fact, it is quite freeing and opens up endless design possibilities!
In this gorgeous, modern kitchen you can see how a brass faucet was used as the perfect accent tone into a room with predominantly silver tones.
The contrast of the sleek silver vases with the gilded coffee table add visual depth to the room and their high and low placement keeps them from competing with each other! In addition, the classic, curvy legs of the coffee table are anchored to the traditional rug and the vases compliment the chic fireplace.
This beautiful piano room has a blend of three metals that combine effortlessly!
As your eye moves around this room, you notice the silver accessories on the dresser and the Greek Key chrome base on the ottoman at the end of the bed. These elements give this warm space some metallic equilibrium!
