Adorn your interior with must-have metallics
It may be cold outside, but we can assure you the interior trends are heating up for the new season.
Metallics have been big news in the interior world for some time, but for 2020 we’re seeing the warmer colours dominating and a move away from the cooler industrialised finishes of previous years.
Copper, brass, dull gold and rose gold were seen everywhere at the autumn design shows and while they’ve been popular before, they are once again coming to the forefront of contemporary interior design.
Metal is a hugely versatile material and finish, which can easily be incorporated into any room, whether it’s a refined lounge or an open plan family space.
In more formal rooms like drawing or dining rooms, warm metallics can provide a soft glow adding to the ambiance and working beautifully with materials like wood, glass and marble and richer colour schemes.
In your more convivial, brighter spaces, metallics work equally well in functional furniture pieces; elevating calmer, relaxed tones to the next level.
We love this wenge wood coffee table with dulled gold frame in this family room. It adds an element of cool luxury in an otherwise softer, lighter open plan space.
Let your accessories shine
From lighting and plant holders, to mirrors and sculptural pieces, gold accessories can really make your neutral colour palette pop. The ultimate luxury material, golden finishes work well with neutrals and luxurious colours like soft walnut and warm tan. We love how this table lamp stands out in a light and elegant lounge, while this bedside lamp complements the baked colours of the bedlinen and cushions perfectly.
Invest in timeless pieces
The mood in the design world is mirroring that of society as we reject the throw away culture we’ve been accustomed to. Instead of rushing to purchase fast fashion, the new trends are encouraging us to make carefully considered purchases to help the planet.
Metallics have proven themselves to be a favourite of interior designers throughout the decades so you can be sure that by opting for timeless design you’ll have a piece to love for life.
Geometric shapes as well as soft curved edges are as popular now as ever and are great choices for investment pieces.
If budget allows, buy hand-made or bespoke pieces. Quality craftsmanship using time-honoured skills gives us something to cherish, and you’ll find yourself appreciating your homely surroundings even more.
