I always welcome simple ways to freshen up a home and make it a happier place, however, I do have a soft corner for a little glamour as well. Who doesn’t?
Metallics have been back and trending. They are making appearances in magazines and catalogues (in small doses and most inspiring ways) for about a year and while whites and creams never lost their charm, its no wonder that the combination is just amazing.
Neutral tones are clean and subtle. They work as a canvas – amazing stories can be created over them with a mix of colors and textures to bring out the best in a home. When on one side, neutrals can create an elegant look when used alone, they also welcome a lot of natural light inside making other accents to pop up. That’s when your best collectibles make you proud in front of your friends.
But – when neutrals are mixed up with metallics, they create a glamorous mood and are a great attraction to eye (lovely!). It all depends on what kind of metallic color is being used and how much, though.
White + metallics; its the new happy neutral. The combination just goes about with every style without giving that expensive and formal look in case you don’t prefer it, because I don’t. As long as things are simple and fresh around the house, I’m happy with them. Styles, choices and tastes keep changing with time, so I don’t find it sensible to make huge investments in things that would lose their meaning and usefulness in some time. Whatever your design style is and in whatever way you love to decorate your home, starting off with some neutrals, blending in a little bit of metallic tones will do the job perfectly.
