When we think of autumn we think of warm tones, the softest, warmest blankets and bonfires; Admittedly, metallics probably don't spring to mind, but we've been exploring warm metallics, perfect for the cooler months - which will shine and reflect an enticing glow into your home. Nothing livens up a room in a more sublime fashion than a little twinkle, sparkle or shine! The use of metallics offers an opportunity to radiate a statement of glamour, elegance, or sophistication and creates interest in your interior space.
Featured Item: Copper Kitchenaid Mixer, Selfridges £615.
We love the warmer golden, copper and bronze tones teamed with soft pinks to evoke a glamorously vintage feel - something about this combination is not only very NOW, but also seems to remind us of our glamourous great aunt's powder box and fluffy puff sat elegantly on her vintage French dressing table or a Laduree box from Paris full of our favourite sweet goodies!
For a more dramatic look you're always safe to team a statement metallic with a darker, even black, background - a sexy Hotel Costes vibe can easily be achieved with a large metallic floor lamp in a boldly dark painted room. If you're feeling a little braver, why not even try a bright accent wall colour for your metallic piece to really shine against - maybe an emerald green, majestic purple or deep turquoise.
