Monthly Trend Report: Metallics

 

Here’s the lovely Tina Ramchandani again with her monthly interior designer’s trend report.  This month spoke to me loudly since my favourite colour is SHINY and we’re sort of considering somehow making the space around the toilet in the bathroom gold or silver. (The Husband and I may have been drinking too much when we discussed this.)

Hello again! It’s Tina of Life in Sketch, here with your Monthly Trend Report. Spring is just around the corner and the weather is getting warmer. I’m in the mood to redecorate, and I’m sure you must be too.

It’s always nice to see what’s in trend, and what trends are about to pop up so we can decorate our homes accordingly. After all, we want our spaces to be the envy of all our neighbors! Today I’m going to talk to you about metallics. While this isn’t exactly a new trend, it’s something that’s stood the test of time. We seem to see metallics popping up more in the spring and summer, don’t you think? I see more wood pieces in the winter, and maybe because metallics appear lighter they seem the pop up in interior design as the weather gets warmer.

You can use metallics in several ways. You can install a metallic wallpaper but if you decide to go this route be careful. Too much shine can be overwhelming, so you may want to install this in a small room or area, like at the back of a bookcase. I like to find metallic side tables, which will add a little bling to my room. Horchow has a great selection. If you’re willing to search, you may be able to find fabrics that have a little sheen, or metallic threads sewn in. This will give your room a very luxe look!

Do you have metallic accents in your space? What do you think of this classic look?

    i like the look of the metallic lighting in the top left picture. i’m giving my kitchen a little refresh – nothing as drastic as the work Paola has going on at the moment – and want to update the lighting with something like these. i might go for gold i think…
