The key to mixing metals successfully is by using a proper balance. For every silver item used, be sure to even out the look with a mix of gold.
"Don't be afraid to mix the metals" says designer Michel Boyd who uses gold and silver together in his space. Metallics, says Boyd, work for him like a pop of color. "That reflective surface is the pop of color," says Boyd.
A modern metal pendant light adds an unexpected touch to this kids' bathroom, which features elegant toile wallpaper. The funky gold mirror in the background highlights the playful use of mixed metals in the space.
Seasonal trees aren't restricted to holiday use. Give your home a graphic winter vibe with a metal candle tree that will light up the space on long, cold nights. It's best to keep candle trees at least one foot away from walls, window treatments and upholstery.
