Summer Blog Series: VB Inspired Designs 8
Welcome to week 8 of our Summer Blog Series: VB Inspired Designs! Each week during the summer months, we will be showcasing room-by-room designs, explaining the thought behind every style decision, and giving you tips so you can incorporate these designs into your own home. Our eighth and final design shows how metals, especially gold, can add instant elegance to a space. Gold can definitely set the tone and give your room a statement.
Metallics are all the rage right now, which means gold, silver, copper, and bronze are topping the décor charts. If any or all of these finishes strike your fancy and you are worried you will have to choose just one metallic finish, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Gone is yesterday’s belief that varied metals do not belong in the same ensemble. In fact, mixing them is encouraged.
Metallics are dynamic by nature, and the blend of gold and silver in particular lends not only an intriguing contrast, but also a sense of visual dimension and texture. With the right balance and mixture, your room can feel both elegant and eclectic.
If done well, gold can add mellow, shimmering warmth. It is timeless and elegant. The trick is to choose the right tone — gold varies from bright yellow to a soft burnished hue, which is a bit darker. Used in the right places and in the right combination, it adds simple luxury and perfect balance to make your room a cohesive space.
Here are a few more ways that you can tastefully incorporate metals into your space:
A muted gold/champagne colored mirror sitting aside a unique leather and metal chest with burnished brass knobs: that spells glamorous.
Golden lamp bases embedded with texture add warmth and style.
Peppering the space in between comfortably inviting upholstered seating with metallic tables gives an eclectic punch.
Gold gives off a warmth that both reflects and absorbs light. Nearly every room can use a touch of metal. It adds extra personality and brilliance to your space. This timeless color brings a rich glow to walls, furnishings, accents, and décor that anyone would covet. Without the patina of gold, your space would be just another room.
