Metal Mixology

MetalMixology

Fashion and interior design trends may evolve on parallel paths. Gold, silver, bronze or copper mixes in jewelry have been an accepted fashion statement for decades. Cartier may have brought it to the mainstream in the 1970’s with Love bracelets and bands featuring yellow gold, white gold and rose gold. Today it’s a classic look. The concept has been used more cautiously in interiors, but it is now trending strong. Mixing metals doesn’t have to be a bold choice. Select a dominant metal like bronze and accent it with matte gold. Use your color scheme as a guide to integrate wall coverings, interesting textiles and a mix of metal finishes and textures to add character and interest to your interior.
