From burnished old world country to sleek monotone modern, metallic surfaces can accent a wide variety of designs. Adding dimension and stark contrast to otherwise subtle spaces, metallic interior design trends are influencing more permanent surfaces such as flooring and backsplashes.
“People are playing with light reflection and color changing overlays,” said Kristin Keeton, a CHI designer. “They love the way a surface changes color with light reflection or as you move around a room.”
Using raw elements like metals in design can add personality to any interior style. Don’t be afraid to experiment. As long as the items you choose are compatible with your personal style, they will look right at home with the rest of the room.
