Mixed Metallics

by Erika Woelfel


Move over silver bells, you’re getting in gold’s way! And copper’s way…and bronze too! After what seems like years of silver monopolizing home decor products, we’re finally seeing a shift into the warmer side of metal. The best news is, you don’t have to chose one metal for all the light fixtures and faucets in your house. Designers are mixing different varieties of metal to create interest and variety in their interiors, and you can to. Read on for more information on how to mix up the metals in your home…

Warm me up:

Silver hasn’t completely gone away. It is transitioning into warmer tones like platinum and darker pewter finishes.


No one is afraid to mix anymore, whether it be on the fashion runways or holiday decor items. Keep last year’s silver decorations, and introduce them to gold!



Silverware is no longer just plain old silver. A golden pattern ups the luxury factor.


Furniture pieces can go from basic to amazing by mixing gold and silver details. On this dresser, the hardware pieces are silver while edging and drawer panels are a muted gold.


Lighting trends go in a whole new direction by mixing silver, gold and copper metal chains.


Graceful Gray PPU18-12.


Glam it up with mirrored surfaces, gold picture frames and silver details.

Colorfully yours,
