Things I Love: Metallic Details
Nothing attracts attention like the shine and sparkle of metallic accents in a room - that's why it's one of the things I most love in interior design! You can see an example of that in the powder bath I designed below for the ASID Showhouse in Tomball, TX.
I custom designed the pattern on the wall, which is hand painted pearl fresco with gilded details by Anything But Plain Decorative Finishes and Plasters! And isn't that sconce gorgeous - I designed it with metalsmiths Peck and Company. Add in that fab hammered sink and metal accents, and this bathroom achieves the gold standard in shimmer.
Taking a cooler route in silvery tones, I love the metal tiles above from Alloy. Chic, sophisticated, but also easy to clean.
In the kitchen I designed above for Team Drew on Brother vs. Brother, we added a more subtle metal look with a rubbed brass band around the range hood. I love that soft glow and how it warms up the cool colors in the room.
If you don't want to make the commitment of having your metallic motifs on the walls or in a permanent band around a hood, try using accessories. I am crazy for the bold shine in the look above, especially in that fabulous gold pillow.
