Mixing up the metallics...

Friday, June 18, 2010

I have a friend who has been struggling in her decision to bring in some bronze elements into her mostly grey, silver and chrome palette. She is afraid of mixing metallics, but I think she can do it...as long as it stays balanced. I think it adds a bit of texture to the room. What do you guys think? Keep it all matchy matchy or mix it up? 


Loving this bold bronze like statement mirror that works quite nicely with chrome legs and mirrored lamps. Image via Homes and Gardens.


Bring in a little gold with some painted iron? Nice. Image via here.


A bronze mirror paired with a cooler grey. Looks great. Image via Elle Decor.


I love these different tones of gold coupled with the silver chair. Image via Elle Decor.


Check out that crazy bronze mirror, rot iron fireplace and chrome sofa legs. Not to mention that   crazy ceiling height and lovely moulding. Image via Decorpad.

P.S Last chance to enter my GIVEAWAY today. Happy friday folks.

Mix it up for sure...it adds interest and stops it looking too much like a catalogue.

Mix it up. Matchy matchy is so passe. and boring.

Hmm, that's a great question! In jewelry I don't like mixed metals, but I think it's fine in interiors, as long as each metal type is confined to a "category"... ie. silver hardware and gold accents.

Oh, and thank you so much for the sweet comment you left on my blog, I'm happy I've found yours and will add it to my blogroll =)

Oh mix it up mix it up!!! Matchy matchy is no fun. Besides grey, silver and chrome are all "cool" tones...she needs to bring in some warm tones and bronze should do the trick! That first pic with the bronze mirror is perfect...I say bring on the bronze!!!
