Year after year we see completely new interior design trends take the world by storm, and each of them never fails to feature a new metal accent that has ‘risen to the top’ in that time frame. From brushed copper and nickel to dull gold and platinum, metal accents have a way of adding unfettered sophistication, elegance and glamour in any interior design. Each flavor of metallic accent brings something new to the palate, let’s take a look at how these metal accents can be used to make your interior designs more glam and beautiful!
1. Up and down
The gold metal accents in this open kitchen are what adds some tonal contrast to the whole setting. While most of the surfaces have been cladded in dull, smooth and elegant materials, the overall setting would never look this stunning without the use of the gold accented pendent lights and the bar stools. Both of these objects have been designed in a highly contemporary fashion. This adds a glamorous panache to the whole setting.
2. Being subtle
The first rule about using metal accents in your interior design is that you have to be completely subtle about it. You are not encouraged to have a huge copper tinted wall panel clad over a feature wall. Instead, these metal accents have to be used with careful deliberation. The stool designs coupled with the suspended pendent lights are the only objects in this entire space that features understated gold metal accents, which is how they subtly glam up the whole ambiance.
3. Miscellanies accessories
Another great way to introduce metal accents in your interior designs is by using them sporadically throughout your space. For example, in this bedroom interior design, the metal accents have been introduced with the help of accessories lie the side table lamps and small trinkets and bauble featured in the study table.
Metal accents do not always have to be shiny. You can make them as dull as you want depending on the kind of coating and finish that you choose. The aluminum framing is used in the central island display of this walk-in closet is a great example of this particular technique. You can also use a similar method for window grills, door frames and more.
