The metallics trend is a hot one that looks set to continue long into the future. We’ve seen gold accents shining on the catwalks and now we’re dressing our homes to impress with this rich glimmer. A word of warning though: You can overdo it! Getting the look just right can be a delicate balance. Too little goes unnoticed and too much becomes too loud and tasteless. This inspirational home design, visualised by the Minimalome designers team hits it just right.
1. Start With Smaller Elements First
If you’re not sure about the exact look you’re going for, perhaps starting with the smaller gold elements first. Introducing just a few smaller pieces is helpful because you can always move them around in case you decide things look too unbalanced. Lots of decoration projects can benefit from metallic accents.
With its glossy finish and bold look, this pineapple makes a chic addition. Let this pineapple welcome guests from a cheery entryway table or enjoy its unique look in a modern living room, on a large kitchen island, or in a fashionable office.
2.Try Playing With Lighting
The lighting is a solid example of a metallic peice which can make a room feel more elegant and whimsical. Use chandeliers, pendants or wall mounts to add a special touch. This will give your dining room, living room, den, or bedroom a more elegant feeling
