Metallic Finishes

Using Metallics as an Accent Color

While metallic accents may have once been considered to come across as a sort of “cheap” looking accent, many different tones of metallic accents are making waves in interior design nowadays. With the abundance of rose gold tones and copper, you may be tempted to add some of these glistening accents to your home.

Let’s take a look at what some people are doing that’s super glitzy and successful:

Copper Pots & Pans as Accents

Copper pots and pans are coming back in a BIG way. Not only are they great to cook in, but as long as you keep up on the cleaning of copper pots and pans, they make awesome accents for your kitchen.

Rose Gold Accents

Rose gold is sort of similar to copper, but it has a bit more of a “warm” tone to it. You can think of it like copper that is blushing. Don’t expect to find lots of things in rose gold when you’re shopping: the concept of rose gold is relatively new in terms of coming to popularity so suddenly. Though it was invented in the 1920s, we didn’t start seeing it in pop culture until recently.

Yellow Gold Accents

Once considered a bit tacky, gold used sparingly can actually look pretty glam. Here are some great ideas on how to use yellow gold accents without going crazy and overdoing it. Some of the best uses of metallic accents occur sparingly against limited palette interior design rooms, such as black and white rooms, or monochrome rooms.
