Shine On!

Posted on 29 December 2014

We’re days away from ringing in 2015, and what a better way to brighten up your New Year than with art that shines! 

Gold, silver, and copper have always been at the base of any design in traditional features like chandeliers and hardware, but is now  popping up in unexpected places.

 

Glam Up Your Room

Metals are considered neutrals, so they make it so easy to introduce into any existing color scheme, and update any design to add instant elegance and drama!

Mix and Match

You can add gold and silver, copper or stainless steal, with art or frames! Don’t think of the pairings as strong contrasts but rather as complements. As to not overwhelm the room, be sure to make one metal more dominate and then place a few glinting accent pieces from the other!

Frame Fun

If you already have that perfect placed mirror or artwork, remember a stunning metallic frame is a great way to add interest, texture and personality to any room.

Gold Lush

When decorating with metallic art, you can never have too much gold…or any other metal for that matter! To have more metal elements in a room and still maintain a good balance play around with different finishes from matte, to vintage, to high shine!
