Working on this I started thinking on how we incorporate metallics in our interior decoration. When I was just a teeage girl I used to really love silver jewlery and I thought that gold was sooo 'old'. And old was not for me back then. Also I thought that mixing metallics was a big no-no! :)) Wearing gold and silver at once? Totally unacceptable!!:))
Well, things have changed both in fashion and home decor stylists are telling us that you should mix metallics!! As long as it is not too harsh on the eye they say it's a go!! I'm with them on this one! Why choose when you love them both? (yes, I changed my mind when I got my hands on my first gold ring...felt soo special!!)
Designers encourage us to mix different hues. And we should, as metals have a certains shine to them, a sheer that influence one another, they give texture and depth to the room they are placed in.
I particularly like mixing different metallic hues in the bathroom. At the house I have three bathrooms and my bathroom will have both gold and silver. I'd love a gold intricate mirror above the vanity which will have silver fixtures, the shower pannel will also have silver so I'm gonna follow modern advice. I think it adds class and personality. I just have to convice my husband!!:))

Enough with the bathrooms, let's see some other rooms:

Metallic furniture is the bomb now. If you are daring enough you can use one of these pieces that scream personality (and many are not made of metallic, only the paint is metallic):
