Here are 5 ways in which you can incorporate this trend in your new lavish home:

LAYER ON TEXTURE

Metallic elements can leave your room looking sharp and edgy. However, sometimes this can go south by creating harsh lines. If you mix textures, you can add a cosy feel to your space. Adding a fluffy rug under a metallic dining table will help soften the sharp edges giving the room some depth.

NATURAL BEAUTY

Metal can sometimes be cold and harsh when left alone. It often needs to be accompanied by natural elements that will soften its look and make it blend in rather than stand out. Wood and leather are rich natural elements that are perfect for this job. Adding a brick accent wall, leather chairs or a wooden coffee table will do the trick.

SHINE ON SHINE

It does not matter if you use cooler toned metals or warmer, when you appropriately mix metallic shades it always looks chic. However, hold your horses, do not over mix numerous tones and textures. This could leave your space looking more garish than glamourous. Use chrome as your base metal colour and other lighter colours such as silver and rose gold for accent elements.

RICH FABRICS

Complement your metals with rich fabrics. Using velvet or silk along with metal pieces, especially chrome will add to the richness of the space. Cold metal shades such as dark grey or chrome cohabitate best with rich, deep, jewel tones.

BALANCING ACT

It is all about how you can balance your metals. As we mentioned before, metals can be over-bearing when accumulated in one particular area. Therefore, distribute your metals evenly within your space. This is the general thumb rule to follow while mixing metals. You can explore your creativity in a balanced manner
