DS Tip of the Week: Being Mindful of Metallics

Metallics in home decor is very on-trend right now, but is it here to stay?  Accenting with metal as opposed to a pop of color is a great way to dress up and contrast your neutrals in a classic way.  For this reason, decorating with metals will continue to be trendy, and will become  timeless as we look forward in the design industry.

Get out the notepad and jot down these pointers.  That’s right… it’s time for another installment of “Decorating Solutions Tip of the Week!”  This week’s tip comes from Interior Designer Michelle Micolta.  Michelle works at our Vernon Hills store, and helps customers in the Chicago area create the homes of their dreams.

Michelle’s Tip:  “Accessorizing with metals is pretty straight forward.  Stick to one metal in a room, similar to how you would style your jewelry for your outfit!  Don’t be afraid to think outside the box, especially when trying to tie the look of your chosen metal into your furniture to give the room a completed look that flows evenly.  For example, start with your casegoods–your  cocktail and end tables.  Look for metals in the color family you are after.  Unique accent chairs can offer pops of metal in the frame, or lamps can almost always effortlessly tie in all of your colors, materials, and styles.  Don’t forget artwork that features a metal inside the art itself, or in the frame.  Nailheads on sofas and chairs are also a great way to tie in your metal accent, since nailheads are often available in a variety of colors/metals.”
