Hot Summer Metallics - A Guest Post

Is there anything hotter, more luxurious and summery than metallics? Right now, metallics like gold, rose gold and silver are trending in home d├ęcor. What's great about metallics is you can either combine them to create an especially glitzy space, or you can use them to accent other colors. White and Gold is an especially hot combination right now, perhaps because it's so summery and chic. So take a look at these images for a bit of metallic inspiration.

This old-fashioned clawfoot tub in an old-school apartment is modernized with beautiful metallic accents of gold and silver. Interestingly enough, it used to be out of fashion to mix metals, but when done sparingly, it can be very elegant and tasteful.

The dining room design of this Parisian apartment is accented with golden home accessories. If you're afraid to go all the way with gold, try finding accents that are gilded, like this oversized vintage mirror.

The color combination of white and sand in this bedroom, with a canopied bed, is accented by hints of gold. Again, gilded picture frames are a great way to play with the trend.

A pair of Arne Jacobsen's Egg Chair, shown here in silver leather, is so unexpected and playful in this space. This 'fireplace' is so tongue-in-cheek.

Room Envy (via)
This contemporary dining room is cleverly decorated with silvery gray. From a vintage pewter cafe chair, to the silver of the Tulip dining room table-- even the blue-tiled backsplash appears to have a metallic sheen here. If you wanted to take it a step further, you can add some gilded or silvery table decor.
Be a little adventurous when it comes to metallics. Mix them up, use them in unexpected ways or use them to brighten up your home in preparation for the hot summer.
