10 Things That Will Make You Fall In Love With Metallics

Maybe the rich look of metallic accents is not your thing, but the following 10 images may just change your mind! There are definitely a few tricks when considering using chromes, golds, silver, copper, pewter or even cold, hard iron. Firstly ensuring the finish doesn't dominate your room entirely (we don't want to be living in a hotel restroom or office lobby) and secondly using softer textures and colours to compliment your metallic feature to lift it so it becomes almost a statement piece or ultimately giving your space the extra 'wow' factor it deserves.

Here are our favourite uses of metallics:
