Metallics may be an unexpected look for this time of year – glistening silvers and golds are often reserved for party season. But here at Barker and Stonehouse, we think that metallics look amazing all year round.
Interiors filled with metallics mirror the elegance and glamour that can be found in some of the world’s best hotels. The trend demonstrates how a muted palette can demand attention through the use of luxurious finishes and materials.
Our Metallic Moods look is the perfect example of how to use metallics in an interior. Here we show you how to achieve this look in your own home.
When it comes to using a pared-back colour pallette, texture is essential to keep the look interesting; grey and beige tones will be elevated with a mix of plush fabrics and materials.
Subtly bringing together elements such as tactile surfaces, soft velvets, quality leathers and brushed metals is key to achieving this trend. Try a leather sofa with a mix of rich fabric cushions and throws, alongside a shaggy rug to complete the look.
The Grosvenor Maxi Sofa features an opulent mix of textures that will bring style and glamour to your home. It combines soft grey leather and luxurious damask velvet with a beautiful metallic sheen.
Channelling the metallic magnificence of precious metals, our Metallic Moods look embraces a mixed mineral inspired palette of silver tones, fused with touches of gold embellishment.
The coolness of the silver and grey shades are perfect for creating a backdrop that elevates the rich textures and understated motifs featured in this interior scheme. Meanwhile the introduction of gold adds warmth into the trend whilst flashes of faux fur and sequins inject that final touch of glamour.
To create modern metallic interior, don’t just stick with one metal. Combine a range of silvers, golds and bronzes to keep the look fresh and contemporary.
Our Glaston Bar Cart is the perfect addition to our Metallic Moods look, made from iron with antique brass finish and a faux Shagreen top.
