Guest Picks: Modern Metallics
Along with something black, something white and something textured, every room also needs something metallic. Whether you opt for shimmer or shine, a touch of metallic will provide a highlight to any room. And they're not just for fancy or formal interiors. There's a huge range of modern metallic accessories suited to eclectic, contemporary and even casual homes. Better yet, you can throw out the old rules of sticking to one metal in your home and mix and match gold, silver, copper and bronze to your heart's content! — Alicia from Atypical Type A
