If you were to decorate your entire home in gold and silver, it would probably look very year 3000 — people would have to wear jumpsuits and it would be like Jane Fonda meets the future. But if you add just a touch of metal here and there, it becomes very glamorous. Metal takes a bohemian room to modern, it makes shabby chic just plain chic. Go ahead and try it, you'll be surprised how little it takes to make a room look glam. — Ana from Rearranged Design
