What Houzz contributors are saying:
Go to town with metallics. Touches of silver, gold, brass or copper will add instant glamour, but they don’t have to be confined to accessories such as lamps, mirrors and picture frames. Copy this look and use a metallic wall paint to create a stunning backdrop for your decor. Here, the contrasting bold rug, quirky artwork and Moroccan-style brass frette stools provide the boho vibe.
Pair with a hot hue. Silver is the more glamorous big sister to gray and can shake up a space with a delightful gleam. This striking silver painted wall is the perfect highlight to the gray and pink palette, and sparks to life when the sun bounces off it. Add a pair of Moroccan-style perforated metal drum tables — or other silver accessories that conjure up hot climes — and a scattering of sumptuous silvery velvet cushions, as was done here, for a thoroughly eclectic and light-filled look that will see you through the summer months and beyond.
“This is where the girls and their friends spend the most time hanging out. The house is always full of teenagers,” Byrne says.The space, which is next to the dining area, is every teenager’s (and a few oldies’) dream. There’s a large TV, twinkly fairy lights for a cozy glow after dark and a vintage-style pink record player, which gets good use from Byrne’s youngest daughter, an avid vinyl collector. The silver-leaf wall covering has a slightly antiqued effect, which makes it warmer, Byrne says.Zebra-patterned rug: made to order, Loomah; floor lamps: Best & Lloyd; corduroy chair: 1950s, The French House; brass side tables: Frette, Lombok; wall covering: Altfield
