One of the most popular interior decorating trends in recent years is to mix and match metallics in your decor.


Over the past year, we have seen entire rooms blend different kinds of metals together. Whether it’s on the wall or on a coffee table, mixing chrome and bronze or silver and gold is where it’s at.


How To Mix & Match Metallics

Making this look work in your home is easier than you might think. There really are no right or wrong ways to blend metallics, when it comes to accent pieces.


While you wouldn’t want to have all bronze dining chairs with a chrome table, you can certainly have a group of bronze vases on a chrome tray. Or champagne-coloured candle holders with rose gold decorative accents.


Expert Tip: Try incorporating this look on a smaller scale to start. Adding candle holders, vases, or wall decor in groupings will look great and won’t require a significant investment. Save the bronze accent chairs or chrome coffee table for another time, once you are confident that the style will work in your home.


Pair shiny metallics, like gold or chrome, with more muted tones like antique bronze. You can try this look on a dining table or coffee table, or you can create visual interest on a countertop in your kitchen or bathroom. Wherever you place your grouping, you will create an interesting focal point.


If you would rather attempt this look on a wall, you can incorporate a variety of different-sized mirrors and photos with metallic frames, or even chrome deer heads (which are very on-trend).
