Looks We Love: Mixed Metals

Just like mixing patterns, mixing metals on the interior can be tricky, but we think we’ve mastered the art. Here are a few keys to achieving this popular look:
BALANCE

Interior features shouldn’t compete for your attention. Interesting texture and bold color should be complemented by simpler finishes to create a cohesive look. The key to mixing metals is to balance them intentionally throughout your space.

These gold statement pendants are subtly complemented by gold cabinet hardware creating a cohesive look.

LAYERS

Great architects like Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier have taught us that when it comes to finishes, less is more. I say, done correctly layering finishes can add interest and depth to your space – but don’t get crazy.

I consider metals to be neutral. Pair it with warm wood tones and you’ve got a flawless layered-finish look. *BONUS: You can warm silver and chrome up, or effectively tie gold accents into your space.
