Mixing Metallics

The holidays are a season of sparkle and glitter and gold and silver are a Christmas decor staple. I am often asked the question of whether it is okay to mix gold and silver and other metallic tones.

The answer my dears is a big FAT “Yes.”  Matchy matchy metals are a thing of the past.  Just as in fashion, mixing metals is the latest trend in interiors.

The key is to not go overboard and limit yourself to no more than 3 metal sheens in a room.  Take a cue from these rooms that mix gold, silver, nickel, brass and more!

So yes, you can put a brass object next to silver candlesticks.  A safe place for most people to experiment is with pillows!  So, get out of your comfort zone and mix it up!
