Mixing metals

Mixing metals is almost equivalent to having patterns on patterns. To pull this off, it is important to find a balance between the two metals to prevent looking overly deliberate. For a subtle effect, tarnished and darker shade metals usually goes well with each other.

Chromes in neutral

Chrome furnishing often gives an illusion of a serious space, this is especially so for neutral concept homes. For the most modern, no nonsense workspace, include a chrome table lamp. To soften the look, flowers arranged in the minimalist concept will do the trick.

Gold plated class

Gold has this imposing nature to it and it comes to no surprise that a classy, sophisticated space should include this precious colour. For a simple, chic and modern space, keep the décor and gold to a minimal so as to ensure that it remains as the focal point of the room.

Modern Brass

Brass brings two extremes to the overall décor depending on its finish. As a fixture in a prominently neutral space, adds a contemporary spin to the space. A tarnished brass however, brings a touch of antiquity.

Silver lining

Most metals today come in the form of stainless steel silver. To prevent the space from looking overly dull, include various textures. For a seamless design yet clean style, marble, granite and glass are great accompaniment.
