Make Your Interior Shine with the Latest in Metallic Homeware and Furnishing


When it comes to metallic, gold and silver are my favourite and both these glamorous tones can work in every style of room. Whether it is an accessory or a piece of furniture, the metallic look continues to trend so don't wait for Christmas to show off a little bling be inspired by some of the ideas I've discovered.

Depending on your personal style and room you want to enhance, introducing a little gold or silver can be as subtle or as loud as you want. The rooms I have selected above and below, each have their unique style using gold and silver tones. I especially love the hammered silver kitchen of Jean-Louis Deniot. To help you achieve the look I have also curated a board.

  1. Oh I love it all, I have been on a gold and silver kick for a while now. Can't get enough.

    1. I know Marty, I have some silver accents in my guest bedroom, a large framed mirror and pewter bedside lamp and a silver finish oversized reading lamp. I must admit I love the first image but my home will only take small amounts of bling. However, there is some in every room in my house in some form or other.

  2. Oh my gosh, i love them all. The room in the first photo is so yummy... the gold and silver are just perfect... and I have saved the third photo on my Pinterest board. I love the rustic and wood with the silver trays. One of my favorites...


    1. I agree, those trays look great and a fabulous way of displaying a vintage collection. The first image is my favourite, it seems to have the right balance of bling :)
