While mixed metals have been dominating the fashion scene for quite some time, this twinkling trend has also made its way into interior design. Whether you’re looking to illuminate your living room or bring polish to your kitchen, the look of mixed metallics can easily bring an edgy and modernized effect to your home. For Fall 2016, leave the sweet pastels of summertime far behind, and go for the gold, copper and silver with this stylish décor trend.

Brighten a white open concept kitchen with metallic touches: If your space is a vast expanse of ivory shelving, wall shelves and sparkling white countertops, metal hints can easily complete the look. Turn to photo frames, trinkets and fruit bowls, in every metallic hue from gold to silver.

Decorate your dining room with dangling lighting and mixed metal chairs: While the traditional wooden dining table may be a mainstay, you can always incorporate trendy mixed metal seating for a final touch. The effect of shining golden and copper chairs can instantly elevate your classic dining room to an entirely new level. Meanwhile, a funky glass chandelier, textured grey accent walls and a neutral area rug wrap up your statement.

Incorporate shiny mirrors into your living room: A basic living room adorned with dove grey sofas, white chairs and light hardwood flooring can be brought to life with shimmering surfaces. Keeping in line with the mixed metals trend, a bold rectangular mirror in shades of silver and gold helps to impart futuristic charm at home.
