INTERIOR TRENDS: with Amanda Niell
Home Décor colour and trends often follow fashion trends and vice versa. This month Amanda Neill, leading Auckland Interior Designer looks at one of the hottest trends right now – Metallics and how you can make this trend work in your home.
Decadent gold, bronze, silver and nickel, are colours and finishes that are big in 2014. They bring warmth, glamour and regality to any interior that would be difficult to achieve by using their matt counterparts. We are seeing a huge range of products becoming available in these finishes, especially during these colder winter months. They reflect light and just about anything and everything goes when it comes to metals in home décor.
Once you embrace your favourite sheen, why not find ways to use it with your current decor. You can mix metals of different shades in the same space together, bronze and silver can sit comfortably beside each other. When you mix metallics with natural elements, you can layer the look and create balance which will keep the metallic from feeling overdone. Metals look gorgeous with natural elements so mix them together to soften the space.
At Designworx our feature metallic is bronze and we have a range of products available in this finish to suit any home. Check out some of our products on the page or come in to see us in the showroom to find out more.
