Metallic decor is one of the hottest trends of the year–glinting tones of brass, rose gold, and nickel have become popular choices for everything from fixtures, to wallpaper, to textiles and more. It also happens to be one of our favorite trends in recent years, simply because of the versatility of metallic decor–it can add a sense of dimension, texture, and luxury to virtually any space, and it can be easily layered to scale the overall effect from subtle to bold.
Below, we’re sharing three spaces that show off the beauty of metallic decor, plus picks to get the look at home.
The Glamorous Look
This room–which is actually the living room of singer Jennifer Lopez, featured in Veranda Magazine–is a perfect example of how chic a mixed metallic look can be. The oversized silver lamp and gold tone end tables are echoed by velvet upholstery pieces in similar tones, which give off a sheen that also feels almost metallic.

The Bright Angle
Brass and gold tones are the perfect complement for bright hues and equally bright whites, as proven by this punchy living room. The combination creates a preppy, Palm-beach vibe that immediately feels cheerful.

The Eclectic Approach
Gold tones are also perfectly at home in a more eclectic space. Here, they act not so much as a glamorous element, but as a point of contrast to the dark grays and cool white tones. The antique brass frames also lend character and patina to the gallery wall, which balances out the more modern elements of the space.
