For those who are passionate about luxury interiors and glamorous home decor, there’s no such thing as “too much” when incorporating shiny things. Just a touch of glimmering metal can make a space infinitely and instantly more glamorous. Boca do Lobo has collected some design inspirations for this fall winter according to metal trends. Read on and find out 4 Secrets to Decorate With Metal This Fall.
1. Soften it out…
The trick with using metallic pieces and mirrors in a single space is to mix them with different, softer textures to balance them out. Try to combine different textures like mohair, velvet, and wool to let the metallic accents contrast and stand out on their own

2. Keep the palette neutral
When incorporating a lot of metallic pieces into a room, you’ll want to keep the color scheme fairly subdued. Brass pairs nicely with darker colors such as black, navy and even purple or other jewel tones, while chrome, stainless and satin go nicely with more modern palettes such as gray, white and blue.
3. Mix it up!
It’s an age-old design debate, but mixing metals and finishes can be done to a stylish effect. But generally speaking, you’ll want to use the same color metal (for example, gold) in different textures or finishes (polished brass, brushed brass, gold leaf, etc.). Mixing chrome with other silver metals such as brushed nickel or satin nickel, is another way to go.
4. Stick with the classics
Although copper is having a moment in kitchens and lighting right now — it’s especially cool in a hammered texture- brass, chrome, silver or gold leaf are timeless!
5. Start small
Accessories are the best way to introduce metallics into your space. They’re easy to change out or move around the room to find the perfect balance. More permanent pops of metallic can also be incorporated in small doses.
Metal details can reflect light and many times open up a space. And they almost always give a dull space a more interesting and unexpected touch. So, take a chance on it!
