From couture gowns to beauty products to interiors, the UK is all about metallics right now! Ellie Saab, Valentino and Jean Paul Gaultier were just a few designers to feature metallic gowns in their collections this A/W. This has filtered through to beauty products such as gold lip colors and nails that look like polished silver.
Of course the trend hasn’t stopped there and we are seeing some beautiful metallic pieces for the home as well as, in my opinion, rather questionable sparkly wallpaper and paint! The great thing about metallics is that a little is enough and a lot, when done properly, can look spectacularly glamorous. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite metallic pieces and designs for the home this season. Hope you like them too!
Not only is Kelly Hoppen celebrating 40 years in interior design this year she is also celebrating metallics with new items in her home accessories collection such as the Aspen vase featured above.
Industrial style copper pendant lighting has made a massive impact on the market over the last couple of years and it seems they are here to stay with many reinventions of the style this A/W. A much more subtle design is the one above by Dwell. All year we have seen variations of the style with the interior of the lamp being the ‘metallic’ element but the hammered copper design inside these pendants really caught my eye.
If you are looking to add drama and glamour to your space then metallics are an easy way to do it. This center table is a piece of artwork as well as a functional item and whats more luxurious than gold?!
So, feeling brave? Then go all out and install a metallic kitchen! I think this is stunning and creates such a dramatic impression as well as serving a purpose. Just look at the way the light bounces around the small space making it feel much bigger and brighter.
Hopefully we’ve inspired you to add a touch of metallic glamour to your home during the gloomy winter months. Whether you introduce small pieces which will catch your eye or statement pieces which will have your guests swooning…just have fun!
