4 New Ways to Decorate with Silver & Gold

Silver & gold are holiday classics, yet these colors can work no matter what the season is. Check out four new ways to decorate with the gilded hues:

Metallic Tiles

Actual metal or mirrored tiles can be quite expensive and difficult to install. Save money by opting for a trompe l’oeil wallpaper that mimics the look. Cole & Son’s version has a gorgeous reflectiveness and is inspired by mirrors in the  baroque headquarters of King William III at Hampton Court palace. Accent this luxurious look with a warm shade of velvet and a rococo-esque floral damask fabric.

Mix Styles

Pairing unexpected, relaxed styles with sumptuous gold patterns is an updated way to go metallic. We like the rustic charm of plaid paired with an elaborate gilded damask. Tie the two contrasting design traits together by choosing a plaid with hints of tan (non-metallic) in the same shade as the damask.

Monochromatic Metallics

Last week we showed you that the monochromatic trend is back in fashion. Here, we see it done in a fabulously modernized way by using metallic fabrics on every surface. From the silver grasscloth walls to the gleaming damask silk pillows and mirrored furniture, this room has embellished elements of art deco and elegance all at once.

On the Ceiling

A touch of gold on the ceiling takes a room from casual to impressive in one fell swoop. We like it done in a texture to add depth to the room, but it looks just as beautiful in a solid sheen. Try it with a light turquoise grasscloth wallpaper and a mix of ornate and modern wall decorations.
