Taking its cue from fashion, metallics like gold, copper and brass make stunning accent pieces when styled correctly. To add sophistication to a space, go for highlights like a gold tray, a mirror or picture frame with gold edging or a vase. Working well with almost any colour, this warm hue is the perfect accent in our Milton design.
Milton is a luxurious geometric patterned rug that is classical with a hint of modern. The diamond art silk designs in this hand knotted wool rug resemble traditional tiles, adding to its elegance.
Try to stick to two or three touches of gold in a room otherwise it will be overwhelming and take on a more gaudy look instead. Or consider using the 60-30-10 ratio rule with the 10% of a room’s colour being the accent colour.
Popular colour palettes to try with metallics include the blush pink and grey Scandinavian style, the sumptuous 20s and 30s art deco interior or a modern space with a mix of earthy tones and touches of greenery.
