When buying jewelry, one of the considerations is to decide if you are going to wear gold, silver, or platinum. This is the chemical element that holds the precious jewels on the setting together. So when creating a design for your interior using the proper amount of element in it is the difference between making something look too gaudy or very valuable. Metallic objects as they pertain to interior spaces can be the highlight of the floor plan because they create hierarchy among everything else. Use too much in one space and they loose their value and become ostentatious. The key to a successful design is to create in a simplistic manor. During the traditional Renaissance times, ornamental embellishments in interiors where dripping with gold leaf designs to show status of wealth. Although this look still pertains in some interior design movements, most individuals tend to lean towards a more contemporary way of thinking by using metallics to highlight other colors in the room.
Metallics are very influential with the creators of art, fashion and interiors. This is why we are seeing them in our everyday trends. From purses to pillows, the contemporary accent is what keeps our eye moving through the composition of a design which is one of the most important elements to creating whether it is art or interior spaces.
So, How do I create a tasteful interior which uses metallics?
One of the key aspects to creating an interior design is to keep things simple. If you are someone who loves metallic objects and wants to see them everywhere then make it the dominate part of your scheme. This can be achieved by using metallics as one of the major players in the room, such as: sofa, tables, even walls and floors.
If you prefer “just a touch” then place metallics in your artwork, pillows, and accessories. This will give you a contemporary flare without being too overwhelmed.
