Metal is hot. More furniture comes in gold, silver, platinum, brass or copper colors. We have already in recent years mixed gold and silver in our jewelry. Now you can do it also in your furniture and furnishings, , never fear, it’s in! You can have a coffee table with gold paint or in gold colored metal, and you can mix it with side tables with a silver finish. You can have brass accessories on a copper colored table. Crate and Barrel came out with advertising for cutlery in various colors. What if you mixed the various metals, wouldn’t that be fun?
Furniture in metal paint or actual metal in any room in your house:
For instance, this Bernhardt bedroom is all in gold color, very contemporary, nail heads and all. And see the room walls, they are very traditional. And yet, it works well together. Then, also from Bernhardt, there is this extraordinary coffee table and well as the arm chair and the side table wrapped in nickel plated brass.

Ralph Lauren sticks to Blue: Everyone loves blue. So here you can see that all kinds of patterns work together. This is n juxtaposition to clean and contemporary. I find we are moving more and more towards two opposite ends: The Bohemian and the Sleek Contemporary. See below.
The same collection – Capriccio – has very traditional tile shapes in it. See this beauty:
All the rage – Brushed Metal Sheers, sooo beautiful!
Ann Sachs sent out some inspiration, reminding us that they have beautiful tile. Look at this spectacular collage. It was actually one long picture, but I had to cut it into two halves.
