Expert advice to smooth the way, from San Francisco interior designer Kimberly Ayres and New York City wallpaper master Al Hoxha.
For an Earthy Style
Keep things understated with matte or textured metals. Pieces with a soft finish (brushed, hammered, rippled) are a delicious
addition to a rustic room. You can freely combine tones—copper, gold, silver—as long as you follow the matte rule. Muted rugs
and pillows with a light metallic touch are also right at home amid earthy furnishings.
