Metallic Home Décor Ideas
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.

For a Glam Style
Play up the polish with striking high-gloss metals. They draw the eye and bounce around light. Gold, silver, copper, and brass blend nicely, as long as the lines of each piece are sleek. If they’re more ornate, stick with just one color of metal.

A daring matte-and-shine mash-up feels fresh and FUN. Stick with light, airy pieces—an open pendant, a wire table—so the effect is clean rather than chaotic.
