It's 2013, but that doesn't mean we can't go back to the days of heavy metal.
No, we're not talking about teased hair and acid washed jeans. We mean interior design. Metallic is a popular trend this year, showing up everywhere from the New York Fashion Week runway to the home sector. This trend reflects an upscale Metropolitan look, dating back all the way to ancient Greece and Rome.
"When you think about it, ancient Greeks and Romans fashioned metal into beautiful things, so why not take a hint from the days of empire?" news source Lancaster.com states.
There are many ways in which you can use metallic accents in your Milwaukee home or apartment. The style is applicable to any room in your house. The metallic trend doesn't necessarily have to be overwhelming. In fact, many traditional items, such as a couch or a chair, can sport the look with a metal trim. Expert designers suggest starting small with metal accent pieces throughout your home.
If, like many homeowners, you are a true fan of the chrome look, then expand this feature throughout your whole interior. Custom bedding and curtains are a great way to achieve this chic style. Switch up both items from traditional drab colors to incorporate modern silver, gold, or bronze.
