Interior Trends: Metallic Hues

Trend: Metallic Hues

The Scoop: From cladding buildings to intricate interior touches, designers use metallics as neutrals to playfully mix metals to produce warm, sophisticated designs. The key is to find balance without overwhelming a space. From the metal lighting and accents of the industrial chic shared office space Neuehouse in New York City to the touching use of aluminum in the National September 11th Memorial highlighting where the North Tower once stood, the subtlety of metallic hues bring richness to every project.

From the Pros:”The most exciting trend in design right now is definitely the use of metallic finishes. Brushed Gold(!), bronze, and copper are showing up on furniture, plumbing fixtures, and wall coverings and sure to add a dramatic pop in any space. The challenge in implementing them is not going overboard. You want to make sure that your metallic are accenting and adding value to your color story, and not taking over.” -Brandi Meyers, Designer, HPA Design Group

“Mixing metals is one of the most exciting design trends we are currently seeing. Similar to jewelry in the fashion industry, designers have started incorporating a combination of metals in interior finishes such as lighting, plumbing, appliances, and hardware. The look is achieved by using one metal as a dominant and an alternate metal as an accent. One of the challenges with this design trend is finding the right combination of metals to work with the other colors and design elements in the space. The mixed metals should create a visual impact without influencing the overall look.” -Lauren Brewer, Designer, HPA Design Group
