Decorate with precious metals

  • Metallics are almost as versatile as your favourite neutrals, but boy do they add some impact. Accessories in metallic shades are hugely popular and therefore easy to find – choose shimmering cushions and light fittings for an easy way to achieve opulence. If silver is your preferred metal, use grey as a base colour on walls – it’s not a metallic, but it takes on that quality when combined with sheeny buys. Grey furniture is also the way to go – the plush sleigh bed and footstool are the perfect complement to this decadent look. Sparkly wallpaper is fabulous, too, and using symmetrically placed strips is an innovative way to create a feature that won’t dominate.
