Spy our edit of the high-street's take on the current metallic trend
From major high-street brands to boutique online shops, it’s hard to miss the influx of cool metallic shades this season. So to get the luxe look for less, here’s a round-up the best bronze, silver and gold that the high-street has to offer – plus top tips for how to achieve an opulent scheme at home:
1. Choose a statement accessory
Adorned with a statement leaf print, this artisan light from Marks & Spencer is an instant way to add a sense of opulence to your scheme.

2. Keep it simple
Team gold lettering with an understated monochrome print to give the metallic trend an effortless modern update, à la Sarah & Bendrix.

3. Make a gesture
A little nod to the trend is sometimes all you need – try a subtly painted gold foot for an easy-to-live-with option from The Letteroom. Tip: emphasise the metallic accent with a cool matching clock.

4. Create a centrepiece
A selection of shimmering copper and gold trays from Oliver Bonas instantly breathes life into monochrome furniture, so try arranging a few side by side for an unusual centrepiece. Like what you see? Check out its new Luxe collection of gold and marble furniture, too.

5. Add shimmer to a sultry scheme
Pairing cool copper with moody hues brings a sense of dark glamour to the new Luna range from George. Try injecting pops of white to give the scheme a little lift.

6. Take a little, take a lot…
Because it works brilliantly either as an accent piece or as a whole collection, take your pick from the new Alana collection at Made (or if you’re feeling greedy, go for the lot!)
