I know you will love their selection as much as I do, so read on for their best tips on mixing metals in lighting!
Mixed metals are one of interior design’s newest trends. The juxtaposition between two different metals adds more personality, warmth and dimension to your space. We want to share with you the top three mixed metal combinations right now and why we love them.
- Black and Brass: Bold brass lighting and hardware have been wildly popular for the past few seasons, and we love the way it instantly brings warmth to a space. But as of late, a new trend is emerging: matte black metals. This dark-to-black metal trend feels fresh while still having a nod to classic design and looks crisp and clean, through creating a sharper contrast. Black metals are versatile and complement all other metal tones, making them easy to work with. Two toned brass and black lighting is an excellent way to bring both of these popular looks into your home, giving you that striking contrast you’re wanting as well as warmth. Here’s a roundup of our favorite brass + black lights:
- Bronze and Brass: If you love the latest black and brass trend but all of your hardware and plumbing are bronze, a bronze and brass fixture is an awesome alternative. Not to mention a bit more timeless. A traditional bronze finish is complemented beautifully by the warmth of the brass, and this combination gives you a classic look with some trendy edge. Check out these bronze + brass crowd pleasers guaranteed to upgrade your home:
- Matte Black and Nickel: Nickel and Chrome are the most widely-used metal finishes and the safest, in our opinion. Chrome blends nicely with your stainless appliances, grey-to-white counters and white-on-white cabinetry and décor. The newly emerging matte black metal trend is a beautiful upgrade to the traditional nickel fixture, giving it more boldness and contrast while still keeping the super sleek, modern feel. Here are a few of our top Matte Black and Nickel lights that will give you a safe metal option along with a touch of on-trend style.
