Go for Gold with this year’s Metallic Trend


July 2019

From mirrored furniture to shiny metal lamps, metallic shades are having a moment. What was once an expensive interior trend has quickly become a common sight adopted by popular Instagram bloggers like Mrs Hinch.

You’ll see it everywhere, taking a hold of your Pinterest feed or covering the shelves of home-ware stores there are even rose gold cleaning products on the market! It’s easy to see why it’s such a popular trend, whether you go bold with gold or have a subtle silver sheen, adding a shimmering touch to your space is guaranteed to give you a style update.

A perk of using metallic in your home is the ability to match, so you won’t need a complete design overhaul to get some shiny shades in your space. If your home already has warm accents like ochre or orange use a silver shade to cool them down while injecting a grown up vibe into your space. If you have a dark room you can brighten it up with gold hues which work particularly well with deep navy blues, and if you’re feeling particularly risky, black.

Get on board the ‘grey house’ trend, Instagram bloggers have been turning their homes grey, with carpets, furniture and wallpaper all mirroring the ashy shade. If you’re a fan of the minimalist style use a sparkling silver to stay uniform with this monochromatic tone and add a touch of glamour to your home. If you’re not fully committed to the one colour but like the sleek minimalism of the Grey Trend then use warm gold or copper tones to break up the room and inject an air of luxury.

The metallic style isn’t just for contemporary interiors. This season we’re loving the use of pastel palettes, paired with metallic accents for maximum levels of enduring style. One of our favourite matches this season is pale pink and gold, match statement pink furniture with gold accessories like side tables or gold-trimmed mirrors. Mixing shiny shades with pale pastels can offer an updated twist on timeless Art Deco design, so if you’re a fan of all things vintage, this trend is perfect for you.

While your room is shining with glittering accents there is no reason why your floor should stay dull, modern techniques in producing yarn has allowed us to make different ranges of rugs all with a metallic twist.

For ultimate levels of luxury try our new Venezia range, in Gold, Silver and Bronze. The abstract metallic design is perfect for creating a subtle statement that screams sophistication, while the low pile and polypropylene composition allow it to stay looking fancy in busy homes.

If you’re after a timeless classic, try our V&A Zelda, the lustrous yarns give an understated twist to the metallic trend, while the hand carved design nods towards a luxurious Art Deco feel.

For something to sink your feet into try Dazzle. Strands of lurex glitter within the thick and thin yarns of this super soft shaggy rug, making it the perfect option for some subtle metallic action. Our latest colour Midnight Blue gives a grown-up twist to this playful rug.
