Apartment inspiration…Mixing Metallics

While I am getting all settled in I’m finding that I’m perplexed as to where to my put things. I want to shake things up a bit in my new space and I think mixing metallics is just the way to do it. I have been inspired lately by overseas decor, especially Parisian and London apartments. They mix metallics with no abandon.
Most things that I really want I cant find in the states. I have to shop abroad, which is kind of annoying. I like to find things from mydeals (UK version) and sometimes ebay can really work too. Have you guys ever tried to buy anything overseas? When I went on my trip to Paris in November, I wanted to buy everything and ship it back but… it’s quite difficult, no?
Ah, but the findings are oh so dreamy…

  1. I agree, metallics can be great and really add such style and warmth to a room. In grand large rooms going all out can be perfect to really pull a room design together and add warmth, with smaller rooms or rooms that are darker, you can add some beautiful pieces that are delicately edged in a metallic, just to give it a lift and stop it being hidden away, but without the piece overpowering a design – like the stunning example you show with the white side table edged in gold :O)
