Metallic trend popular for fall

There's no place like chrome.

Metallic and chrome hues are showing up all over the home sector, from furniture to linens. This hot design trend creates a hip "metropolitan" look for homeowners in both the city and suburbs alike. The style is also a great mix between youth and maturity.

"Thirty- and 40-somethings are liking the metropolitan look," design consultant Tina Eichelberger tells LancasterOnline.com. Young professionals and those just starting a family find the metallic trend a great transition from their bachelor pads to a shared space. The great thing about metallic hues is that they are unisex and can be both masculine and stylish if used correctly.

So what colors should you choose?

"As far as metallics, we're seeing coppers, oil-rubbed bronze, matte and silver (finishes), but not shiny gold," Eichelberger tells the news site. Gold, when used in the interior design sector, is likely to be more rustic than bright so it doesn't appear tacky.

And where should you add metallic flair? As we mentioned before, the trend is popular in various spaces in the home, ranging from the bedroom to the bathroom. Some homeowners decide to make the switch from cotton to silver satin sheets. Others incorporate the trend within their dining room, from tables to stylish place mats. We suggest adding metallic to your living room to create a chic space. Using metallic window fashions can give any home a sleek finish.
