Mixing metals and other metallic shades is one of the easiest ways to incorporate a touch of depth, sophistication and visual interest into an interior.   When combining metals, select a dominant metal finish in a space then choose one or two metal accents to complete a look.

Choose a color palette and pair warm hues with warm metals (gold, brass, nickel) and cool hues with cool metals (silver and chrome).   For a texture appeal, utilize matte, polished, or a hammered finish to create a visually rich atmosphere.   Look at the hanging lights above the kitchen waterfall island.

Tip: Iron is the neutral of the metallic world because it doesn’t clash with other metals.   Place an overhead lighting chandelier for a Medieval or a Modern touch to an area, and you can use iron throughout the space.
