Add sparkle and glamour to your home with metal.

The unparalleled beauty of a mirrored table is that it reflects what is placed on the surface. This lovely Erinn Valencich vignette — comprised of a distinctive sculpture, a fresh flower arrangement and an exquisite lamp — can be seen from many angles. Beauty, multiplied!
An ideal place to incorporate silver is in the dining room and adjoining spaces. The trick is to use it sparingly as Ammie Kim has done here with silver flatware, oversized lamps and candlesticks.
Hall of Gold
This hallway received the gold treatment with sparkling granite wallcoverings. Italian glass, polished river rock and onyx accents add to the lush look. Design by Shelly Riehl-David.
Too much stainless steel can look stark and industrial. Architect Felicia Ferrone warmed up this contemporary kitchen with organic elements including a wood table and floors and a large bamboo centerpiece.
Asian Meets Golden
For an Asian bedroom, opt for an infusion of gold. Warm it up with rich woods, black accents and pops of red. Design by Dawn Pratt.
Stainless Steel With Style
This powder room by designer Lori Dennis was an exercise in feng shui. She incorporated wood, water, metal, fire and earth for a balanced, beautiful bathroom. The stainless sink, faucet and coordinating mirror make a stellar design statement.
Placing an oversized mirror in an entryway is both stylish and practical. Choose one with a chunky, metallic frame, and your entry is dressed to impress. Design by Baylor Anne Bone.
