Various shades of gold exude luxury without feeling stuffy in this sophisticated study.

Master Bedroom Metals

A stunning metallic headboard is a focal point in this regal bedroom, but warm gold accents on the mirror and pillows add a luxe touch.

Something Shiny

In this dreamy living room, a black and white backdrop sets the stage for an eclectic mix of metallic accessories.

Silver and Gold

In an elegant breakfast nook where silver is the star, a warm gold light fixture offers a captivating contrast.

Rustic Meets Glam

A delicate chandelier and arched gold mirror show off the sophisticated side of this charming dining room that features a wooden table and industrial metal chairs.

Extravagant Details

It's the small details, like the fur throw, gold lamp and bronze ottoman, that create a subtle look of opulence in this stunning bedroom.

Bring It All In

To create a layered look that screams "designer," consider mixing metals along with textiles and patterns. In this bedroom, metallics, wood and even velvet come together for the perfect blend of style and sophistication.

Testing the Water

For those wary of mixing gold and silver, a great alternative that looks equally chic is the marriage of gold and gray accents, as seen in this gorgeous home office.

Keep It Fun

For a playful touch in this adorable kids' bathroom, a beautiful toile-patterned wallpaper is accented by a gold mirror and silver light fixture.

Elegant Surprise

A metallic backsplash and dazzling brass faucet and drawer pulls add an unexpected hint of glam to one of the most functional rooms in the home.

Separate Spaces

In this adorable home, the kitchen and dining rooms use different metals to set each space apart. While the kitchen features stainless steel appliances, the cozier dining room blends warmer metals for a softer look.

Surprise Style

Just as this living room unexpectedly marries modern and French-country designs, gold and silver furnishings come together for a decidedly fresh style.

Antique Inspiration

A neutral color palette allows the metallic accents to shine in this gorgeous, vintage-inspired bedroom. Ornate mirrors, simple bronze lamps and a stunning silver chandelier look polished in this decadent space.

Light Layers

Just as the dual tones of gold add depth to the frame in this neutral bathroom, layering different shades of the same metal can create a much more interesting design.

Obvious Pairing

A gold tray on the industrial trunk coffee table makes mixing metal a purposeful endeavor that adds a hint of playfulness in this eclectic space.

Make It Shine

Though subtle, this lovely cooking space is filled with shiny surprises, including several mixed metals and a backsplash with mother-of-pearl insets.

All in the Accents

A flashy fusion of gold and silver, this jewel-toned living room oozes opulence at every angle.

Any Color Goes

Depending on the viewer's angle, these gorgeous light fixtures may look gold, silver or a mix of the two, proving that mixing metals is a look that goes with anything.

Color + Pattern

Designer Jennifer Jones isn't afraid to mix patterns, so why not mix metals, too? Chrome and brass come together in this tasteful living room for a well-blended look that ties the space together.

Pretty Puzzling

Every shade in every way, this stylish metallic backsplash mixes various metal pieces in different directions, resembling a chic puzzle.
