We at MDG have once again found ourselves agreeing with Jack Sparrow that rules are more like guidelines. We are maybe not even surprised that sometimes from the unheard of arises the no-brainer. Not only is pizza better with Ranch dressing, but we are also mixing metals in our interiors. Rose gold and chrome, yellow gold and silver, the possibilities are endless. Well, within reason. Below, you'll find some of our favorite tips for mixing metals.
1) Choose one metal as dominate and one as an accent. If you're unsure of the ratio, 70/30 might be a good place to start. A warm metal, like brass or gold, is a bold pop of color with cool metals like silver.
2) Mix your textures, too! Antiqued gold compliments sleek chrome and matte silver pairs with hammered copper.
3) If you're worried about mixing metals and textures with other colors and patterns in the rest of the room, start with making metals the focus and decorate the rest of the room in neutrals.
