Birthday’s are the time of year to celebrate and to shine like gold. Over the years, there will be golden birthday’s and reasons to celebrate each an everyday, being able to show it through our homes gives us great surroundings to succeed.
In decorating, metallics, or colors that mimic them, can be a unique and glamorous touch because they simulate precious jewels and metals and bring a sense of value and prestige. You can go all out and be a true queen of your castle or add touches of elegance to break up a masculine space. Adding a touch of sparkle to your space can be both bold and subtle in your choices.
For a bold, metallic look, use a big piece in the space that causes a big impact visually. A platinum window treatment in the bedroom with a glamorous headboard feature will make a huge statement. It gives a sense of grandeur and elegance, showing you matter. Of course, there can be many variations to customize it to your own style, but still achieve that fabulous look you desire. These decisions do require more consideration, which lead to these helpful tips of the week:
- When purchasing a piece, be sure you love the colour, style, and effect it will have in the space. Whether focal or not, it’s a three-way to take into reason when decorating.
- Pieces should be investments. While styles may chance, try to select a major piece that will be able to adjust to your changing times with little or moderate adjustments, such as accessories or paint colours.
For a subtle effect, metallic can be smaller pieces, or footprints, that would fit into your shopping cart. These can still create an impressive impact regardless of their size. Adding gold metallic pillows on your bed add shimmer to a place that is a focal point of your day. This difference will bring a new feeling to a place where a lot of fun happens, as well as rest.
Another way is to purchase a new piece of art with metallic accents to sparkle up your walls. These touches will still give a big impact, but aren’t held to the same standard as the bold option because these touches can easily be circulated or arranged to achieve different looks for a more affordable look. This is a popular option when walls can’t be painted or major changes can’t be made, like in rental condos or apartments.
Whether you prefer the bold or subtle option, designing with gold and metallic can bring new life and vibrancy to your space and give it a new feeling. Everyone deserves the right to feel special and having a space that brings joy in big or little ways can make all the difference. Little things that bring joy to a positive environment are important and should be treasured. Bring home a little jewel for your place and making it sparkle, just like you!
