The chrome trend, which made a big splash at New York Fashion Week, is not just for clothing. Design experts suggest bringing metallic hues inside of the home as well. A metallic design scheme can give a space both a modern metropolitan look and a more traditional industrial vibe. Tailor your decorating scheme to create the ideal ambiance for your own home or apartment.
Are you going for a sleek city motif? Consider updating your bedding and other linens from cotton to a shiny silver or gold. Satin sheets were once thought of as a thing of the past, but the trend is definitely back. Once you're comfortable adding metallic accents, you can start experimenting with chrome more freely. If you really love shine, try painting a room in your house with metallic paint. You may even consider keeping your walls white and stenciling a design with silver or gold enamel. Additionally, a deep silver or gold drape will really make your room come together.
If you favor a more traditional approach, then try an industrial theme in your home. This look is especially relevant for a living room or office. To evoke tradition, try adding metal accessories or trinkets throughout your home. For instance, cast-iron accessories are a great addition.
"[Industrial] doesn't have to mean cold. Iron accents, for instance, actually complement warm woods," reports LancasterOnline.com.
When choosing drapes to go with this motif, stay away from too much shine and focus your attention on more rustic metallic shades. Regardless if you are going for a modern metropolitan mood, or a traditional industrial tone, browse the selection of Half Price Drape's silk drapes and curtains today.
