Lately, I have been thinking about the mixing of different metal tones in a room; gold with silver, brass with chrome etc.
Some say "it's a don't", some say " the right space, with the right pieces", others say "totally!"

I have collected a few images that showcase the mixing of metals in various rooms in the home.
I personally love the idea. It's less contrived and gives a space the feeling that it has been carefully edited, collected and built over time.  It's fresh and relaxed. I am a brass/gold girl at the moment, but I am seriously considering an over sized chrome task lamp that I spotted over the weekend.

Have a look...
