Using homeware items with a metallic sheen to them will offer a striking look to any interior. When positioned creatively around the home, gold, copper and brass accented products bring out the depth of a room like nothing else. Here are a few items available at Homecolours that we feel will strike precisely the right not when looking to add another dimension to your home furnishings.
In the bedroom, metal effect objects offer a lovely detailing of luxury. Capable of bringing out a finery and specificity of purpose, metallics often appear even more striking in contrast to a pale or neutral wall colour.
The above Button Alarm Clock by Karlsson is coloured in brass and provides a strong presence in the room. Looking distinguished and comforting on a bedroom table or counter, the clock can be set to 12 or 24 hour formats. The clock is safely positioned on small feet, making the whole item secure and well balanced. A snooze button on the top of the clock brings out maximum control of your time, and how long you want to wait before you get up!
Lighting products are another area that benefits greatly for the metallic effect. The balance of light and metal goes back to the dawn of time, with fiery smelting of metals the key to much of humanity's technological progress. And as something that not only harks back to world-changing scientific achievement, but also looks great in the living room, what's not to like?
The above Brass Circle Lampshade from Frama is part of the company's aim to combine technologically advanced materials with a keen eye for style and design. This shade is ideal for use with an LED light bulb, and can be relied upon all over the home. Whether it's in the lounge, kitchen or outdoor garage, the lampshade adds metallic class to anywhere its needed.
It doesn't get much more workaday than a home pedal bin, but even the most basic of objects can look distinctly smart when a metallic coat is added to the whole structure.
The Zone Denmark Silver Pedal Bin is part of the label's Barcelona range, and brings in a great soft-touch coating of silver effect. Brilliant for bringing out a complimentary harmonising of contemporary style, the Pedal Bin has been optimised with soft-motion technology. This allows the steel lid to move up ad down silently and without any undue effort. Completely hygenic, and wonderfully modern, the pedal bin is another great example of metallics in effect at home.
