My Little "Blurb" on HGTV.com...
Blogger / writer Melisa of the blog the lil bee was so kind to ask me to contribute to an article she was recently assigned for HGTV.com. The topic: Accessorize with Metallics. I was thrilled, of course, to throw in my two cents on the topic :) Here's a sneak peak of the article...
For a touch of glam in a living room or bedroom, Julie Thigpen of design firm Modern Chic Home suggests approaching the task as if picking out jewelry: "the right piece should complete your look," not compete with it. She used shimmery capiz shells to separate a client's seating area from the adjacent office and placed a gold sculpture on top of a metallic framed cocktail table. Like a chain mail necklace or statement ring, both pieces complemented an otherwise classic room without competing for attention. Photo courtesy of Julie Thigpen :)
In addition the the HGTV gallery, I pulled a few more images from Living Etc. that show other creative ways to incorporate metallics into the home. What are some of your tips on this topic? Please share!
Have a great weekend! Don't forget to enter to win a Happy Chic book from Jonathan Adler...winner will be announced on Monday! xoxo - Julie
