Your shoes and bag should match, never wear black with brown or navy, don’t wear more than one pattern, don’t mix metals – some rules are made to be broken! Incorporating a range of colours and textures to your home or wardrobe can be a lot of fun. Here are some tips and tricks to mixing metals in your home and with your outfit.

Playing dress up

Stackable jewellery is a popular trend at the moment. Stacking your rings, layering multiple pendants or wearing multiple studs is a great way to look feminine and effortless while still making a statement and looking cool and chic. 

When shopping for rings, be sure to pick out dainty thin bands in a range of metals. If you want to mix it up a bit, play with texture – find a twisted ring, a plain one, and one that has a pattern etched into it. When you’re feeling more bold, find statement rings in a range of metals with different gems and design features on each one. 

You can even find some lovely pieces, such as necklaces and bracelets, that weave together mixed metals for a distinctive look.

Home sweet home

Metal pieces throughout your home can make for striking decor. Brass light fixtures, nickel faucets and chrome kitchen appliances are all wonderful additions to your home.

In fact, your lighting is a great opportunity to add metal to your home. If you want a more industrial space, a stand alone lamp with a big shade along with a golden coffee table bowl or vase is a cool option. Alternatively, if you’re after a vintage look, find a golden gilded mirror, a silver chandelier and fill a cabinet with antique jars, jugs and goblets.
