Merry metallic Christmas

19 December, 2015

Mixed metallic microtrends have taken over our homes in the last few years – from exposed beams and steel girding to metallic wallpaper and fabrics, the metallic look is everywhere. Deriving from Scandi industrial chic trend, the modern metallic look is all about mixing contemporary storage solutions with some ornamental factory-esque lighting.

Here we explore how to bring the modern metal trend into your home this Christmas.

Burnt metals

Metallic accessories can completely transform the look and feel of your space, and burnt metals like copper and rose gold can complement countless interior design styles. Using copper wire is totally on trend, and adding in some copper wire candle holders to your dining table brings a little Christmas festivity to the table. Other burnt materials like rose gold look particularly beautiful paired with white materials – update your kitchen with touches of rose gold and porcelain to bring even more festive cheer to your Christmas Day. For a look that can last all year round, bring copper elements into your home to create a stunning feature wall. Photowall’s wall mural depicts the beautiful colour produced by the oxidisation of copper – the perfect hue to add a flash of colour without making too much of a statement.

Moody blues and brass

Navy blue was the rich shade of 2015, and while we predict that these shades will stay, brass is also set to become a bigger feature in interior design next year. So, channel moody blues paired with unfinished brass elements – it’ll be sure to keep you ahead of the curve this Christmas. Geometric brass decorations are totally on trend and the perfect accessory for your Christmas tree, but also great for decorative features all year round – and you can have fun creating a modern take on bunting when the decs come down.


Cast iron and crisp white

It’s true, monochrome is having a moment, but how can you add this trend into your home over the Christmas period? You’re definitely spoilt for choice when it comes to monochrome home accessories, especially during the festive season. There’s been a whole host of seasonal accessories hitting the high street this year and here’s how you can channel the trend. Monochrome baubles are a great addition to your tree if you only want touches of the trend. Alternatively, you can get the look all year round – Photowall’s Darwin on a plate features everything fabulous about the monochrome trend in just one wallpaper. The use of black and white create depth, allowing you to make your room appear bigger.
