Get a Little Gleam On.


This interior, sourced by Fameed Khalique is a lovely example of where metallics are going these days. Metallics are developing natural shapes echoing nature, or enhancing natural objects like abalone, coral and gold encrusted geodes.


Most of all, distressed metallic leather and suede is everywhere.




Last week while shopping it seemed every other woman had on those fabulous metallic booties from Rag and Bone or metallic knee high Prada boots.


The key to the current metallic trend, whether it is in clothing or decor is texture.


 Walls look great with a distressed metallic treatment and create instant drama.


Architectural Digest shows us linen walls covered with  metallic paint, an easy look to emulate that looks fresh, current and most importantly...warm. The new textured metallics invite us to touch them, invoking a feeling of sensualness that is not hard or cold like the metal trends of times past.


With the cooler weather setting in, what better time to get a little gleam on?
