24. Mixed Metals
With natural-looking metals like nickel, iron, bronze, and more having a significant comeback, 2021 will be the perfect year to incorporate a timeless standard: mixing metals. While the finishes should be limited to no more than three different metals, combining two or three metals in a space gives a chic, timeless, and sophisticated look that just cannot be achieved with a monochromatic finish look. Try mixing silver accents with pewter or bronze, or try pairing gold with iron. Play around and find which finishes speak to you, and see if you can combine them. Start small with metallic planters or frames, and build up from there.
