The Bright Way to Add More Pop
This year, silver, chrome and stainless steel are taking a backseat to warmer metals. For instance, Zillow Digs says shiny gold is 2015's "It" hardware finish, and Houzz forecasts that this year gold, copper and bronze will all share the spotlight.

To keep your home from coming off too Liberace-like, use the metals on smaller items, such as a faucet or cabinet pulls. Or, incorporate them as an accent color by giving a few decorative objects, such as a vase, serving tray or light fixture, a metallic makeover. (This can even be done with spray paint!)
