The Eye-Catching Way to Add Texture—No Chunky Knits Required
"Mixed metallics peppered around a room can bring a wintry glam to any space. Vessels, trays, coasters and decorative objects are all great and affordable ways to mix in metallics. My rule of thumb is to make sure you have enough pieces of each type of metal so that they are evenly used around the room. Texture is all about layering pieces to give your eye more to look at. So, go ahead and layer. Just make sure you keep within one color palette so your decorating doesn't look messy."
