Live Unique

Banish the Beige and Make Space for Metallics

Posted to Interior Inspiration by Charlotte on 19th September 2017

Whilst deciding how to freshen up your home this season, there's nothing wrong with playing it safe and focusing your décor scheme around neutrals. Don’t opt for any old neutrals however - be bold and banish the beige! Instead choose metallics, recently branded the ‘new neutrals’ by the likes of Elle Décor. Bringing a warm glow into living spaces, read on to discover our collection of homes that have fully embraced the latest trend.


The gold brushed wallpaper in this luxury bedroom at Rockefeller creates a contemporary backdrop for the marbled cushions, complementing the purple undertones which reign throughout the interior. Teamed with a duo of ornate gold-framed bedside tables, a warm but modern space is created with the help of a pair of elegant mirrors and feature pendant lighting.


The contemporary, glossy white kitchen at Moontide flaunts a scattering of rose gold accessories. Adding metallic accents, from the handles on the units to the draining rack, makes this modest space on trend, yet still fully functional. No compromise on functionality over fashion here.


Key metallic pieces create a contemporary look in the master bedroom at Voyager. This gold statement headboard enhances the room by creating a visually appealing focal point, with well-placed accessories such as the black bedside lamps adding a touch of timeless luxury.


The minimalist white kitchen at Delphin is enhanced with a pair of reflective copper pendant lights. Adding feature lighting creates a focal point for any room (especially those with pared-back interiors) and helps a minimalist space boast the latest interior design trends.

Avalon Manor

Avalon Manor’s drawing room has been thoughtfully curated, flaunting an over-sized bronze bowl, a gilded mirror over the mantel piece and a metallic framed side table which work in perfect harmony.

Atlas House

For a contemporary take on seaside chic, opt for cool chrome. Atlas House combines a chrome bed frame with mirrored furniture pieces and matching curtain poles to synchronise this stylish sleeping space. The neutral duck egg colour scheme and minimal maritime accessories nod to the nautical, creating an elegant coastal flavour.

Peacock Blue

The brave addition of gold metro tiles at Peacock Blue makes the most stylish of kitchen splashbacks. Team with matching fixtures and accessories to ensure that a cohesive look is created throughout.

The Parsonage

The glossy champagne-hued bed, satin wallpaper and simple selection of metallic accessories ensure the master bedroom at The Parsonage is a glamorous and fashionable space for guests to relax. Possibly the poshest pad in Worcestershire, this lavish country home is full of interior inspiration for those wanting to go gold and bold.
