Use white as a canvas. 

We've said it before—when in doubt, white it out. It's a great blank slate when you want to incorporate metallics as it can mute down attention-grabbing accessories while still making the shine pop in a space. 

RL Tip: If you don't have white walls and you want to cop the look without repainting, you can do so by sticking to light-colored accessories and white statement pieces such as a fur rug instead.

Pair it with brights. 

If you're feeling adventurous and you want to make an eclectic decor statement, don't be afraid to mix metallics with other vibrant shades. Test the look without going over the top by adding a couple of gold ottomans in your living area before gradually adding more bling into your home.

Rose gold and copper work as well.

Metallics aren’t limited to bronze, gold and silver. If you aren't into stark shades, you can still incorporate the trend into your home with softer hues like rose gold and copper. Consider adding a few knickknacks that come in these colors into your vignette and pair it with grays for an extra glam palette.
