Where all things beautiful collide

I usually talk about metallics, from silver to bronze to gold, closer to the holidays, but I’m really feeling a mix of metals right now, particularly gold and copper together.  The fall runways and pre-fall collections were sparkling with a good amount of metal, and I loved it all!  From a coppery pullover sweatshirt at Phillip Lim, to a sequined sports jersey dress at Tom Ford, and embellished looks at Erdem, copper was definitely the metal of choice, but other designers played with the mix.  Richard Nicoll capped off an all gold look with copper shoes, while Mary Katrantzou embellished dresses with silver and gold shapes, and Maiyet covered a skirt in paillettes in various shiny hues and black.  I love metals at home too.  West Elm, Anthropologie, and CB2 are great sources to bring the luxurious look of metal to any room of your home.  Make your kitchen sparkle with silver, gold, and copper canisters on the counter, or organize your desk with tri-tone trays.  my favorite place to play with mixed metals is on the dining table.  Mix silver rimmed plates with gold flatware, and vases painted with copper, for a super modern and chic table!  Metals will add some coolness to your hot summer and transition right into fall and the holidays to come!
