If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed I am in love with copper, have a crush on pewter, adore silver & gold, and am flirting again with brass. And guess what? I can now put them all in the same vingette and none of them will be jealous for my attention!
2016 Favorite Design Trend: MIXING METALS!!
PEWTER. My mother’s mother collected pewter so I have some from her and from my husband’s family. All of the metals I am going to share with you have been passed down! I love imagining what they used them for and when! That is why I am so in love with vintage pieces.
SILVER: This tray is from my husband’s family. All the way from Sweden!
I love using silver on my Christmas tablescape design.
I just love this little kettle isn’t it adorable? The chalkboard tray is vintage copper as well.
It was beautifully rustic when my husband and I found it at an antique barn store. It was much too rusted to use. I wanted to be able to use it somehow, so I painted it with black chalkboard paint and use it as a sign. It is so much fun to change!
Add some BRASS and then you put them all together and they are even more fabulous than when they are all by themselves! Don’t you think?
I just had to share how cozy all the metals together are at night when we make a fire!
I would love to hear what your favorite design trend is for this new year!
