CHROME IS GETTING BACK IN TREND

Hey all, it’s Olga here and today’s post is about CHROME. Lately we’ve started to notice that chrome is taking the lead and  we definitely like it. Personally I’ve always preferred silver toned metals. Even though I enjoy seeing brass in other people’s homes/interiors, I have never been able to bring myself to buy any. I think it’s related to the fact that I only wear silver jewellery – I just don’t like how gold looks on me, maybe because it doesn’t complement my skin tone.

Anyway, it’s time to shine with chrome! By the way, most of the furniture and decor items that are ”chrome” actually consist of chromomium-covered metal such as steel or iron. The reflective quality of chrome makes it an eye-catching design material, especially when it comes to clean-lined, modern furnishing.

I know you might say that chrome can feel cold and sterile but it depends on how you mix it with everything else in a space.

 

HERE ARE SOME OF OUR FAVORITE INTERIORS WITH CHROME ACCENTS:

Don’t underestimate the aesthetic of wood and metal side by side. Notice how those chrome elements and grey kitchen fronts are complemented and softened by the natural wood floor.

Too much chrome look isn’t for everyone (for me either), but you can use chrome metal as an accent in your furniture and lighting fixtures.

Chrome goes well not only with grey/neutral tones. It looks great in a warm toned room as well, because it cools it down and balances it out in a subtle way.

The coolnes of chrome has a beautiful contrast with the warmer tones of leather and wood.
