Mixed Metallics

There's no need to keep silver with silver and gold with gold in every room of your beach home. Go ahead and get creative by mixing metallics together and enjoy the eclectic results. Warm coppers, brushed golds, and steely grays are all welcome to mingle this season. Take a look at the pieces you already have in your vacation rental. Can you mix them up and use them in a different room, in a different way? Go for it! You are only limited to your imagination. It's easy to create an entirely new look just by swapping out your metals and mixing them in new places and new spaces.
