Collaborating metals is a designer trick of the trade, and it’s easy to make it work. Begin with your walls. Wallpaper in a metallic print makes an ideal background for complementary metal elements, like floor lamps, decorative bowls and tabletop sculptures. There’s flexibility in this style. The walls become a space’s groundwork, while the complete ambience can be revitalised with pieces in new tones (gold, copper, silver, pewter) and finishes (polished, brushed).
