One of our favorite ways to add character and color to a space is by using metals, so we are very excited that one of this seasons top trends is metal. You might be saying, " Metals are not a trend- they have been around for thousands of years". You are almost right... we all remember 3rd grade science class, and we all remember the lesson on natural materials- metals are indeed a natural element. I would attempt to explain the science behind all of these beautiful elements, but I will leave that to google (but really, google it and let your mind be blown).
Although metals have been around for centuries, they have not always been popular to use within interior spaces. Metal products often get a bad rep for being too harsh or always "industrial". We are so thrilled that designers and home-owners are starting to recognize the variety of design aesthetics incorporated with the use of metal finishes. Metals can always add a level of sophistication, texture, and maturity to any space. There are so many metal finish options to choose from, but here at J&K we have a few favorites that we tend to use more than others. Today we are sharing our medal count for our favorite metals -Brass, Copper, Rose Gold, and Zinc. Plus we have added a trend alert, OXIDIZED METAL... this stuff is hot right now!
