In recent years, metallic accents have become more and more prominent in design – not just in interior design, but in fashion, as well. While it remains to be seen whether the trend will live on, it draws on some timeless elements like gold and silver that have remained in style for centuries. It’s all in how you use metallics that determines how classic or trendy it is.
One of the boldest ways you can use metallic accents is by putting it on the wall. Metallic wallpaper has been in style for a while now and there are a myriad of colors and patterns to choose from. They work great on an accent wall, such as in an entryway, or in a small space such as a powder room. But you can also use them in grander ways if it suits your style, such as wrapping an entire dining room in it.
Here are 10 metallic wall accent ideas to show you the many ways this look bring glamour and beauty to a space:
