Metallics are almost as versatile as your favorite neutrals, but they sure do make an impact on a room. Accessories in metallic colors are hugely popular and therefore easy to locate -- select shimmering cushions and light fittings for an effortless way to create an opulent look. If silver is your preferred metal, use grey as a base color on walls -- it is not a metallic, but it acquires this quality when combined with shiny pieces. Grey furniture is also the way to go -- the plush sleigh bed and footstool would be the ideal complement for this decadent look. Sparkly wallpaper is fabulous too, and using symmetrically placed strips is a sophisicated way to create a feature that won't over power the space.
