Move over Chrome

Well it seems that chrome needs to move on over and make room! Some serious contenders like brass, gold, rose gold and copper are popping up everywhere these days! Apple just recently released its IPhone 6s and this year’s new finish is rose gold. Scrolling through their site you can buy Apple’s beautiful accessories – Beats by Dr. Dre Studio Over Ear Headphones and Beats Pill 2.0 Speaker – both complete with gold accents. Talking about sleek personal accessories why not head over to a personal favorite? Michael Kors has so many amazing bangles in gold I couldn’t choose just one…….. you will find gold accents on his shoes, watches and purses. He even has a perfume line appropriately named Gold Collection Rose Radiant and 24K Brilliant Gold. Want to introduce one of these new metals in your home? No need to venture far. Locally, West Elm offers Gold Flatware and Perforated Metal Pendants. New introductions for EQ3 include the Metro Table Lamp and Ball Pendant in Copper. Over at Crate and Barrel they have many table options. Pictured below is the Lucida Side Table, CB2 showcases various photo frames. Provide Home offers local Vancouver Artist Martha Sturdy. Many of her pieces are available in spun brass. Blu Dot’s new 2D:3D medium bowl comes in copper. Last but not least – why not glam up that bathroom? Hans Grohe offers some of their Axor line in a gold finish. So it begs the question, are you on this gold spangled bandwagon or will you stay true to the classic chrome? What finish should win out in this metal mash up? Maybe there’s room for all? Share your thoughts? #area3designmetal
