MUTED MET­ALS & MATTES

Real Living (Philippines) - - Get Inspired Décor Ideas -

LIGHT­ING: Flashy gold and cop­per light shades have had their day. This year, the disco ball shine will fig­ure only in small, sub­tle doses. Ac­cord­ing to the Se­bring Ser­vices web­site, a softer, matte gold will fea­ture in lamp­shades, while Edi­son-type bulbs will still be pop­u­lar in 2017. The DCP says that “design trend for light­ing will still be in a mod­ern ur­ban style,” with el­e­ments of con­trast­ing ge­ome­tries, clus­tered bub­bles, and faceted angeles. Usher in light­ing fix­tures in ba­sic col­ors like black, white, and cop­per in a so­phis­ti­cated matte fin­ish, sprin­kled with metal­lic ac­cents like rose gold.

The sub­tle shine and low-key fin­ish make this light­ing trend easy to in­cor­po­rate in any ex­ist­ing style—from min­i­mal­ist to industrial to rus­tic. For an eye-catch­ing state­ment, group to­gether three or four pieces in vary­ing heights.
