While warm metallic finishes like copper and brass remain a strong influence within interiors generally, their glamorous golden glow feels even more relevant at christmas. Here, metal-framed furniture and artwork is mixed with heavyweight curtains and plenty of feather-filled cushions in rich damasks and shiny satins. The result sings of luxury and opulence, while ramping up those all-important comfort levels. another great use of metallics is on the inside of lampshades, where the electric light will cast an even rosier glow on festivities.
