I’ve been hard at work adding decor to the sitting room. Lets take a quick reminder of what we started with:
Then we went to:
The entire room is supposed to have a masculine feel and lately I’ve been focusing on adding metallic accents to give it a bit of a masculine (but pretty!) feel. I started with this gorgeous bronze mirror from Lamps Plus that has been traveling around the house looking for it’s perfect place. I think it finally found it!
Sitting on this custom file cabinet my husband had built in Italy, it makes a perfect vignette in this otherwise unused corner. I also hit up the file cabinet and the server with some Rub N’Buff in Gold Leaf on the hardware-it makes it really “pop” against the deep wood.
On top of the server I added this little brass tray and these gold rimmed glasses I found on clearance!
It makes me happy just looking at it! I totally remember hating gold and brass growing up but for some reason the past 6 months or so I am just in love with it!!
This antique mid-century table was a lucky craigslist find…the brass bottom with marble top fit perfectly with my vision for this room!
I think the table may get a little polishing soon to brighten the metal as well. (Adding that to my never-ending to-do list!)
We also added this bronze drum table and you can see I finally have at least one thing up on the walls! I bought this watercolor print of the basilica in Vicenza, Italy (where we used to live) on Etsy and framed it in a frame we already had on hand. I love how it looks up there and love that it’s someplace dear to us!
Do you want to add touches of metal to your decor? Here are a few awesome finds I rounded up for the insane selection over at Lamps Plus
