Using Black Metal Accents in Interiors

If 2015 was the year of copper, 2016 is all about the use of black metal. Introduced by the industrial trend that has dominated the past decade, black metal accents provide a strong, unflashy element to any interior. More classic and timeless than other materials, black metal says effortless interior style quite unlike anything else.

Use black metal in subtle accents; a couple of pendant lights in the kitchen, for example, table legs with a concrete top, or candlesticks and vases. The good thing about black is it goes with any other colour, but this style works best with pared-back interiors and white or soft pastel shades.
