MIXING METALS: A BATHROOM UPDATE

Posted by Sara

By now you've read my post about bathroom metals (hi, mom).  As I mentioned there, designers will typically tell you to pick a finish and stick to it throughout a bathroom.  It's easier that way. But here at Gild & Wit we are bad-to-the-bone rule breakers and I wanted my room to be a mix of pieces that I loved, not just pieces that matched.  

So what metal finish did I choose? Drum roll, please...

All of them.

The mirrors in my master bath are brushed nickel.  Faucets are brushed nickel as well.  Medicine cabinet is a mirrored chrome.  Sconces are bronze and brass.  And my accessories are a mix of brass, chrome, wood, and marble. I went crazy.

I love it.  It screams "I'm a rebel!" as much as a bathroom possibly can.   

 

Here are a few of my other favorite spaces with mixed metals.
